Victoria Park Lane Loop - One of the Inland Empire's most beautiful streets!
This is about a 20-mile loop (or more) that starts and ends near beautiful Victoria Park Lane. It journies through the tunnel, onto Baseline, up Archibald or Campus (cyclists choice), back to the tunnel, around Victoria Gardens, stopping for a treat, then return. Each week we have varied the ride to mix it up just a little. We will stop for Robeks' smoothies and/or snacks near the end so bring some money if you'd like to indulge in a little treat.
Emphasis: social and exercise
Type of bike: road bike or hybrid.
Ride Difficulty Rating: This is not a "newbie" ride. Advanced Beginner-Moderate: 18-25+ miles in length (depending on group), 12-20 mph on straight paths (we'll wait at any turn if behind), but 6-12 mph on incline :), (moderate climbing - less than 1,000 ft.).
PLEASE NOTE: The time of the ride shown above is the actual departure time. Please allow time for bicycle assembly and inspection, filling of water bottles, inflating tires, etc. prior to departure.

◦Should ride single file on a busy or narrow street.
◦Must make left and right turns in the same way that drivers do, using the same turn lanes.
◦Must signal all their intentions to motorists and bicyclists near them.
