Glad to hear you're going to be able to join us, and starting at the ARTIC station makes most sense.

Anybody else going to join us? cough, cough @jsigone, cough.
@CommuteCommando - what's your status? Being that you're coming by train, I'd like to know if we should be aware in case there are train delays. The last thing I want to do is roll out thinking you're not coming but find out later it was because the train was 5 minutes late!

I don't think I can ride 120 miles out and back...I can barely do that in a MONTH these days....too much running to be like @IBOHUNT

I may show up for pizza and beer text me when you get to top of Camp Pendleton

Anyone interested in doing a quick 30 before the start (up and back on SART) Turn around between the park and Carl jr. We would need to start around 7:15 or so.

I would possibly. May do that and ride a part with the group and head back. Too long of an day for me to do the entire thing as I have other commitments in the evening.

If we're lucky, we'll get to see another episode of "Days of our Hobo Lives" in Laguna Beach. About 8 cops, 6 cruisers with lights a-flashin', a shirtless homeless guy on the grass being restrained and his sweet, sweet delilah hollerin' "I didn't mean for this to happen" and his reply... so plaintive... "It's too late for that now Lorraine"

Of course, one of the police SUVs almost flattened us on the way to that riveting public emergency.

Bear at Pizza Port is on me Genaro. You can't get it at the Shwak since you still have to ride home.

Is there anyone committed to the ride that knows the route really well, or should I print out route slips? Last time, we took a few extra detours, which is fun, but I don't want anyone looking at me as the resident expert just because I enjoy being an instigator. If you follow me we may end up in Rio Vista. And on the last PP70, my Garmin 500 did an excellent job of telling me where we should have turned...after we passed it.

I think it's a great idea for the strongest riders to go put in some extra miles. Maybe then the rest of us will have a chance to not be as slow (relatively speaking). If you're thinking of doing an extra 30 miles, and leaving an hour before the 70 mile ride leaves the lot, that means that you plan on doing that extra 30 in.....uh.....carry the 1......an hour? If nobody minds, I would suggest that the 70 mile riders still roll at 8:15, even if you're not back yet, planning that you'll catch us. If by chance we get to the end of the SART, we'll hang out and regroup there. Does that sound like a valid plan for everyone?

Or am I way off base and when you say a "quick 30", you really mean a blazing fast 30 mph sprint? Hey, I wouldn't put it past you guys!

I seldom have any real idea of where I'm going, and that's when riding locally. Out on the coast, I have no idea whatsoever. But we just need to keep the ocean on the right and we'll get there, right? What's a few extra miles when we get lost? I missed a turn this morning and turned a 25 miler into 40. <shrug> It happens.

The only tricky part is really in Laguna, the rest is mostly keep the ocean on your right.

I don't know what we got wrong in Laguna last time, but we did.

When all else fails, Google Maps. I just pipe it from the phone through my Boombot. It's equal parts loud, annoying, and embarrassing. TURN LEFT IN 200 FEET! And everyone in earshot knows I'm lost.

well I hope to start between 7-7:15 and hold an average around 22. I don't need a full 30 just something closer to a century.

Lemme tell ya, that first hour is gonna be rough. I haven't been able to get on the road before 8am this week, because that early morning is well past brisk. Too cold for my California bones. The temp goes up 20 in two hours. I thought for just the most brief moment about starting from home and having the wife meet me at the stadium, but the idea of rolling out into 45 and blasting on the SART in that... ugh.

Hey, it's getting warmer! Yesterday it was 45 at my house at 0600, today it is 49! Maybe the trend will continue!

I thought of riding to ARTIC from my house (Lake Forest) and then getting off the train in Irvine on the return - it's 19 miles and mostly flat/downhill. Sort of ruled it out because of the cold, but my car went tango uniform last night, probably needs a new power steering pump (leaking and shorting out the alternator is my diagnosis). Part may not be readily available today for a 23 year old car, so I might be back to riding there! With the ride there and back from Irvine, I'd end up with 94 miles.

We did a ride up to the village last year and it was unseasonably cold at the start... foggy and overcast, I don't think it got above 45 degrees until we got to the last hill before the village! Naturally, I didn't bring a single thing warmer than a short sleeve jersey. It's OK when you're working hard on the hill but GRR and the few downhill bits were chilly.

45 would be a lot harder to tolerate on SART.

Huntington Beach shows a low of 55. Maybe @jimincalif can chime in with a more detailed prediction for us. He seems to know stuff about this stuff.

Try this little gadget out - it's handy for seeing temperature trends over a larger geographical area. (scroll forward on the time line to see Sunday)

National Weather Service - Graphical Forecast

Looks like we're looking at high 60s or so, which will be extremely nice.

Quick question, are you guys planning on bringing a back pack with clothes to change into after we are done?

Saturday night into Sunday morning it is still supposed to be clear with a slight offshore flow overnight, so this leads to lower lows without an insulating cloud layer. But we are on a warming trend. Yesterday morning was 45 at my house, today 49, at 0600, and it should be warmer tomorrow.

Anaheim is predicted to have a low of 52 at 0600 Sunday morning, up to 55 at 0700 and 61 by the time we roll. So overall temps are looking pretty darn nice for the ride. When it is 55 and sunny I will typically roll with shorts, jersey and lightweight arm warmers and regular open finger cycling gloves, that's about it.

I wasn't planning on bringing a change of clothing. I'm riding my road bike with no storage and I really dislike riding with backpacks. What's everyone else doing?

No change of clothes for me. I will probably have my arm warmers and maybe wind vest.

Agreed. I know I'd catch hell on the 41, but I'll change and shower as soon as I get home. I, too, dislike backpacks.
