65 mile and 30 mile route needed in Orange County (California) for Fall charity ride

Thousands of cyclists will take to the streets this summer and fall as the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation launches a new cycling tour in more than two dozen cities nationwide to support research to find new therapies and a cure for cystic fibrosis.

We are looking for a safe, challenging, fun and scenic route (65 miles and 30 miles) in Orange County (California) and any input from members of the forum would be appreciated. You can post online or send an offline message to me at ggreen@cff.org.

Have a terrific week.

Do you have a start/stop location. I assume where the rides stage would be important....

It would also be helpful to know the number of riders you expect to participate. One of your challenges might be to find a start/stop location with sufficient parking.

Hey given you will be riding your bike to the start, wouldn't you like to know where that is?

Orange County is a big place... holding organized rides is a big logistic especially with the cities involved and getting permits. It would be nice to know if the start is in south OC vs. North OC...

Sounds like a description of a troll or one of those homeless under the bridge at the SART.

I actually agree with this one. I absolutely REFUSE to put my bike in a car and drive somewhere to ride it. Now if it's a vacation, a couple hundred miles away, or something like that then sure. But to drive 12 miles from Irvine to Newport to start riding? No thanks. I'll bike there and do the ride and bike home.

Seems counter-productive to drive a bike somewhere locally.

You're missing that it's a charity ride...and a large, national charity. These things are generally well publicized and people will drive in from longer distances.

I'm personally not a fan of large organized rides but there are obviously a lot of people who enjoy them and if the money goes to a good charity, why knock it. Good parking generally means more people, and more people means more donations.

Are you an individual trying to arrange this event? Try checking with the cystic fibrosis group to see if they already hold events like this in the OC area, and possilby have a management company on board that'll already do this if its feasable. I'd think if there was a possibility of doing it, it would ahve already been done, especially with OC's great winter weather Orange County is an urban area, and has lots of these big events all year round.

As for the 'lone wolf' comments - there are so many charity events around (bicycling, running, etc), all year long, that I just don't do them anymore either. I just contribute directly to a few charities each year. Call it "compassion fatigue".

Careful there, you might get labeled as an anti-social...

I do volunteer work for different charities because I am anti-social when it comes to club rah-rah. Serving the less fortunate keeps me around a better class of people.
