The Beach City Double Century was inspired and made possible by Chuck Bramwell.  It 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 has been leading in Orange County for many years with the Orange County Wheelmen as training rides for the Double Centuries.

Special NdZONE Recognition;  Jim Cook wrote: “A special thank you to Chuck Bramwell and Hugh Murphy for all their contributions.  Their energy, ideas, and suggestions have been significant forming the new Beach City Double Century. I have been so fortunate to have their help.”

The Beach City Double Century was first added to the California Triple Crown in 2018, and continues to be scheduled on the CTC Ride Calendar at  and completing it counts as credit toward winning your California Triple Crown.

The Beach City Double route goes through Santigo Canyon, Live Oak Canyon, Florence Joyner Olympiad Park, Laguna Canyon, Laguna Beach, Inspiration Point, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach (Surf City, USA), Seal Beach, Long Beach, and turns around at the Queen Mary, then back to Newport Bay and through the Back Bay to Irvine for lunch. After lunch then the route goes through Mission Viejo to Wagon Wheel Canyon, San Juna Capistrano, Capo Beach, down to a beautiful ocean view park in San Clemente, and then back to Irvine via Dana Point, Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo, and Lake Forest.

The Beach City Double Century is a fully supported ride with aid stations every 25-30 miles, roving SAGs, and it has a 19-hour time limit.  The time limit is soft if more time is needed it will be provided within reason and safety limits.  The route is an estimated 186 miles with 7200 feet of climbing.

Hydration and nutrition are important. You are expected you to have two large water bottles and/or a high capacity hydration system, and you should be experienced with using a hydration supplement.  Bring that supplement with you and use it. A double century event is not the place to experiment with new hydration and/or nutrition. You should be using the hydration and nutrition that you train with on your daily rides on this event.

We will have seven fully stocked and placed aid stations.  We will have some of Hammer products, snacks, fruit and bottled water.

All Route Slips and RWGPS files will be up-to-dated on 9/17/2024.
