I started this ride at CSULB while Claire was at work. It’s a nice ride down PCH through Seal Beach, Sunset Beach, Huntington Beach, Bolsa Chica and others. It can get a little sketchy as PCH tightens up into Newport Beach (not the friendliest bike town in Orange County), but it opens up quickly, and you’re at the Newport Coast climb. Don’t be embarrassed if some people can run up the hill faster than you can ride it. . . I wasn’t.
