Newport Coast Short by wildwes49

Saturday, 13 August 2011:  I began my ride today from Norwalk, CA and met 7 other riders from my bike club at Liberty Park in Cypress.  We went down the San Gabriel River Trail to Pacific Coast Hwy and then headed south to Newport Beach.  In Newport Beach we rode up Marguerite to San Joaquin Hills.  We took San Joaquin to Back Bay and went the long, scenic way around the bay.  After going around the bay, we returned to Pacific Coast Hwy to begin our return trip.  We stopped at Newport Burger at about 40 miles into our ride.  After we ate, it was only another 20 miles until we arrived back at Liberty Park.  The total ride today was about 60 miles not including my ride to and from Liberty Park.  Marguerite was our only real climb today and the total elevation gain for the ride was about 900 feet.  It was a cool day for a ride and everyone seemed to enjoy it.  You can click on the link below to view the details of today’s ride.
