A Winter’s Day South OC Bike ‘n Brunch

Some of the best weather along the SoCal coast can be in the middle of winter.  Steve and I rode portions of rides SC1 (San Clemente), DP1 (Dana Point) and SJC1 (San Juan Capistrano) on a Saturday morning in January.  Hundreds of cyclists of all stripes were out on the roads and paths enjoying the perfect 70F sunshine.  The route is also connected by two Metrolink stations.

Ride SC1 is along San Clemente's Beach Path, where the amazing scenery compensates for the questionable design for biking.  Looking SE at San Clemente Pier.

Ride DP1 -- After the protected cycleway along Coast Hwy is beautiful Doheny Beach, where you can ride alongside the surf for a couple of miles.
