2011 Cruisin' the Conejo - So. Califorina - Saturday April 30, 2011

For full information see: https://www.cruisintheconejo.org/







Cruisin’ is back for the 27th time with all its fabulous routes from the children's 12 mile Junior Tour to the full 100 mile century. Set in the gorgeous Southern California countryside of the Conejo Valley and its surrounds. This area is now the spring training ground of choice for several world class pro cycling teams.

For the past 26 years Cruisin' has been held the Saturday before Mothers Day. This year and moving forward we have moved Cruisin' off of Mothers Day weekend in order to be able to spend more time with mom. We hope to see everyone April 30, 2011.

We could not put on this great event without the crucial work of BSA Troop 753, Cub Scout Pack 3753, and our volunteers. Thank you to all.


ROUTES
  • 12 mile Junior Tour: This 12-mile guided ride is targeted at those between ages 9 to 15, and it's a perfect way to get started with cycling. We specifically offer a low admission price for this route which covers child and parent complete with lunch for both. Each participant must be accompanied by an adult.
  • 21 mile Scenic Cruise: Both guided and unguided, this ride takes you through the Conejo Valley communities of Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village. The route is not completely flat. There are a few hills going into and out of Hidden Valley. This is a short-cut tour, taking about 14 miles out of the 35-mile route. Most of the 21.2 mile ride is on bike paths.
  • 35 mile Scenic Cruise: This ride takes you through the Conejo Valley communities of Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Oak Park, and Agoura Hills. There are a few hills (1500 feet of climbing), but most of the ride is on bike paths. The ride is actually 34.8 miles, but we thought you wouldn’t mind if we rounded up.
  • 62 mile Challenging Metric Century: The challenge starts midway through the Scenic Cruise as you make the famous Rock Store climb up Mulholland into the Santa Monica Mountains. There are breathtaking views that are certainly worth the stop as you catch your breath. The descent down highway 23 back into the Conejo Valley will remind you of the excitement of the old “E-ticket” rides at Disneyland. The ride takes you through Hidden Valley before returning to the start point. The ride measures 61.8 miles and has 4500 feet of climbing.
  • 68 mile Moderate Metric Century: If your heart sinks at the sight of the climbs in the Challenge Metric Century then you will love this extended metric route. You start off with the 34 mile scenic route and then join the Full Century riders in Hidden Valley and cruise down into the Oxnard Plain, returning to the Conejo Valley through the communities of Moorpark and Simi Valley. The ride measures 67.9 miles and has about 3000 ft of climbing.
  • 100 mile Full Century: Our fabulous full century route. After riding the Challenge Metric Century through the Santa Monica Mountains you will descend into the rich farm lands of Camarillo in the Oxnard Plain, returning to the Conejo Valley through the communities of Moorpark and Simi Valley. The ride measures 100.7 miles (6000′+ of climbing). A challenge for the serious century rider.

JERSEY
