Leaving the parking lot we will turn left on W Life Dr./W Memory Lane, crossing Bristol (with the traffic light) to Flower and turning right. Turn left onto Riverside Dr. and right onto Park Blvd. Continue on Park to Bonnie Brae then to Broadway and turn left to Main Place Dr. Ride over the FWY and at the bottom of the overpass, immediately turn right onto the Santiago Creek Trail. We will regroup at this point to make sure everyone made the turn. We will ride the Santiago River Trail to Villa Park but if this is your first time riding this trail, Please STAY BEHIND the leader, as there are many branches onto and off of the bike trail. We will keep the pace slow and easy so everyone should be able to keep in sight of the riders ahead of them. 10-12 mph. There will be stops occasionally to ensure no one gets dropped. At the end of the bike trail we will turn left onto Villa Park Rd. and go up a moderate hill to Lemon St where we turn right to Taft Ave.
We will take a short rest stop at this point.
We will then ride TAFT, a long downhill, to go under the 55 FWY, turning left at Tustin Street for a short block, then right on Taft. We will continue on Taft, crossing the SART and the river, and into the golf center parking lot to the Anaheim Coves Trail. Stay on the trail to it's end at Lincoln, turn right and cross the river to the SART, then head down the SART and back to the starting point. 20 miles
