Should have nice cool weather this weekend so we are going to have a really long ride from Quail Hill all the way to the far end of El Moro (Crystal Cove State Park). Several of us have done each section of this but have never done them all in the same ride. There might be a little bit of exploring (a.k.a. getting lost.)
Meet at 9:00. We will roll out at 9:15.
This is an intermediate ride because of distance and because we will be doing lots of climbing, however will will go slower than the typical intermediate ride. We will ride for 2 hours and then take a 1/2 hour snack break overlooking the ocean. Then we will spend another 2 hours coming back on a different route. This will be a LONG ride, probably 25 miles total with 4 hours of actual riding time.
Please bring a mountain bike, HELMET, plenty of water, sunscreen, and snacks.
To get there take the 405 to Sand Canyon/Shady Canyon and go south. Go a few yards after the turning circle and the parking lot will be on your left. The address ,35 Shady Canyon Drive, will be on a large sign. (There are several parking lots on both sides of the street. Please park at 35 Shady Canyon). Do not follow your GPS or you will zoom past the parking lot and end up at a gated community. You cannot get there from Culver drive because of a housing development that blocks the road. Some GPS devices don't know this.
Afterwards there is an optional lunch at a nearby restaurant.
If you have any questions please post a comment and someone will respond.
