Rapha, Braver Than The Elements Ride - Orange County :: CA
On December 20th, 2014 - I will be leading a ride from the beautiful little Southern California beach town of Laguna to the Marine Corps Base gates of Camp Pendleton.
We will be rolling out around 8:30 am, from the Crank Brothers office - and riding as a group the entire time. We will head South and do a warmup spin up Bluebird Canyon, and then head South on PCH. Most of the route will steer clear from cars, however, keep in mind this is Southern California and we will never be able to full escape auto traffic - we will have the opportunity to stop and enjoy some snacks and/or coffee in the San Clemente area. The pace will be mellow, so if you want to mash this isn't the ride for you. Sorry! Don't get my wrong, I absolutely adore riding with men and checking them out while they are sporting spandex - this is a women's ride...the more ponytails, and fancily painted fingernails the better!
Trek will have their demo fleet available to checkout and even test out during our easy 60 mile coastal adventure. Other amazing companies are going to be pitching in too - including Fizik Women's Team Velocita riders will be pedaling along side us.

Please keep in mind this is about a 60 mile ride, there will be roughly 2500 feet of climbing and we will be riding on major roads in Orange County. You will need to bring your own supplies: water, food and any spare parts you deem important. A helmet is absolutely required and sunscreen isn't a bad idea either!
If you are reading this, and NOT in Southern California - don't fret! There are rides all across the US lead by other Rapha Ambassadors and local shops- if there is not one in your area, you can register a ride on the site.
Sending Love from SoCal!
