    I had a great time on the ride. With 18 people showing up of different bike riding skill levels it was difficult to keep the group together so we split up into 4 groups. 7 people that rode down to the Newport peninsula together with me and had lunch. Then 5 of the 7 people with me continued our ride to Corona del Mar after crossing with the ferry to Balboa Island. Riding back was very windy. Thanks for coming on the ride today. You'll find all my rides on the Southern California Cycling Group at Please join our Meetup group too so you can join us on other rides again!
