2nd Friday Get Together

For years BCI members have gathered for dinner & socializing on the 2nd Friday of the month at a food court with several options and a common dining area where we can gather.  
This is a no-host gathering so no guarantee who will be there - and in September a lot of the 'regulars' will be in Kentucky so may be an extra small group this month!   More

                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.
