Commuting from John Wayne Airport to Disneyland on a Marlboro Folding Bike

This was my route:

Other than the Sheriff giving me a hard time in the airport, smooth sailing on the ride. Bristol was a little busy for a Sunday morning, but all-in-all, a great commute from the airport to the Marriott.

This was my bike and the prep for the flight:

I see you needed to stop at TWO In N Outs on the way. That's some quality cycling food right there.

Do tell about this pesky sheriff? What was he on about?

And congrats, that's way more effort than I would want to go through to assemble a folding bike.

LOL, good point. He missed out on The Habit, 5 Guys, Phat Burger and Tommy's though.

Saw one of the Fabulous Folding Fujis for sale a few months back. Unfortunately it was in trash condition.

Slick packing job. The Sheriffs are not known for a sense of humor.

Don't forget Micks Karma Burger and Umami Burger! Both so close to the airport, it's worth a stopover in OC just for a burger

Sheriff of rentacop? Around here the latter are notorious for being bike haters, and totally unaware that bikes are allowed to be anywhere cars are.

Your route was kind of daring. I would have gone south the the "moutain to sea" bike trail along back bay, then do a short run up PCH to SART, then cut across Angels stadium parking lot. Twice a long, but you're on a bike. It's all good.

Yep, berger and fries indeed! I wanted to know where the in-n-outs were in the area because I wanted a lunch break I would enjoy. Will keep the other places in mind for next time.

For sure sheriff, saw the car and the badge. And agree a bit of a daring route, but with Sunday traffic, I wasn't ever really afraid. Rush hour on a week day would be a completely other story, though.
