That may be the shortest CicLAvia yet. I think I'll plan a group ride for that day that can swing by and partake for a bit and then continue to Long Beach / Seal Beach and further.

I second that plan.  Looking forward to riding in that area, maybe lunch in Belmont Shore???  Or, and I’m just throwing it out there...Hooters

I think if we eat at Hooters again, it'll become the tradition for that ride :efefd0f676:. Is that a bad thing? :confused1:

So if we do the "big" ride which includes swinging by the CicLAvia and then proceeding to Long Beach with lunch at Hooters, you could certainly start with us in Downey and do a fair bit of the beach (including lunch of course) before having to turn around. Who knows, if you were to charge at Hooters (which some of us have done) you could probably make the entire loop if you manage your energy consumption (don't ride fast). I've done this loop on my 995wh Z10.

Anyway, options to consider.

Maybe I can sweet talk a server into letting me plug in with my fast charger then it’s no problem.  Once I win the new KS16X then I’ll be able to leave the charger at home. 😉

If you have a fast charger then you're set. We've been here multiple times and it's no problem plugging-in. No sweet-talking necessary, but don't let that stop you :efefd0f676:

I would hope to come on this ride too but I don't have a fast charger and ride a 16S so likely will only be able to do a small section

Ask another rider to bring a KS charger and also get hold of a Charge Doctor, et voila!... a fast charger, 4 Amps. 

EDIT: Make sure the chargers and the Charge Doctor are compatible

It’ll still be a lot of fun and we’ll worth the effort.  If you happen upon a charge doctor then I’d be happy bringing my slow charger too if that helps get you the range.

Considering that it's possible to just do this ride with a 1000wh wheel, you could do the majority of the ride, not a small section. Particularly if you're will to Uber back. If you need to ride back then you will probably be limited to 1/2 the ride. It'll still be a fun time.
