NOTE: THIS RIDE HAS BEEN RE-SCHEDULED FROM MAY 11TH DUE TO A CONFLICT WITH THE TOUR OF CALIFORNIA.
This is the official full and metric century of the month for May and one of our twelve training rides in preparation for the Grand Tour in June. The trainers are great rides whether you plan on riding in the Grand Tour or not.
There are two routes; a metric and a full century. Both routes ride the twin peaks but the metric includes only one of the flying pigs; the full century has both. We won't say where the pigs are - you will have to discover them for yourself en route. The two peaks are the summits of Topanga Canyon and Old Topanga Canyon.
Check out our web page at http://www.lawheelmen.org/route-overview-2/?target=twin-peaks-&-flying-peaks for full details; description, maps, and route sheets including access to downloadable files for your bike computer (for turn-by-turn directions, logon or create a free RideWithGPS account, copy the route in RideWithGPS, download that copy and upload it to your bike computer).
Cycling involves significant risks so please never let your guard down, know and follow the rules of the road and always exercise safety.
Please wear a helmet and bring flat tire repair gear (tubes, tire levers, pump and C02). Don't forget water.
If you will be joining us for the first time, be sure to bring a signed release of liability waiver and hand it to the ride leader or to a club member at the start. Download the waiver at http://www.lawheelmen.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Waiver-and-Release-of-Liability-2013.pdf. Hope to see you there!
