Returning for the 2016 Orange County Ride for AIDS, this “no-spandex-necessary” route is perfect for families and/or casual riders looking to get involved in healthy and easily accomplished activities that serve a cause, as well! This ride will give you a taste of what OCRA is about and we’re certain that next year you’ll want to taste even more!
The 30-mile Taste of OCRA Ride is designed to give newer riders a taste of why Orange County is such a fantastic place to ride bikes. This year’s route will start out riding past UCI to the back bay before heading through the beautiful rolling hills of Bonita Canyon. As you ride you will pass by Mariner’s Church and UCI…take a moment to enjoy the beautiful area you are riding through. Continue through the area of Shady Canyon with panoramic views of rolling hills, golf courses, and the cities of Tustin and Irvine. Then wind your way through the tree lined streets of Irvine up to the Orchard Hills area before heading back toward the William R Mason Regional Park. The Taste of OCRA route is both challenging and enjoyable for all levels of riders..
This ride can definitely be accomplished with very little advanced preparation though some pre-conditioning is recommended.
The Taste of OCRA Ride departs the William R. Mason Regional Park at 7:00 am.
