    Tour de Poway prep ride -- Sept 10

    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).

    Map here.

    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:

    No early morning climb of Vista Ridge (or the nastier other side, whatever that road is called) to simulate having to climb Poway Grade early in the day with a lot of mileage left to go?

    I'll be there.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    Oh yeah, I left that out by accident. Good idea. Consider it added (I'll edit now).

    It's called Ridge Park Rd.

    I'll be doing the Amtrak Century the day before, so I'll see how I feel. Maybe if Jason will PM me his cell phone number I might meet you along the way.

    I'll be doing the Pacific Coast Tri that morning. My wave goes off at 7:54 so depending on how long it takes you guys to get to PCH, maybe you'll see me

    Have a great ride!!!

    Sounds fun! I'll be there!
    Women think they're so clever because they can fake an orgasm for the sake of a relationship, but men can fake a whole relationship for the sake of an orgasm.

    Sorry...Not gonna make it. I might do the Poway metric loop, though. As training, of course (and to set booby-traps)

    You're going to hide strippers along the course?

    Funny, I was just thinking the same thing the other day. No, haven't heard a peep.

    A strange request, I admit, but...

    Everyone who ends up driving to the start, would you please bring along your floor pump for me to try out? If you have multiple floor pumps, would you please bring all non-identical ones along?

    Jason, I have a Performance brand one. Can't remember which one though. I'll be glad to bring it if you'd like.

    Please do. I'm trying to figure out which floor pump to get because--oh dear, this is so embarassing, but someone's bound to mention it anyway, so I might as well say--I can't use my current floor pump with my new wheels and short stemmed tubes. Yeah, I can use longer stemmed tubes, but it looks so nice with the short stems. In the interim, I'm pumping up the tubes with my Topeak Road Morph.

    If I post there, then you'll come to our Sunday ride and drag a floor pump along?
