Winding Roads Of Orange County

Sunday, November 26, 2017

If you ate too much on Thanksgiving and have been indulging in leftovers the last two days, you might feel the need to work off some of those extra calories. Why not join your fellow club members and work them off together. Today’s routes are perfect. The climbing is mostly long gentle grades so you won’t be working too hard, but you will still burn plenty of calories. All three routes stay together for the first 17 miles, so you can wait and see just how many calories you want to burn off today before deciding which route you want to finish today. The long and medium are similar but the long adds a loop (and a hill) in the middle before rejoining the Medium. The short makes its own way back to the start. The riding is pleasant. The roads of Orange County really are winding. Except for the ending stretch on Irvine Blvd which is as straight as an arrow for many miles, I don’t think you ever travel much more than half a mile without at least curving a little. I think this makes for a more interesting ride rather than simply staring ahead into an endless straightaway. So come on down and wind around with us today and burn off some of that extra turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. START:  PINE TREE PARK in TUSTIN.  From Santa Ana Frwy (I-5) in Tustin, off and east on Redhill, L- Bryan one block to park. (Long 61 mi and 3000 ft, Medium 53 mi and 3000 ft, Short 32 mi and 800 ft)
