Irvine Crazy 8 Loop

Meetup at Bonita Creek Park and head out to Alton and hang a left at Irvine Bl for a nice run down to Culver where we will take a break at Starbucks or Brueggers Bagels on the Northwest Corner of Irvine Bl & Culver and that would be about the halfway mark of the ride. Then going all the way down Culver to Newport Coast for a nice mild climb about a 6% grader and then a nice cool breeze coasting down the hill to PCH and over to little Corona Beach for a great scenic view and photo op. Then head out Marguerite to San Miguel for a very nice down-hill finish on Ford Rd turning into East Bluff Rd. and runs right into Bonita Park and our cars.
Nice 37 mile ride ending near the cool Ocean with a great view. Hope you all can make it. Happy Cycling, Robert

    Great bunch of strong riders today. The "A Team" was here. The weather was nice and was just starting to warm up as we were ending. The route was awesome as I had hoped with nice run down Irvine Bl., stopping at Bruegger's Bagels for a delicous Blueberry Muffin, then a nice cruise down Culver to get ready for the climb up Newport Coast rewarded by the awesome downhill to PCH and the cool breezes coming off the Ocean, and then a photo op at little Corona Beach. See those pictures.
    Thanks to all of our riders today for a very fun ride. You all were great. Happy Cycling!

    I'll be out of action until Aug. 9. Now is a fasting month of Ramadan for us, Muslims. If anyone wants to do a midnight ride (after 10 pm), let me know.

    Not sure I'll have the gas. I'm doing a hilly 40-miler on Friday. I want to try it, though!

      Yes, you can do it. You are young and strong. Just have a carbo load dinner Fri. Eve, 10 hours sleep and a good breakfast & you will be fine. Besides I don't ride fast and I don't ride slow, I ride halfast. Smile! See you there.
