This summer, I have been taking a group of boy scouts on a series of road rides to enable them to earn their Cycling Merit Badge. We started with a series of 10 mile, 15 mile and 25 mile rides – two of each. Last weekend, we capped it off with a 50 mile ride thru Tustin, Irvine, Newport Beach and Huntington Beach – and back! We rode along the beach for parts of it and also enjoyed the Back Bay on the way back.
Here we are at the half way point in Huntington Beach at the Dairy Queen.
This is a view of the Back Bay.
It made for a very long day, but we all did it in about 5 1/2 hours. Pretty amazing!
