Two Route Distances – 15 or 38 Miles
Whether you ride the long course or short course you the route is essentially “out and back” along the same general route. Rest stops are at the mid point on the course in Seal Beach and at the turnaround point in Huntington Beach. Refreshments will be provided there, just show your wristband to gain entrance to the rest stop. If your plan is to do the shorter 15 mile course, your turnaround will be Seal Beach. Turn sheets with specific directions will be handed out at rider check-in at the event.
A short portion of the course is on Pacific Coast Highway in painted bike lanes. Vehicular traffic can be moderate during this stretch, so remember the laws for cars and bicycles are the same under California law. This means to ride on the same side of the street as a car, in the same direction. Stop at all stop signs, all traffic lights, and be aware of other riders and drivers. When crossing large intersections, we do recommend using the pedestrian traffic signals for left turns since your bike travels in the slow lane. Keep it simple and safe!
Please keep in mind that all course details are subject to change so stay tuned for the official course details, route sheets and maps during the week prior to June 14, 2015.
