This ride will be around 20 miles. The ride is designed for advance beginners riders and above. For those riders wanting lunch, we will go across the street to Pepito's for some very fine Mexican Food.

We will start at the Big Office Bldg. AKA "BOB".

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

Make sure your bike and you are ready to go as we will start right at 8:30 am. and you will be left behind if you are not ready.

Bring Water, your extra tube and HELMET. You may be left behind if you show up with tires needing pumping.

    Great weather + great people = great ride! Cool and cloudy for the most part kept things comfortable. Sun poked through and it started warming a bit towards the end, but didn't get too hot -- maybe the slight headwind helped out some! No mechanical issues or flats, but one spill, thankfully w/o injury! 8/9 came out to ride; new guy Jim was a no-show, and former member David showed up but didn't ride with the group. Noticed a growing monument of some sort along the SART just upstream from Katella -- it seems to get bigger every time I go by. Someone is taking good care of it.

    Nice cool weather at the start, sun came out towards the end of the ride. Had a good time riding with some of the usual suspects until I crashed into the fence at Taft & the SART. My bike survived it, I survived it, all is well. Ready to ride another day. Thanks to the Three Amigos for helping me up.

    Through Morrison Park ? If we ride the snake to the lake, that will add 7 miles.

      Maybe Dean the Big BOB Boss Organizer can step in here & sort through this mess. Then again, he might say "Don't think about it, just keep peddling".

    This should be a fun ride where you ride thru some parks.

    Had several biopsies taken and the Dr. want to review them before I do anymore biking. So off the bike until sometime next week.
