Cooks Corner!!!!

Meet at Alieso Creek Park and ride up to Cooks Corner, approx. 15 miles, mostly on a paved bike trail with a very short stretch on the street. Slight uphill on the way out, with the last 2-3 miles very much uphill! We'll kick back for some refreshments, and then return along the same route, only downhill all the way! Although it's not steep, it's easy to get your speed up, so take care and pay attention.
BE SURE TO GIVE YOUR BIKE A CHECK UP AND MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS WORKING PROPERLY. HAVE AT LEAST 1 SPARE TUBE WITH YOU. If you are not lucky enough to find off street parking, the dirt lot carries a $3 fee. The machine accepts currency, coins, or credit card. MeetUp location and route map:

    the ride was good. i came with the group that rode in from Irvine. When we made it to the starting point I tipped over and took out a BIG chunk of my flesh around the lower portion of me knee.

    This was my first ride. I enjoyed the ride very much. It was a little hard for my first ride, but the group watched out for me during the whole ride. I'll be on the next ride for sure.

    great ride.. .bummer about the flat, knee injury, Jim's broken trike seat, and a few other minor mishaps that were on this ride. But as always this was a great route. Fun time at Cooks Corner.

    Great day to ride. Both the long and the short crews enjoyed the trek to Cooks Corner from Aliseo Creek Park. Must have been my imagination, but it seemed that the hills have grown steeper! One spill that resulted in a bloodied knee, and a flat tire were the only mishaps up to CC. The short group made it back to Aliseo Creek unscathed.
