Transportation: The finish location is 2.5 miles from the Camarillo Amtrak Station via bicycle. Check with Amtrak’s Sunday schedule. Be aware that Amtrak has only limited space for bicycles and some trains require bicycles to be boxed. Access to the 101 Freeway is very convenient. Several hotels are nearby as well.

A safe / responsible option is to drop your car at one of the nearby hotels and return to your start location by train. Your car will be waiting for you at the hotel when you finish. That way you can get some sleep before driving home.
