She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed has informed me that we are to spend Thanksgiving with her sister in Glendale. So, on turkey day, she intends to load our three kids into the family car and head north, spend the night, and return on Sunday.
I initially was less than enthusiastic about the plan. Then I had an epiphany . . . I would ride to Glendale, and ride home on Friday. The ride is a little shy of 150 miles, which I normally wouldn't mind, but if I leave on Thursday, I will never make it in time for dinner. So, I have decided to ride about a hundred miles to Newport Beach on the day before Thanksgiving, and then head to Glendale the next day. Does anybody know of a decent and relatively inexpensive motel / hotel in Newport?
Also . . . heading north through LA, I seem to recall a bike route that follows a concrete river channel, but I can't find anything about it on Bikely. Anyone have any experience with this?
