An easy 23+ mile beach cruise along Huntington and Bolsa Chica beaches. A virtually flat route with all but 1/2 mile on bike trails. This ride is designed to be a very casual cruise along the beach, so enjoy the views and ocean air!
Pedals turn at 8:30 sharp, so be prompt or ready to catch up!

We'll be heading down the SART and taking the detour at Hamilton to the East side and continue to PCH. On the return leg we'll stay on the beach trail down to Orange in Newport Beach to cross PCH and head back to the SART. We'll again take the detour at Hamilton back to the west side, and continue up to our starting point.
Anyone wanting to add a couple of miles and is comfortable riding on bike-laned streets can ride up Warner to Graham, turn right to Slater, left on Slater to the SART, then down the SART to Atlanta. The scenery will be totally different (some might even say lacking), but you should be able to keep a slightly faster pace. It will add only 2 miles to the total as it's just under 13 miles from Warner.
After the ride we can grab a bite at Lou's Red Oak BBQ, just down the street at Brookhurst and Hamilton (S/W corner).

Please remember: Check your bike and be ready to go before ride time, and don't forget your helmet, spare tube, and water bottle
