Getting ready for the Poway Century? Just looking for a fun Sunday morning ride? Here's your chance.
This will be a social, NO DROP ride. Around 50-65 miles. Some climbing.
When? Sunday, September 10. Meet at 7:30am, ready to roll at 8:00am sharp.
Where: Bonita Creek Park in Newport Beach (University and La Vida off of Jamboree). This is the same starting point as the Santiago Canyon Ride (July 30th).
Route: We'll start by going up Newport Coast from Vista Bonita toward PCH. Then steep Vista Ridge loop which connects back to Newport Coast. Then Newport Coast to PCH, heading North on PCH for water/coffee/snack break in Huntington Beach. Continue North on PCH as far as group decides, perhaps to Long Beach. Return on PCH to Newport Coast for another climb. Can repeat Newport Coast climb as group sees fit.
UPDATE: We'll be stopping at Starbucks in Huntington Beach (on Main street, a few blocks up from PCH) between 9:30 and 10:00am. Just in case anyone wants to grab a coffee with us, or join us for some or all of what's left of the ride...
Post-ride lunch, of course.
All are welcome! Just post to the thread if you're coming, so we'll know to look out for you.
UPDATE: Here's my attempt to map this route. I did it as an out-and-back, turning around at PCH and Warner in Huntington Beach (we could go further North if the group decides). It's 51.4 miles as mapped below:
