FRIDAY : Marina Lite
Description: 23 miles, recovery, abridged version of Tuesday Marina Ride
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 6:30 AM

Place: 26th Street and San Vicente Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA


The Skinny: Unlike all the other weekday rides, this ride skips the warm up lap around the golf course and heads immediately down San Vicente towards Ocean Avenue. Remember: It's a recovery ride! Beverages at Peet's in Brentwood (San Vicente and Gorham) afterward.


Danger!: This ride travels through several high-traffic areas, most notably on the return up Ocean Avenue, which a has a thin shoulder and lots of motorists fueled on caffeine, yammering on cell phones and many times late for work. Keep your eyes open for open car doors and head up for fast red lights!


Tips for New Riders: This is a great ride for new riders. Get to know the route and meet some great people.
