Could there be a more pleasant 100 miles of riding? Several times I have gathered a handful of friends to ride from Santa Ana and return from San Diego by train. It’s always been a wonderful way to spend several hours with special friends. But, this was the first time I participated in Orange County Wheelmen’s Amtrak Century!
This is one of the most fun, easy and satisfying century rides around! About 1,000 riders registered, of which 14 LGers braved the early hour wake-up call (4:00am) for the sleepy-eyed drive to Irvine. Once there, the organizers loaded our labeled bags and coolers onto semi’s to be driven to San Diego where they would be waiting for us, sorted alphabetically for easy pick-up.
