perfect 2hr ride in Newport Beach?

I'll be in Newport Beach early Sat. I'm staying at a hotel right at Jamboree and PCH. Any suggestions for a good 25 to 35 mile route would be appreciated..

Take PCH South to Newport Coast Drive. Turn Left, go up Newport Coast and back down the other side to Bonita Canyon Blvd. Take Bonita Canyon to Shady Hill - Shady Hill to Turtle Rock turn right to Ridgecrest turn right at the bottom on Jeffrey/University turn left. Take University just past Harvard and connect again to the San Diego Creek Trail. If you can d this in less than 2 hours, then turn right on the creek trail travel North for aways and turn back around and head back to Jamboree. If the weather's nice should be a great ride.

just over 1 mile and almost 500 feet of gain....

when you get to the top, look for two streets heading to the south (Vista Ridge and Ridge Park) and head up one of them (it is a loop)

Actually it's 1.7 miles with 5.7% avg. to the top and another .5 mile (down hill) to Vista Ridge turn right and climb up another 1.3 miles (there is a long flat section so most of the climbing is in the first half mile)with 6% avg. to the top with max 11%. Turn left on Ridge Park Rd. for a screamin down hill, I usually hit about 50mph on that one. Turn right on Newport Coast drive.

Actually these guys are mean... just ride up Newport Coast and go over the back down to Bonita Canyon. If you can somehow find the Shady Ridge Bike Trail off Shady Hill, take that through the Shady Ridge private developement and it take you down to Sand Canyon. Take a right at Quail Hill. Iffin you are so inclined you can follow the signs and turn right onto Laguna Canyon Rd and take that back down to PCH (actuallly we usually turn up Cliff Drive and take the back way but too difficult to explain now). Turn right onto PCH and have a nice long rolly ride back up to Jamboree.

If you check the BCI website - look for rides, check Sunday rides you might be able to locate a route slip to your liking. I'll go check and see if something is there you can do.

Oh getting back to the above route. Instead of Laguna Canyon South turn left (actually you go around a traffic circle) on Laguna and take that to Alton, take Alton all the way back to teh San Diego Creek Trail get on it and go South towards the beach.

OK go to bikeirvine.org. Look for RIDES, Sunday rides and check out he route slips for these dates:

Feb 11, March 25 and April 29. You will have to modify it for where you start so these should work for ya.

I love to climb, but I do like to know what I'm getting myself into. Since I only have about two hours, your route sounds great. I familiar with the area, so I know that it is a great place to ride. I just haven't had the chance yet... Thanks for all the help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll most likely be doing BB with Jaguar on Saturday 8am.
After a loop I was going to continue up to University to the 133, down to PCH, then back to Jamboree.


I'm going to copy Brandy's ride from lst week, but start at BB.

I'm guessing it's around 35-4o miles.

edit; Duh, I missed the "I only have 2hrs" part.

If you'd like to go, we are meeting at BB at 8am.
Where the BB trail meets up with the Mt to Sea trail.
That's the bridge going over the creak.
No, maybe, or, Ya I'm goin....
