Monrovia Cycling is journeying to beautiful Orange County, California on Saturday, March 27, 2010.
The ride will be a beautiful tour through some of the best canyons and communities in Orange County and the obligatory trip to the beach—hey, it’s the OC! The ride will begin and conclude at the Amtrak Station @ Anaheim Stadium (2150 East Katella Avenue Anaheim, CA 92806). We are planning to start the ride at 7:00am.
PLEASE RSVP! All are welcome; invite a friend! Please let me know if you have any questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
RIDE DETAILS (approximately 69 miles, 2855ft of climbing. Moderate)
We will head east from Anaheim Stadium and pick-up Santiago Canyon. Some early climbing will be offset by the beautiful views and bike friendly road. A left-turn at the historic Cook’s Corner Biker Bar (other type of bike) will take us to arguably the most beautiful canyon in Orange County; Live Oak Canyon—a hidden gem (see picture). We will then go through the communities of Rancho Santa Margarita, Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, and Irvine; stopping at Starbucks in Irvine. Afterwards, we will travel to Newport Beach via UCI and the stunning vistas of Newport’s Back Bay. We will return to Anaheim via the Santa Ana River Trail, a phenomenal bike path (wish LA’s bike path were as cared for as the SART).
