I love the beach. I love riding my bike. Why not ride my bike to the beach? That's exactly why it's been on my list of things to do while 25, and now I can say, it's been done!
It's an easy ride (no hills) but a long ride (over 40 miles roundtrip) to the beach. I went with a group from church on a warm sunny Sunday morning. We started on the Santa Ana River Trail near Yorba Linda and arrived at Newport beach for a perfect beach day! We didn't get to actually stay at the beach for very long, but we ate at one of my favorite post-surf spots in Newport called Big Belly Delly. I have to admit I was pretty tired when we got to the beach around lunch time, so on the ride back I lagged plus I was in food coma mode, very tiring. Overall, a fun ride and nice to check that off my list!
I tracked most of the ride on my phone, my longest ride - 46 miles!
