#GoSummer with Sierra Nevada!
Self-Guided Training Rides

Thanks to the generous support of our friends at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, we've put together a number of training ride options all over LA County to help you prepare for the LA Rivers Challenge! Each ride is a loop and covers a different part of LA County, taking advantage of available bicycle infrastructure where possible. Best of all, as you ride, you can think about that cold beer you'll get to enjoy at the end from one of the recommended Sierra Nevada retailers!

Make sure you show us your training rides and finish line beers on social by tagging #GoSummer, @sierranevada, and @lacbc.

NOTE: These routes are recommendations only. All riders should ride within their ability and take all appropriate safety precautions. Please do not drink and ride.
