Calling all wheelers: O.C. Beach Cities Ride October 29th 9 a.m. Sorry for the short notice. Just got a new wheel and I'm a bit distracted. Free street parking near 1401 Bayside Dr, Corona Del Mar, CA 92625 https://maps.app.goo.gl/UyJmDWmcaCf7CiD7A Note: Take the 73 and exit at MacArthur for free. MacArthur is the last free exit before the toll road begins. ____________________________________ The ride goes through Balboa Island, across the ferry to the Peninsula. We'll take the beach side bike path up through Newport Beach, continue up through Huntington Beach, Bolsa Chica Beach and then Sunset Beach. . Total miles: Approx 30-/+ Skill: Moderate (pedestrians, dogs, bikes, surfboards). We'll be on hard, flat, level ground for most of the ride. There are a couple of short distances we'll cover on residential streets and a short distance on the sidewalk along PCH to cross the bridge. I gauged the safety aspects of these portions for new, or younger riders and feel everyone should be good. This ride should be much less crowded than our first run on this path considering it's a weekday. ____________________________________ Photo opps: Yup Recharge opps: Yup Food opps: Yup Drinking opps: Duh!

Calling all wheelers: How about a Sunday ride along some O.C. beach cities August 4th? Post your interest anywhere in here. This first post is the official ride information. It will be updated regularly. ____________________________________ PLEASE RSVP for lunch in Sunset Beach. ____________________________________ Meet up: Avon Lot 2 at 10:00 a.m. Be ready to depart on a shuttle at 10. That means arrive early to park, pull gear, get the code for free parking, etc. Here's the link to my post on how to get free parking. Free parking requires advance planning and it will take extra time on Sunday. Arrive early. Address: 208 Tustin Ave, Newport Beach, CA Route: We'll take the shuttle from Avon Lot 2 to Balboa Peninsula. We will meet other riders at the gazebo in Balboa Peninsula Park at about 10:20. Image of the secondary meetup point. Some riders don't want to shuttle and are riding to this point first. (approx 10:20, 10:30?) https://maps.app.goo.gl/V5XyFV7AaPijKxwg6 We'll have quick, a three minute safety briefing and then we're off. Then we'll take the beach side bike path up through Newport Beach. Then take the beach side bike path up through Huntington Beach. There'll be a short side trip up Main Street for the more adventurous types. We'll continue on up the beach side bike path to Sunset Beach for lunch, refreshments and recharging (for the mere mortals) and then through Huntington Beach and on back to Newport. We'll jump back on the shuttle at any number of stops (in other words, we don't have to go all the way back to Balboa Peninsula). To be clear... Some people are riding the shuttle down to Balboa Peninsula. This is just a choice. I feel it is safer for some than crossing PCH and then getting over to the beach walk. If you want to ride the whole way down you're welcome to, of course. But I didn't clock how long it took us to do that portion. And I certainly don't know how long the shuttle takes. Some people are leaving up to an hour early to leave Avon Lot 2 and ride to Balboa Pier. The rallying point is the Pavilion in the park. I do not know how long it takes the shuttle to go from Avon Lot 2 to Balboa Peninsula Park so we'll just see how it goes. Total miles: Approx 30-/+ Skill: Moderate (pedestrians, dogs, bikes, surfboards). We'll be on hard, flat, level ground for most of the ride. There are a couple of short distances we'll cover on side, residential streets and a short distance on the sidewalk along PCH to cross the bridge. I gauged the safety aspects of these portions for new, or younger riders and feel everyone should be good. NOTE: Arrive earlier if you want to get the free parking. Here's the link to my post on how to get free parking. It requires some advance preparation and even a few more minutes on the day of the ride. Please do as much of the app work ahead of time so that we are all available to take the first available shuttle. ____________________________________ Photo opps: Yup Recharge opps: Yup Food opps: Yup Drinking opps: Duh!
