This is a very flat, approx. 25 mile route, along bike laned highways and paved bicycle trails. We leave Trader Joes and head to Warner, down Warner to PCH and turn right. Stay on PCH through Seal Beach to the San Gabriel River Trail (SGRT). Onto the SGRT north, past the 405 freeway, and across the bridge. Once we reach El Dorado Park we'll go around it counter clockwise, then do the same thing on the upper end of the park.
We'll take a break in north end of the park by the lake, then follow the paths back down the west side of the park, through the underpass and continue through the park until we reach the SGRT again, then head south towards the ocean, crossing back over the bridge to the east side of the SGR. As we go under PCH it's important to slow down as there will be a sharp U-turn at the top of the other side. Turn right onto PCH and continue through Seal Beach, past the Naval Weapons Station, and past the Surfside Colony. Turn right at Anderson (at the water tower), and onto South Pacific through Sunset Beach to Warner. A left on Warner, across PCH and back to Algonquin and TJ's.
Restrooms are available in TJ's at the start, and throughout El Dorado Park. On the return leg there are several restrooms in Sunset Beach, and one at the end near Warner Avenue.
