Route

Beautiful, sunny California beckons for a 3 day cycling adventure starting at the Palm Garden Hotel in Thousand Oaks.

From this start point we descend on Potrero Road, everyone’s favorite route to the fertile valley on our way to the shoreline route to Santa Barbara. Both Century and Metric options are available on day 1. Riders will be able to walk across the street from the hotel to the beach and Pacific Ocean.

On Day 2 we loop around Santa Barbara past old missions on a relaxing ride with minimal ascent.

On the third and final day we travel south, along the coast to one of the prettiest parks on the shoreline. Pt Mugu State Park will provide the venue for the “survivors’ dip” and the celebration of the accomplishment of riding 200 miles.

Tour de Pink is closely following the developments from recent natural disasters in California. Updates to our precise route will likely be made as we assess road conditions and other factors in the area.

Ride totals: 204 miles. 6,700 feet elevation
