Just a heads up for the meetup this Saturday for the Santa Monica ride. The city of Irvine is doing some resurfacing and Sand Canyon is on the schedule, but the end that Burt Road is on is ok. I don’t know if they have started on Sand Canyon yet or if they will have by Saturday. The resurfacing shouldn’t be a big deal, but it might be enough of a nuisance to get your bike dirty or have some asphalt or tar thrown up on the fender.
It looks like the best way to get to the meetup site is from the end the 5 is on, not the 405. You can see the entire project at the City of Irvine site and more specifically the map showing where the resurfacing will be.
Hope to see you there Saturday! – Ed
