I might be going to Orange County in a couple of weeks and I might bring my bike with me. No idea where I will be, but I might be near Laguna Niguel. Open to suggestions in this respect as well. Doing a 3-4 day vacation.
Any rides that are picturesque, fun, tough and not busy with cars? I love climbing, but perhaps something along the ocean is more scenic. Anywhere from 2-4 hours total (I am a decent rider, with above average speeds based on Strava, but nowhere near a racer).
