aiming to do a self-supported century this coming tuesday in the santa monica mtns but have only very cursory knowledge of a few roads.
looking for advice from the socal forumites whom have been there done that as to a good century or near century route that takes in much of what the area has to offer.
yes, prepared for lots of climbing, descending and wiggly/tight roads.
any reliable/good stores you can replenish water/drinks/grub at without having to descend to the valley or the coast?
would prefer a oceanside starting/finishing point semi-close to topanga canyon (as i am coming from san diego-less driving the better) and a loop ride if possible to see
as much of the area as i can.
planning on starting around 8am and i'll have all day. not looking to rush through it either. mainly looking to enjoy some new roads, scenery and challenges.
thanks in advance for any and all helpful advice!
