YAY! Well, we'll have to figure out a way to estimate your arrival time!

I did the RTS (Riverside to Surfside) prelude this morning. Well, I didn't do the whole ride. I rode from the Riverside Medical Clinic on Arling & Brockton and rode the route to the beginning of the Sant Ana River Trail at the Green River Golf Course. It's 22 moles to that point. I got a late start, so I did the ride solo.

The century route starts at the Riverside Medical Clinic. From there it turns left on Brockton Ave. Brockton turns into Mary St. Then you turn right on Victoria Ave. Victoria Ave. is one of the prettiest streets in Riverside. One lane (plus a bike lane) separated by palm trees. Only two traffic lights along the route. A few stop signs, though. The City of Riverside is supposed to sweep the bike lanes before the ride on Saturday. Just past La Sierra there's some construction and there are some steel plates that take up over half the right lane.

Then there's a right turn onto Fillmore. That thkes you to Indiana Ave. where you make a left turn. just past Pierce Ave. there's a 1/4 mile strech of rough road. Probably best to take the lane here. Continuing on Indiana, you pass an indian burrial ground on the left.Then you make a right on Mckinley, then a left turn on Magnolia. The good news is that the construction has been completed on the west-bound side of Magnolia. The bad newsis there's still a couple of rough spots on the east-bound side.

Continue on Magnolia (turns into 6th St.) and turn RIGHT on Rimpau. Last year you turned left on Rimpau and climbed up the hill. This year the hill climb has been eliminates. Take Rimpau until it ends and turn left on Quarry. Be careful going onto Quarry since theres som holes. Then you turn right on West Grand. Be careful crossing Main St. There's a couple of troughs where the wheel of cars have worn down the blacktop. It took me by surprise.

Then it's right onto Railroad St. The good news about Railroad St. is that it has been re-paved and is nice and smooth. the bad news is that the bike lane is one of those half blacktop half concrete rain gutter things. I recommend staying on the blacktop side. It's smooth sailing to the first rest stop at the Metrolink station.

After the rest stop you continue on Auto Centre Dr. and cross the 91 freeway. When you get to the 91, the right lane is right turn only and you ceed to get into the left lame. Then the road turns into Serfas Club Drive. Then it's a right onto Palisades. It's pretty much downhill and smooth except for a deep six-inch hole I saw about 1/4 mile from the turn. I just had a glance at it, but I couldn't see the bottom.

Then it's right onto Green River. Don't gee to close to the line, because there's a two-inch drop-off onto gravel. There are also some srorm drains with wide grates as you get closer to the 91. After the freeway, there's a couple of fast-food restaurants and gas stations. Watch for cars exiting the freeway and going into and out of the stores. After that it's smooth sailing (cycling) and very little traffic to the entrance to the SART.

Hope this helps.

Jim

p.s. I hope the weather next weekend is just like today: perfect.

true theres little traffic after the Green River stores and shops but there is a trailer park just at the bottom of a down hill around a semi blind curve. you can easily top 40 down that hill with minimal effort... however...one car coming out of that trailer park can ruin your whole day ! Just before getting to the SART there's another small downhill I almost bought it there one day with a disgruntled golfer who must have missed his tee time. Other than that it is like a very safe ride.

One thing that bothers me though...it could be C...o...l...d at the start. I think I'll hunt the goodwillbag for an old jacket or sweater and just trash it when it warms up a bit

Are you doing the ride Chuckie? I don't have to work Friday night so I should be able to get on the trail a lil earlier.

Wonder what time the riders will get on my usual on the trail? Maybe I'll get lucky and run into a few of the BF riders. Should be fun!

But then again, I always say I'm getting up early and never do! How far into the ride do the century riders hit the trail? 20, maybe?

Hey Isits, did the club do the prelude on Saturday? Gina and I rode for a bit with and around the club. I didn't think of it then. An older gentleman in a polka dot jersey, about 5 women and a few other guys? Was prolly your group, maybe you were with them at your turnaround point? The polka dot guy was kicking but for a while. I ran into them right before the Pond stop on the way back. We stopped with them for a bit at the waterstop too.Hmmm just wondering!...I was wearing a Tour de Palmprings t-shirt.

I rode the first 20 miles or so by myself. The others from the club started around 6:30. I didn't get rolling till about 9:30. I'll be doing the ride. They have enough volunteers.

I'll be doing the ride. They have enough volunteers. What time are you and Sirlance planning on getting to the start. I'd like to get a picture of the three of us before I get dropped.

Is Brandy going to meet us in HB?

If the weather ends up as predicted, it looks like I'll be riding my rain bike.

Hope it doesn't rain. We might be on the tandem Saturday. Gotta test ride it. Just had the rear hub body replaced and new bearings packed. Maybe we'll see you out there!

I'll be starting out at 7:30 from the Riverside Medical Clinic. I'll look for a Chuck's Madone. If the weather is ok, I'll be riding my fire-engine red Bianchi. If there's any hint of rain I'll be riding my black touring bike with the fenders.

Not sure if you'd want to ride with that guy. One of the last times I rode with the guy, he was blowing down the trail at 30mph!....and that was on one of his 90 mile rides

Dang! I wish the weather would make up it's mind! The weather report first says lots of rain then says scattered showers. I don't know what bike to mount the Brooks on. (haven't gotten one for the new bike yet.) If I have to carry a lot of stuff to cover all the contingencies (sp?), I'll put on one of my panniers on my touring bike and carry it there. Not doing the ride is not an option. In a way, I'm hoping for rain. I did the TOSRV in May and it rained both days. Had a blast anyway.
