Team Long Beach is hosting our First Annual “Ride n Lunch” on Saturday, April 7!
This ride will feature a challenging 59-mile fully supported Ride followed by a delicious lunch at one of our favorite sponsors, Paradise Piano Bar!
The day will begin at Bixby Park (Ocean Ave between Junipero and Cherry Streets), and will include some of the best scenery that Long Beach and the surrounding areas have to offer.... oh, and don't forget some HILLS! The route will take us across Signal Hill and then out to Whittier to climb Turnbull Canyon before looping back down the San Gabriel River trail to Long Beach.
