BIKE OCEAN TRAILS – MEMORIAL DAY - RENTALS AVAIL - PICNIC - FUN SOCIAL EXERCISE

05/30 Monday Memorial Day and Ocean Trails Bike Tour - 10:00 Start

A Special Ride in recognition of Memorial Day and more American Flags you may have ever seen in one day! This will include 1,776 flags at the Field of Honor at Castaway Park. https://exchangeclubofnewportharbor.com/field-of-honor/
And then Memorial Park in Corona del Mar. Great for first timers, shy people, and expert riders. Are you ready for a beautiful fun day? We have scheduled stops along the way to ‘Group Up’ and hydrate. Any kind of bike or rent one.

If this seems too challenging or uncertain – just come and do the first part. This is how the ride is designed. The point is to get out and show up for very social exercise in the beauty of where we live. (Bike Rentals – see end of post – very easy – Liam is open memorial Day!)

A MICRODOSING LIFE RIDE.
If you are in a hurry to get somewhere – this is not the ride for you because the journey IS the destination. Social exercise

HISTORY OF OCEAN BIKE TOURS
We have led over 250 bike tours over recent years on bike paths, side roads and paved trails (No PCH) along the ocean from Laguna Beach to the Queen Mary. Meet new friends, like-minded people, exercise and enjoy the beauty of where we live. Please read the entire post.

PARKING
If you have your own bike there is free, safe and easy parking at the start. It is a dead-end street.

SELF REGULATED FUN
We ride as a safe, supportive group for casual exercise in well-organized rides and everyone is Self-Responsible. You should have a basic level of fitness and show up with a bike in good working order or rent a bike. You are responsible for You. Helmets recommended.
