Sun 9/23 @ 10AM – Irvine to Balboa + Backbay Loop

This beginner level ride combines a couple of crowd favorites, the usual Irvine to Balboa pier route we do plus we’ll add in the west side of the Newport Back bay to add a little distance. Total distance is going to be about 24 miles round trip on mostly flat bike paths and some street riding. We’ll stop in Balboa for some food & drinks. The whole trip usually takes us 3-4 hours including the stop in Balboa.

Here’s the Newport Back Bay portion of the ride:

Meet in the Boomer’s parking lot near the bike path.

P.S. The reason we start so late is that if we were to leave any earlier, nothing would be open in Balboa.

P.S.S. Bring a swim suit if you feel like going for a swim after the ride. I have a four pools to choose from at my apartments.
