Pre-Thanksgiving Bike Ride Planned

posted: October 27th, 2011 05:25 am | 6Comments


The Corona del Mar-based cycling advocacy group bikeNewportBeach has announced a second annual pre-Thanksgiving ride.

“This ride is a perfect way to spend the morning — without the roar of automobiles in your ears you’ll have time to talk and relax as we peddle through Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Garden Grove, Orange and Anaheim,” organizers said in an announcement. “You won’t believe how quickly time passes as we take this bike highway into central Orange County.”

“Last year’s ride gave each of us an excuse to eat a little more,” said Frank Peters, one of the bikeNewportBeach founders. “We were burning calories galore. Besides the exercise, the camaraderie of the group will warm you through and through, no matter what the weather.”

Riders should meet at the Newport Pier at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 23. The ride is about 30 miles, round trip, and will end at the Newport Pier about 1 p.m.

The mostly flat route will take riders along the Santa Ana River Trail, which goes off-road all the way to Anaheim Stadium and the Honda Center. Peters said the route is peaceful and quiet enough to carry on conversations with other riders.

“I want to do this ride again to relive that experience,” he said.

Organizers encourage cyclists to bring sunscreen and money for a snack.

30 miles in 5 hours?!? Will you guys be walking your bikes? Can't make it, gotta watch the Lions hand the Packers their first loss of the season.
