The Beach Babe Bicycling Classic begins at Shoreline Aquatic Park near the Long Beach Aquarium with a single-file red carpet-style start, around Rainbow Harbor, then onto the wide, two-laned beach bike trail right on the beach! You will feel an immediate sense of exhilaration as you cruise along the sandy shore with your girlfriends along on your favorite, cute, BIKE! The course is mostly flat and takes you through some of the most beautiful coastal seaside neighborhoods in the world. It’s an insiders tour, for sure – and you will want to join us each year as the Beach Babe Classic grows to becomes the largest recreational cycling event for women in the country.
Two Routes – 15 or 36 Mile
Bike riders of all levels and ages will enjoy the 15 and 36 mile routes that are essentially “out and back” courses. You’ll wind along the beach bike path from Long Beach, through the canals of Naples, to Seal Beach, Sunset Beach, and then Huntington Beach to the turnaround. Bike Taxis are available should you find yourself unable to complete the ride. Ride includes full rest stop support, delicious food, tech support, course lead and sweep, finisher’s gift and bragging rights!
A short portion of the course is on Pacific Coast Highway in painted bike lanes. Vehicular traffic can be moderate during this stretch, so remember the laws for cars and bicycles are the same under California law.
