Orange County, California MV,RSM Loop, Sunday April 7th

Recommended Posts

Join me this Sunday, April 7th, for a 37 miles ride around Mission Viejo and Rancho Santa Margarita.  This loop is one of my favorite cross country routes because it has scenic variety, smooth flowing terrain, and minimal traffic signals.  This ride is on streets, bikeways, and sidewalks.  No offroading this time.

The path is reflected in this map (except we won't cross Trabuco Creek this time):

Some of the features included in this ride:
Oso Creek
Arroyo Trabuco Wilderness
O'Neill Regional Park
RSM Lake
Aliso Creek Bikeway

Below is a Google Maps pin identifying the start location for this group ride.  We will meet here at 9:30am and depart at 10:00am.

I'll be there.

Maybe you could post a Google Map Pin instead? I can't access your Google Drive link.

Does this pin work better?

Is the first map link inaccessible also?

Yes, much better. This is where we met last time too, right? Should be plenty of parking here for the 20 or 30 guys that are going to show up, right?

If Charlinda is full, there is parking in the shopping center.

 @n2eusWill there be a location where we can make a pit stop to do a fast charge to get that extra few miles some of us might need ? I have a KS18L.

You could always do a partial ride which can still be fun.

I’m in the same boat.  I think it is time to upgrade from my V8!  Haha

Sounds like a good ride and it will be good to see you again.Have not seen you on a group ride in over a year and was starting to think that all those years of radiation exposure had caught up with you.:w00t2:

I really do need to start taking weekends off.  This work thing is interfering with my wheel time!

I have work at 2pm that day, so as long as it's a wrap by 1:20 ish (for me), I can probably make it... Actually I just looked up how far it is from where I'll be working and I guess it may not be the best for me...🤔 I'm a slight maybe...

You know how these group rides go. It'll probably be a 4-hour ride. Of course you could always ride for a couple of hours and Uber back to your car which will never be more that 4-miles away. Realistically, just ride straight back to your car. Look at the map - the ride is a giant loop. At any point you can take a straight line back to the car.

This goes for anyone else who has a small capacity wheel.

Good call. I work in Manhattan Beach that day so looks to be an hour and change away, so I'll probably join y'all and cut out early...🧠

Depending on rider weight, we could do a wheel swap at my house (approx. 29 miles), and swap back later.  MSuper3S+ or Tesla.

 Marty's idea works also.

I think Marty's solution would work, but you would miss the best features in this route.

I like to ride every day, so feel free to PM me and propose a future schedule that works for you.

This goes for anyone else who would prefer another schedule as well.

You can never satisfy everyone's needs, so you just have to schedule rides and enjoy whatever comes from it. Plan the rides that you like, not the other way around. The odds are you'll get a few compatible riders for any given ride that you want to schedule.

This is why sometimes I'll announce a ride on very short notice. I'm going on the ride regardless, but it'll be great if others feel like joining.

It would be great if someday, any given weekend there are multiple public rides announced and we all can pick and choice what we feel like doing that particular day.

I'm trying to decide which wheel to bring; ACM, MSuper, MSX, KS18XL, or the Monster

Leaning towards the ACM since this is a mostly suburban ride.

I'm rearranging my schedule now, looks like I might make it.  Any stops midway to quick charge my wheel?  Grab a beer? You know, just essentials.

I need to confess, I'm an addict as well. :roflmao: I'm also thinking of putting my order in for that 16X.

Thats how I bought my first wheel. I got my computer out and got to the point where all I had to do is hit the buy button. A few adult beverages later and I had accidentally hit the button. You can imagine my surprise when I got the FedEx notice. :innocent1:
