We’re proud to have been affiliated with the Peninsula Cycle Club, of the South Bay and Palos Verdes Peninsula since 1992. Many exciting events continue each year with the club.
The club’s annual Steve Hartt San Pedro to San Diego ride is held during the month of the Tour de France (July). A truck meets us at our starting location, so we can leave a change of clothes and other personals aboard and then we ride 113 miles to San Diego, meet the truck to stow our bikes safely away, change our clothes, and then go out for dinner. A luxury bus brings us back to our starting location. This event is limited to 60 riders. The fee for the event covers the bus trip, snacks, ride support and dinner (alcoholic drinks are extra). If you’d like to sign up or help at this event, contact Tony at The Bike Palace at 310-832-1966.
Peninsula Cycle Club now has three California state cycling champions and a points incentive program for USAC licensed racers of $5/point earned for the club.
Club jerseys, sox, gloves, and bibs are available for purchase. It’s never too late to be a team or club event sponsor. Contact Tony if you’d like to be a team sponsor.
Weekly rides both on the road and in the dirt of various levels are offered.
On Wednesdays, we have Lunch Rush at the Cabrillo Marina. This is a flat, speedy workout for those who want to do paceline, drafting and pack riding at speed. A great 50 minute workout. Riders of all capabilities are invited. Most riders are intermediate level, but the loop is repeated so you can shortcut and jump back in the group if you can’t keep up. This ride meets at The Bike Palace at 11:50AM on Wednesdays.
On Fridays we have a Lunch Rush on Miner, not far from the Wednesday Lunch Rush and running right past the historic S.S. Lane Victory. Same bat-time, same bat-station for the meeting place!
