Sat Aug 01, 2015 9:00 AM - Tour de Five Cities Remote Ride

One of our most popular remote rides. For those of you who haven't done this ride before, it is a 39 miler with a few small hills that I call 'Tour De 5 Cities', because it winds through Laguna Niguel, San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point, Capo Beach, and San Clemente. The best part is the breakfaststop at the Dana Point Marina. The ride leaves from Ocean Ranch Shopping Center, next to Trader Joe's at Camino Del Avion and Golden Lantern. There's a shorter yellow ride 33 mile option also if 39 miles is a bit long for you. So mark your calendars for this totally enjoyable ride.

Before /After Eating options: Coffee shop, Z Pizza, Quiznos, Panda Express, and others, all available in the shopping center.
