Iconic Ride: Hsi Lai Temple

62.7 mi, 2160 ft, Hsi Lai Temple - shortest route - Ride Leader : Mario    

We haven't visited Hsi Lai since May 2019. Pandemic restrictions have eased and they now offer a tour - which I signed for. Please come and enjoy the beautiful Temple grounds and various shrines at this large complex.

At 63 miles, this is one of the longer Tuesday Explorer routes. Plan accordingly - we are not going to be hurried. We are doing the shortest possible out and back route, but elapsed time will be slow because most of that is urban riding.  With an estimated 2.5 hours to traverse 31 miles,  arrival at the Temple will be around 11:30. Add a 30 minute tour and some walking around, I estimate being at the temple until ~1215-1230. Return will be around 245-3pm. 

Pace : L2
Ride start is 9am, at the plaza just south of Captain Kidd's
The Tuesday ride varies by design. If you want novelty, this is your ride. Routes vary between ~35-55 miles, 1000-3000 feet of climbing, typically in the middle third of the distance range (41-49 miles). If we go to an eating place, expect a "digestion pace" on the return.

We often go to places that would otherwise be too crowded on a weekend (eg, Hollywood Sign, Inspiration Point, Porto's, etc). We are usually done by 1-2pm, and a coffee or meal stop is customary (usually at the end; sometimes that's the destination).

"Beach Cities Cycling Club, South Bay" is a 501(c)7 non-profit mutual benefit organization.
