BEACH CITY DOUBLE CENTURY

Jim Cook and his team of family and friends are planning to host the new “Beach City Double Century” on September 22, 2018, and they are looking forward to you and your friends joining them for a fun day on your bike.  This new Double Century will showcase many incredibly beautiful vista points in Orange County.  The above photo was taken from one of those points on the new course.

The course includes the following:

Popular cities:

Laguna Beach
Corona Del Mar
Newport Beach
Huntington Beach
Sunset Beach
Seal Beach
Long Beach
Irvine
Lake Forest
Mission Viejo
Dana Point
San Clemente
and more…

Legendary course highlights:

San Juan Capistrano Mission
Florence Joyner Olympiad Park
Ole Hanson Beach Club
San Clemente Casino
Western White House

The Beach City Double Century will be a fully supported ride with aid stations every 25-30 miles, roving SAGs, and it will have a 19 hour time limit.  There is an estimated 10,000 Feet of Climbing on the course.

The course is well tested and proven since it is mainly based on the “Long Beach Century”, the “Olympic Road Race Century”, and the “Oceanside Century” which Chuck Bramwell has been leading in Orange County for many years with the Orange County Wheelmen as training rides for the Double Centuries.
