Mid-Week Back Bay Ride

 

THIS RIDE HAS BEEN MODIFIED TO ADD A FEW MILES.  IT WILL NOW START AT BILL BARBER PARK AND HEAD DOWN THE SDCT TO THE BACK BAY.  THE ROUTE MAP HAS BEEN REPLACED, HOWEVER, IF YOU PREFER TO RIDE JUST THE 10 MILE BACK BAY LOOP YOU CAN STILL USE THE MAP AND ZOOM IN ON THE SECTIONS YOU WANT.

 

 

 

 

This 18-mile ride circles the beautiful Upper Newport Back Bay. We will start out from the parking lot at the Irvine Civic Center/Bill Barber Park, and ride down the SDCT to the bay.  The route circles around the beautiful Back Bay on a paved bike trail, with a few blocks on the streets through a residential neighborhood.  There will be a couple of short, moderate climbs requiring your lower gears.

Have a light jacket as there is often a breeze in the late afternoon.  And as always, bring water, your helmet, and a spare inner tube.  It would be a good idea to have both a head light and tail light, although there is ample daylight to do the ride safely.

Post ride dinner to be decided by those who ride!  Check out the area (via google maps) and see what's nearby that strikes your fancy!   When it starts getting darker earlier we'll move the start time back in half hour increments.

    A new experience, riding after dark. Can really appreciate those super powerful light systems now! The 4 of us were able to cover the 18 miles in an hour and a half, total time. New member Brenda kept the pace easily while still getting used to her new road bike!

    We'll be meeting at the same location as the RCA group, who will be hitting the trail at 6:15. They do a longer ride down to CDM and require lights on the return, so be sure you're with the right group! Anna and I will be in the red Chevy Avalanche truck. Also, this will be the last auto-posted, no-host Wed night ride.
