Surprise! Most of this route is off-road and elsewhere we’ll ride on multi-use paths to avoid busy arterials on this sweet loop into Irvine along the San Diego Creek Trail.
As we make the turn we’re heading for Quail Hill with its panoramic views to the northeast then cruise into Shady Canyon. Eventually we ride along Bonita Canyon Dr then duck into the Harbor View neighborhood before descending back to the Civic Center.
This moderately difficult route takes you on a great tour of the Irvine trails while riding mostly off-road. Bring water and sunscreen.
