Title: OC night ride - Friday July 16, at 10:00 pm
Post by: Jerome Daoust on 07/14/10 08:47PM
WHEN: Friday July 16, at 10:00 pm (KSU time, so arrive before)
MEET: Chevron at the corner of Red Hill & MacArthur (see map link below)
ROUTE: See map below
SKILL LEVEL: Noobie, Intermediate, Expert*

This ride has been re-scheduled for tomorrow (Friday) same departure time (10pm).

Looking for something to do, to burn those calories absorbed at Original Mike's? Easy to find after OM: Ride South on Main street, left turn on MacArthur, and join others at Red Hill.
It will be a warm night, so no need for the usual under-layers. Light traffic will allow for a good pace. The bugs in Santiago canyon will already be in bed by the time we ride through.

Map of the route:

60 miles and about 1 hour 10 min of riding.

Point A: Start and gas station: Chevron at the corner of Red Hill & MacArthur.
   Follow MacArthur Blvd to San Joaquin Hills rd, then Newport Coast Dr to PCH.
Point B: Laguna Beach, but no stopping.
Point C: Cook's corner, but no stopping.
Point D: Denny's close to the 5 Fwy and Red Hill. Stop for a late snack. Departure point for some.
Point E: End at gas station: Mobil at the corner of Main & MacArthur.

************* Skill Levels Defined:
Noobie -You have been riding your motorcycle for at least 3 months (hopefully more) and have confidence that you can ride around streets without any issues eg. stopping at stop lights, not stalling the bike, not falling over etc, making u-turns, etc.
Intermediate - You have been riding for at least 6 months (hopefully more) and feel comfortable enough to handle twisty roads as found in local canyons. You are mature enough to understand going slow is okay and not to try and keep up with riders that are faster than you as it will result in a crash.
Expert - You have been riding for years and hopefully been riding with the members going on the ride long enough to know how they ride.

If we're still there at 10 and my girls up for it we'll join.  We always ride after OGM, but usually shoot out before 10pm

Hi King, nice to hear from you.
Fair chance I will be doing this again next week. Maybe next Thursday, and with short (1 day or so) notice, so keep an eye on the calendar.

Because you've been on previous rides with me, I think you will enjoy knowing how this one compares...
This one eliminates part of the slow/traffic drive on PCH (between Laguna Beach and Dana Point) and focuses more on "proper riding" by adding Santiago canyon. About the same overall duration, but with more time spent "at speed".
In preparation, I've already did this exact new route twice, and I like it better. And late night is much better, shaving 15-20 minutes off the route.

My guess is that we rode through there around 10:40 pm.

A total of 9 riders were on this ride.

Lots of fun meeting new riders and kudos to Dimitri for keeping up on his dual-purpose bike.

I got my fix.
