          Bike Trail Summer Social Ride

          13 mile ride around Irvine - 95% on paved off street bike paths !

          Many people enjoy riding, but prefer to stay off the roads as much as possible.  This ride is for you!  We will ride the Walnut, Peters Canyon, Hicks Canyon, Jeffrey Open Space and Cypress Village trails.

          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.
