Join Team Friendship: LA to S Diego on August 19-20, 2018 for an exhilarating and meaningful experience of a lifetime.
Alongside fellow Team Friendship cyclists, you will conquer mile after mile of famous ocean views. Friends and family will gather at the finish line to celebrate your accomplishment with you.

The ride beings each morning at 7:00 AM with pit stops approximately every 20 miles for cyclists to replenish drinks and snacks and make basic bike adjustments.The pace will be between 13-20 mph on average. Cyclists will be required to keep an average of a 13 mph pace throughout the ride. Directions will be provided before every ride. Cyclists will be required to ride with a partner.


Safety is an utmost priority. We anticipate riding 130 miles over the course of the ride. That's a lot of miles! Safety rules will be in place for every mile, under all conditions. Safety includes adequate hydration and nutrition, helmets, visibility in all weather conditions, distance between bicycles, announcing all road obstacles in group rides, front and back flashers, bike mirrors, and more. These components will be strongly emphasized throughout the ride.


A group of dedicated support staff will be there to help you on your journey. You will not need to worry about food, accommodations or pit stops. There will be a bicycle mechanic traveling alongside the group in a support vehicle. 


All meals will be strictly Kosher and designed to provide cyclists with sufficient energy for the ride. A full breakfast will be served each morning before the ride. Lunch will be nutritionally designed to keep you going throughout the ride. A Hot dinner will be served at night. Fuel efficient snacks will also be provided at pit stops throughout the ride. 


Majority of the traveling will be on the seats of bicycles. Cyclists will be provided with GPS files and cue sheets to follow the route. Team Friendship will provide transportation from S Diego to Los Angeles following the finish line. 


This ride is unquestionably an endurance challenge. The only way to be successful is to have a highly tuned, efficient engine. The only way to have that kind of human engine is by continual long-distance training. The best way to do that is by gradual build-up, to the point of consecutive days with long distance rides. Cyclists will receive the training plan upon completion of registration.
