Saturday Dec 29 - Four Days of Fitness

  • River Trail parking lot 27103 McBean Parkway Valencia, CA 91355 usa (map)

The group meet-up is at the head of the bike path parking lot (near McDonald’s)

This is a very large group ride with a demanding pace. Started by Neil Shirley, it is a wonderful way to finish your year and get ready for the next.


“It is that time again….the time of year when the weather starts to get “cooler” and another year of 4 Day to Fitness is upon us. This year's edition of 4 Days to Fitness will be starting on Saturday, December 29th and completing on January 1st, 2019. As always, we will be getting in solid miles on the surrounding roads and hills of Santa Clarita.

4 Days to Fitness Routes and Details
Each day will start at 8:30 AM from the parking lot adjacent to the bike path near McDonald's off McBean Pkwy. 27103 McBean Pkwy, Santa Clarita, CA 91355
Four consecutive days of riding in and around Santa Clarita with a large group
There is NO cost other than helping out with gas for any follow vehicle we might have
Everyone is responsible for themselves. Please know the routes for each day or have them loaded on your GPS head units.
Have tools and supplies to fix any issue you might have.

4 Days to Fitness is about getting in good social base miles. This is not a race, so please do not impact the group if your riding goals are different from the group. That being said, there will be an opportunity every day to stretch out the legs. Those sections will be covered at the start of each ride.

Look for most days to average between 17-19 mph. Due to the wide-ranging fitness of the group, expect multiple groups to form along the routes. We will have one to two re-groups each day to allow these groups to reconnect with the main group.

Everyone is responsible for themselves, so please make sure that you know the route and are self-sufficient in case you get dropped from the group or have a flat tire. Obey all rules of the road and have fun! “
