California Road Trip – Day 6 – Bike and BRAIN
Today was day six of the Norco Road Trip to California. One day, two fabulous rides. We started off by meeting up at the Bike Magazine office in San Juan Capistrano. We were given a quick tour then whisked off to ride at the top of Bluejay Canyon. After arriving at the top, we parked the van and started yet another epic shuttle. Alan and Ryan from Bike Mag along with local rider Travis all joined us for the ride down the mountain. The trail involved some steep decents, countless rock gardens and a whole lot of fun. Taking approximately two hours to get down with a few climbs speckled throughout, the trail has become another favorite. If you are ever in the area, head on over for a ride, but; Make sure you stop in at the Candy shop along the way. After the ride we headed down for some burritos with the crew before moving on for the next venture.
Our second ride of the day was with Nicole and Jason from Bicycle Retailer. For those who do not know, Bicycle Retailer is an industry magazine that is distributed in both the US and Canada to manufacturers and retailers. The mag discusses industry trends, government legislation, new products etc. etc. Basically anything that affects the back end of the Cycling industry. Anyway, Jason and Nicole took us out for a ride in the Laguna area to what is called ‘The Top of the World’. This was a steady climb to an extraordinary view of the California coast followed by a fast, burmed descent to dinner below.
Two more great rides, One amazing day.
