2nd Annual Burrito Century, Sunday 12/16

Join us for the second annual BURRITO CENTURY. Sunday December 16, 2007.

Meet at Irvine Amtrak Station, 15215 Barranca Parkway, Irvine, CA 92618 at 6:30am. We roll at 7:00am sharp. Our destination is the San Diego Amtrak Station, 1050 Kettner Boulevard, San Diego, CA 92101. Approximately 102 miles.

This is a social, no drop ride. Undoubtedly, slower and faster groups will form. The key principle is looking out for your fellow BF riders.

Be sure to bring a valid picture ID. You absolutely need this for riding through Camp Pendelton.

This is an unsupported ride. Bring everything you need. Don't forget money for the train ride back. See Amtrak web page (www.amtrak.com) for fare information.

Check this thread for updates (route slip, rest stop locations, etc.) as Sunday approaches.

Rest/regroup stop #1. 7-11 Store, 1118 S. El Camino Real, San Clemente 92672. It's at the corner of El Camino Real and Avenida Pico. It may be slightly off course, as the course takes us through the San Clemente train station lot. But the 7-11 is pretty obvious, and you should have no trouble seeing it. It's about 34 miles into the route. For those of you that did the BF ride to Solana Beach this summer, it's the same 7-11 we stopped at.

Lunch Stop: Lunch will be in the area immediately surrounding the Solana Beach Amtrak Station. The address is 105 North Cedros Avenue, Solana Beach, CA 92075. It's quite visible from PCH, to your left (that is, the non-beach side of PCH) once you've ridden south on PCH for a while. There are many food options there. Burritos aren't mandatory. NOTE: This is about 75 miles into the ride. Be prepared -- you may want to eat something medium-substantial at the 2nd rest/regroup stop (and/or something between that stop and lunch).

Rest/regroup stop #3: La Jolla Village Square, at the corner of Villa La Jolla and Nobel Drive. Lots of options there.

POST-RIDE DINNER/DRINKS: El Cholo Restaurant, 5465 Alton Parkway, Irvine, CA 92604. Join us for some Mexican food, or just a drink. All are welcome (including non-riders).

UPDATE: ROUTE SLIP AT BOTTOM

So...I'm seriously considering a "Chips & Salsa" route.

Most of you know that the phrase, "We roll at 7:00am sharp." means "cjbruin is out" so here's an alternative.

Amtrak from Irvine Train Station to Oceanside or Solana Beach (yes, ride the train)
Ride to San Diego (lunch in Solana Beach with the Burrito group)

Oceanside option ~40 mi
Solana Beach option ~25 mi

Any other slackers out there want to join me? I may even be able to get Rose to tag along if we do the shorter option.

nah i don't plan on going too fast, since it's gonna be a long day and we'll have an earlier start time them the main group. You want to hop in the pace line with us? PM Frank for his addy. Plan is to roll at first light, so about 6:30 BURRRR. I should get to his place about 6 or so. Pending on legs, I'm going to ride with the group to either Solona Beach Train Station or go all the way to SD and take the train back to Oside.

Anyone interested can meet at my house a little before 6 or at the Oceanside Transit Station (195 South Tremont, Oceanside, CA 92054) a little after 6. The transit station is better for anyone returning from SD. There is plenty of free parking, restrooms and you will not have to ride back to my house after dark. If you decide to park in the parking structure there, and you use a roof rack, take the bike off first.

Matt, sorry for derailing your thread.

With the name "Burrito Century" there has been shockingly little mention of burritos. What burritos? Where?

Originally (last year), we had lunch at a Mexican place in Leucadia.

As was noted last year, burritos aren't mandatory (some people prefer not to eat something like that during a long ride, so last year we selected a lunch spot with many options). The name of the ride was mainly meant to pay homage to what is probably the world's most perfect food.

Then why isn't this called the donut ride?

I keep wanting to do this ride, but for the second straight year it looks like I will miss it. I have to go to the grandson's Christmas program at 10:30a. I'll be out riding through Camp Pendleton Saturday instead.

Meeting at Indolent's sounds like a plan to me. Now I just need to make sure I get myself a replacement tire iron before the ride... one of mine broke on my last ride.

I have 3 Performance ones. I can bring them along.

These days I'm just using the one in my multi-tool.
