Yesterday I rode along the Mountains to Sea Trail which begins in Weir Canyon and winds for 22 miles through five cities ending in Back Bay, Newport Beach. There are some breathtaking views along the trail with wildlife that you wouldn't expect to see in Orange County. Here's a picture I took as I entered the Back Bay area.
I'm currently training for a 100 mile bike ride in October to benefit Multiple Sclerosis. It starts in Irvine, CA and ends in Mission Beach, San Diego. This will be my second year participating, the first was back in 2008 so it's time to get in shape again.
