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 March 2019!)

Movie Night - The Bikes of Wrath

1920x1005_FB-EventPage_BikesOfWrath.jpg

Every now & then a Bicycle-Centric movie is put out on a limited basis - there is one coming in April that looks enjoyable - especially if you have ever considered adventure cycling…

””Bikes of Wrath, 2018 Banff Mountain Film Festival People’s Choice Award Winner….

Five Australian friends attempt to cycle 2600kms from Oklahoma to California in honor of the mighty westward migration undertaken by ‘The Grapes of Wrath’s’ Joad family. Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists explore the novel’s core themes– migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity – and how the nation has progressed some 78 years after Steinbeck’s Dust Bowl depiction was first published.
It is through countless acts of generosity from small-town individuals and communities, to desolating encounters with ‘unwanted’ Americans, that the cyclists experience first-hand the startling parallels of the novel in a country still grappling with immigration, wealth disparity and, ultimately, its own sense of identity.
The Bikes of Wrath couldn’t be more timely. It’s a funny, heartbreaking, yet ultimately hopeful documentary that opens our eyes to the complexities of America, all while shining a positive light on the nation at a time when the world needs it most

Showings scheduled ONE NIGHT at various theaters across OC: Irvine, Costa Mesa, Newport, Huntington, Mission Viejo, Foothill Ranch, Anaheim Hills, Brea, Garden Grove

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.)
