Another Wednesday – Another Location: Santiago Oaks Regional Park! This time again something for everyone, bring your friends and enjoy an extremely easy ride. Here is link to an updated map:
When: Wednesday 05/02, Roll off 6:00pm after a short introduction to safety rules
Meeting point: 5:45pm in the parking lot in front of the Albertsons Store (Jamboree & Santiago Canyon Road). For your GPS: 8440 East Chapman Ave, Orange, CA 92869
Beginner / Novice Riders
We start on the left Bike Trail at Jamboree Road and enter the regional park at Windy Ridge Road. Basically we stay in the valley and make several loops on different trails, some fire road , some single trail, but all flat and no technical skill required. This is going to be great fun for the entire family and the ride will take about 60 minutes before we return to the parking lot.
Intermediate Riders / Social Pace
We also start at Windy Ridge Road. This will be the only fire road, everything else is going to be fantastic single trails. You get immediately a taste on the Road Runner Loop and it will be also the only flat part of our course but perfect as a warm up. Then we climb Chutes B Trail to the Barham Ridge. You have earned some fun, so we fly down cactus canyon. You guessed right, we have to climb again, so Coachwhip will get your heart rate going. Back on Barham Ridge, if time permits comes my favorite part, Deer Loop, a fun fresh maintained single trail. Otherwise from Barham Ridge we will get back to the Chutes Trails, where we are going to split. For the brave : Going down Chutes Trail A is very technical. For Everyone else Chutes Trail B. Last but not least we finish together with the Roadrunner Loop and back to the parking lot.
The next planned rides:
05/09 Santiago Truck Trail (Luge)
05/16 Ride of Silence (http://www.sellin.com/silence/)
As always, looking forward for a great ride and lots of fun !
