Breathless Agony June 6th

Orange County Wheelmen is proud to announce that the 24th Annual Breathless Agony Century is now open for early registration.

 

For 2020, we are bringing back the original route that includes Jack Rabbit Trail! "Yes, Jack is Back."

For those riders who want no part in riding the dirt sections of Jack Rabbit Trail, we will also offer a second route that excludes Jack Rabbit, but adds in Jenks Lake Road. Both routes are extremely challenging and only experienced well conditioned riders should attempt this ride (107 miles and 11-12,000 ft of climbing.)

 

For those riders tough enough to successfully reach Onyx Summit at 8440 feet, they will be entitled to order a finishers jersey. This jersey will not be sold to the general public and the only way to get one is to earn it.

 

Riders will begin the adventure in Sylvan Park, Redlands, then make their way to the first rest stop in Beaumont. With water bottles filled, riders will climb up and over Oak Glen to the second rest stop at Mill Creek Ranger Station. Damnation Alley on highway 38 is a steady 6-8% climb to the third rest stop at Angeles Oaks. After loading up on bacon, riders will begin the final tough climb to Onyx Summit where they will be met by the Grimm Reaper. Finishing medals will be awarded there, and riders can negotiate their way back down Highway 38 to the finish and lunch at Sylvan Park.

 

Individual timing will begin at the start and finish at the top of Onyx Summit.

 

For our veteran riders, you will note the date of our event has been pushed back one month with the expectation we will experience good mountain weather. The chances of rain are substantially less in June than late April.

 

Our lunch is once again being provided by the good people at Bristol Farms. Rest stops will have everything you need to complete your quest and we will have multiple SAG drivers on the road for support.

 

This is an epic ride, and one the seasoned rider must do to truly test and measure their fitness. We hope to see you on June 6th.
