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).
