Long Beach Boogie

Sunday, May 27, 2018

It’s Memorial Day Weekend and that means the unofficial start of the summer. What better way to kick it off than by going to the beach. Well, maybe some other day because, despite the name of this ride and starting in Long Beach, we won’t actually see the beach today. Most of our day will be spent inland from Long Beach. The long and medium riders head up Coyote creek almost 10 miles all the way to Santa Fe Springs. The long then makes a long loop over to Brea and around back to Santa Fe Springs. This includes a significant climb over Colima. The medium skips this loop but still does a climb over West Road and East Road before it rejoins the long riders shortly before lunch. We have to spend some time in Long Beach in order to justify the name of the ride, so before returning to the start, there is a short loop in Long Beach. The short gets off Coyote Creek a little earlier than the other two routes and tours northern Orange County on its way back to the start. Don’t worry if we don’t get to the actual beach today. We’ll have plenty of opportunity for that throughout the summer. START:  EL DORADO PARK in Long Beach.  From San Diego Frwy (405), off and North/East on Studebaker 1 mi. to Park.  Park in Library lot on right just before Spring St. (Long 64 mi and 2700 ft Medium 54 mi and 1600 ft, Short 34 mi and 600 ft)
