Mile 1.5: Recently the construction on University has made the route tough - all the way back to before Campus. On this route, just after Harvard merge onto the connector to the San Diego Creek Trail bike path & slow down to avoid all of the construction zone rather than taking the narrow lane & steel plates all the way to Jamboree where University becomes Eastbluff. You can resume at mile 3.2 of the route at the NW corner of Jamboree & Eastbluff. (Assuming construction will still be going on in November)

Mile 27.7 on the full route: Last time we rode #12 the construction on University impacted the route at Campus & University. The plan is to take Campus east toward UCI and then go up stream on the San Diego Creek bike path; To get there, the route calls for a Right onto University and then a right on the connector to take the path back under Campus… In December the connector was gone, and the construction made it hard to get to the path. The detour is to skip the path & turn LEFT on University instead of RIGHT, then turn Left on Harvard, then Right on Michelson back to the route slip at mile 29.1  (Assuming the road work construction has not been completed by April 2019 ! If the connector has been replaced or even improved to the SW corner of Campus & University, the route will work as published.)

Bike Detour.png

Mile 1.5: Recently the construction on University has made the route tough - all the way back to before Campus. On this route, just after Harvard merge onto the connector to the San Diego Creek Trail bike path & slow down to avoid all of the construction zone rather than taking the narrow lane & steel plates all the way to California at mile 2.4. (Assuming the road work construction has not been completed by January 2019!)

New Friday Ride Leader Needed!

After 10 years, Dave Marino, our volunteer Friday ride leader, is stepping aside at the end of 2018. On behalf of the entire club, the BCI Board of Directors wants to thank Dave for all his efforts for so many years. Club activities don’t happen without volunteers working behind the scenes!

Absent a new volunteer ride leader, we will discontinue the Friday rides. Recent participation has been low as there are several other groups, including BCI members, with alternate rides on Friday mornings.

A new ride leader can define the type of ride it will be - or maybe even change it to Thursday? Start time, location, types of routes, coffee stops, etc. can all be defined by the ride leader. Also, a ride leader of a BCI-sanctioned ride has the protection of the club’s liability insurance. See HERE for more information on organizing club-sanctioned rides.

If you would like to volunteer, email Jim Norman at rides@bikeirvine.org. This is a great way to help “give back” to BCI and won’t take much of your time.

The role involves:

1. Selecting the routes (we have a database of 21 existing Friday routes, plus some 150 other routes already made up) and notifying the BCI Ride Coordinator who will post them to the club calendar.

2. Putting the sign in sheet out, and Guest Waivers, with pens - then putting it away after the ride.

3. Printing/putting out route slips (the club will reimburse for printing cost), or we can ask riders to BYO their own route slip (or load it into their bike computer, all the routes are in RidewithGPS).

4. The ride leader can also suggest new routes or changes to existing routes and work with the Ride Coordinator to prepare route slips.

That’s it. Please contact Jim Norman at rides@bikeirvine.org if you can help out.
