Our “NewB” rides are geared for new riders, riders with some experience, and riders who have never ridden in a club atmosphere. We will do a modified version of the scheduled Saturday short ride, (check bikeirvine.org for Saturday Ride schedule) adding as much off-street bike path as available...

No registration & FREE – but do email Bill@BikeIrvine.org so he has an idea of how many are coming! BCI Members who are willing to coach & role model good bicycle driving are welcome to help out… Cycle of Safety members are especially welcome!

The Parade starts at 10 on PCH & marches up Main. Our route will get us to Main & Yorktown in 13 miles. If you want to get a space on the curb & see the front of the parade coming up Main, start your ride by 9 if you can average 13 MPH, ...as early as 8:30 if slower. If you start at the usual 9:15-9:30 you will still get to the parade in progress, have more than your fill of the crowd, and we can all regroup at Starbucks to come back together. Pedestrians are allowed to cross the parade route @ Yorktown so we can walk our bikes over to the Starbucks side.

Many enjoy lunch together after the Tuesday ride at the nearby center at Culver & Michelson.

      Bike Path Summer Social Ride

      Many people enjoy riding, but prefer to stay as far from traffic as possible.  Some just enjoy a break from regular traffic riding. This ride is for you!  We will ride the paved bike paths along Irvine's Walnut, Peters Canyon, Hicks Canyon, Jeffrey Open Space, Cypress Village and Sand Canyon trails.

      13 mile ride around Irvine - almost all on paved bike paths & even some side walks!

      Invite friends, neighbors, significant others, meet new friends.  This is a NO DROP ride, we will regroup along the way so no one is left behind.  Almost any type of bike is suitable. Helmets are strongly recommended and required by law for minors. 

      We roll at 5:30 pm.  Sunset is at 7:36 pm, so there is plenty of time to get back before dark.

      We had a good turn out in May, so we have schedule more of these rides over the summer.
