Well, AGAIN, weather forecast does not look very promising, but let’s keep our fingers and toes crossed. We certainly will let you know by email or on the team website, if the ride is canceled. So for now: The Wednesday ride, 04/25, we are at El Moro / Crystal Cove State Park. (www.crystalcovestatepark.com). Here is a link to a map of the park: http://www.crystalcovestatepark.com/mapdistances.html
When: Roll off 6:00pm after a short introduction to safety rules
Meeting point: 5:45pm at the top of the park, which is at the very end of Ridge Park Road, Newport Beach, CA 92657
Novice Rider / Social Pace
We immediately turn right and start with a fun and easy downhill, first “no name ridge” and then Mach One. At this point out true beginners and first timers will turn around and will make their way back. The rest of the group should by now be nicely warmed up and rested for the long but not steep “I think I Can” climb. Further the usual El Moro Ridge Road and then the fun-fun-fun “Missing link” and “Fence line” back to the gate. If time permits, we can throw in some little extra credits.
Be prepared, this is going to be a long ride! First the same like the other group but after mach one, you will ride on el moro canyon road closer to the coast and climb B.F.I. Then El Moro Ridge, Missing link, fence line,… if time permits, we will dive down again deer canyon and come up ticketron.
Next planned Rides:
05/02 Santiago Oaks / Irvine Regional Park
05/09 Santiago Truck Trail
As always, looking forward for a great ride and lots of fun ! Bring a second layer, we are very close to the sea and the wind will make it at least 10-15 degrees cooler !
