Mike Nosco Memorial route from Dos Vientos

Cycling Route

82.59 mi
9,005 ft
Starting from the Dos Vientos community Park in Newbury Park, the route heads down the infamous Potrero "Long Grade" decent into the farming community of Camarillo. The peloton takes a short moment of silence near the fatal crash site of Mike before heading south to Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), where you will be treated to some of the most scenic coastline on the West Coast. The pace moves pretty quickly through the beginning of PCH and then it comes to a halting screech as the ride turns vertical up the much avoided and famous "Deer Creek" road climb. This is where it gets serious as the grade averages 12+% and hits 21% shortly after the first aid station. The route rolls along some of the most expensive and beautiful properties in all of the Santa Monica Mountains. The route heads back down Yerba Buena to PCH, turn left and go about 2 miles to the beginning of Mulholland Highway, turn left and climb for the next 7 miles. After the aid station at the top, turn right on route 23 (Westlake/Decker) for about a mile, veer left at Lechusa, which turns into Encinal Canyon, stay straight and head down for 5 very fast miles, turn left on PCH and follow this for the next several miles, again riding past some of the most expensive and beautiful properties on all of the West Coast. Turn left on Latigo Canyon and climb steady for the next 10 miles!. Turn right on Kanan for about a mile, turn left on Mulholland for about 2 miles, veer to the right at the wye and go another couple of miles, turn right at the stop sign Westlake/Potrero, drop down a very fast and dangerous decent (same route as the Amgen Tour of California stage), turn left at Potrero road and go through Hidden Valley, turn right on Reino Road, turn left on Lynn Road, turn right on Las Brisas and head back to the start at Dos Vientos Community Park.
