I'm not looking for commitments, however, thought I would throw this out there for scheduling and training purposes.
Tour de Palm Springs - Feb 14, 2015 (I won't be there - already booked on a family event )
LA Marathon Crash Ride - March 15, 2015 - 3:30 AM - This is an awesome ride. And yes, that says 3:30 at night! Closed streets from Tangs donuts on Sunset to Santa Monica Pier. I've always taken the train back, but may be doing the round trip this year.
Burrito Ride - Irvine to San Diego then Amtrak back to Irvine. 103 miles. Date TBD, but hoping for first quarter 2015. I'm putting this together so it's not an officially supported ride, but should be a blast. It says 5,000 feet of climbing, but I may want to make a alternate route to cut that out. PhotoJoanne may want to go on this. It would be her first century, but she does not do climbing at this point. So, I may shave that off as an option with a regroup spot. I'd like to add flat miles, though so that we all get a full century in. There are also other train stations so there is some flexibility of ride lengths if someone wants it shorter. And we NEED a better name for this one, but I'm not feeling the creative juices. Burrito Ride comes from the SoCal forum. We can't steal that. And this ride is far enough out that the details will evolve over time. I just don't have the time this month to dig into it. Here is the route as it stands now.

Feel free to comment, but I'll start individual threads on the marathon and San Diego rides as we get closer. I'm sure someone will chime in with the Tour de Palm Springs.
