you just had to say the word beer in front of me.... count me as a possible.

suggested long route, Irvine Train Station to Solano Beach.

What time did you want to leave San Juan or San Clemente?
Any dates in your mind yet?

Dates: It's either gotta be this Sunday or July 12,13,19,20,26,27. Votes?

Anyone who wanted to start a longer route could come down from Irvine to SJC train station via Camino Capistrano and meet up with anyone riding from there then grab anyone else riding out of San Clem at the North Beach train station. That would give you an extra 20 miles. I have no idea when to start, but it usually takes me 2 hours to ride from Irvine to San Clem (30miles).
Let's say we take the medium route from there, so lunch in Solana Beach.

Someone help me out with a time break-down for this. Remember the pace should be relaxed and welcoming for us newbies. What time should we leave South County to get to Solana between 11:30 and 1:30 ish??

I'd say to plan it in July... and maybe we can talk to Amtrak ahead of the event to make sure they have a railcar for all our bikes this time!

San Juan Capistrano would work best because I have only seen Amtrak running when I have done this ride, not the Metro. Amtrak does not stop in San Clemente...

think about ~15MPH pace as that is fairly newbie friendly, and that means about 1 hour from Irvine to San Juan Capistrano (13 miles), 3 hours to Carlsbad (37 miles), 1 1/2 hours to regroup and eat lunch, then an additional hour to Solano Beach (13 miles).

Total time: ~6.5 hours
Total mileage: 63 (Irvine to Solana Beach)
Total Beer Consumption at 2 seperate Pizza Ports and the Amtrak home: ~5 pints

It's about 35 miles from SONGS to Pizza Port so if you have a 15 MPH pace, it would be 2 hours and 20 minutes from there. Add 20 minutes or so if you start at the beginning of the beach bike path at, I think, Christianitos.

You have to factor in the ratio of beer / avg mph in to the total time.

I don't know about you but for me as my beer consumption increases my speed decreases.



I might be interested in this. It's in my neck of the woods. I took a 6 month break from riding and have just started back at it so I am completely out of shape so this ride would be just about my speed.

No, the Sharkbite Red hails from San Clemente Port. I'm an IPA man myself. San Clem just introduced the Killer Dana Double IPA which is even better than the Doheny Double.

Amtrak stops once or twice in the evening at the San Clem Pier on weekends, but I agree that SJC is the best gathering place for Southlanders.

This is a great idea, So:

Long riders can start at the Irvine train station (where Amtrak is guaranteed to stop later)(63mi total)
Short riders can pick it up in San Juan Capistrano train station or San Clemente train station (50mi./43mi. total)

Lunch in Carlsbad, and final beers in Solana Beach before Amtrak home. Now for a date....To be continued.

Date: Let's go democratic...PM me with a preferred weekend (and day) in July, except for the first one right after the 4th. I'll leave voting open throughout the week. and post updates on the most likely. That way, if you can flex a little you can change your vote; making a certain date even more likely. Once it looks pretty certain we'll just call the day, set it in stone, and I'll ride it alone if no one can make it

Don't worry about the pace. No one is getting dropped. I'll probably be at the back makin' sure

I just skimmed through this thread real quick. But, I live within walking distance of the solana beach pp. Just an FYI, the train station is about 500 feet from the solana beach pp. Sorry if thats a repost.

I'm interested. Pizza port is amazing! I'm in Irvine until this weekend, then in San Diego all summer. I can do it any weekend except for the weekend of July 19th.

Important update: The leading dates so far are July 12th and 26th. Seems like everyone has a preference for Saturdays. If you want to re-cast your vote we can narrow it down to one of those days.

The 19th and 20th are officially off the list. I forgot the San Clemente Ocean Festival (www.oceanfestival.org/schedule.html) is going on then, and I'm considering doing a Triathlon (Or, just watching all the other cool events).

I watched the Celtics/Lakers game at the Port last night. The bartender, Breezy, seemed to think this ride was an excellent idea. She said the Carlsbad location is awesome, so it's good we're doing lunch there.
