50 Mile Ride for Rwanda

50 Mile Ride for Rwanda

This ride is one of the largest mountain bike events in Southern California. First of all, this event is a “ride”, not a race, designed to raise money for Rwanda (funds used to further the economic development of Rwanda through initiatives based on the bicycle as a tool and symbol of hope). Riders participate for a lot of reasons: some for the challenge of riding further on a mountain bike than ever before, some because they love the Rwanda cause, some for the fun of sharing the day with all of their riding buddies. 

The 50 mile route is their signature event. Total of 49.2 miles and 5,560 feet of climbing. Typical riding time is 5-7 hours.

Ride Location: Irvine Regional Park
Time: Leave the Valley on Friday @ 2:00pm

Route description:
Starting at Irvine Regional Park, the 50 mile route will climb up and into the back side of O’Neill. We then proceed through and out of O’Neill near the RSM lake, and make our way to the Dove Canyon waterfall and our first major aid station. Then we’ll ride the ridge trails all the way to Caspers Wilderness Park, drop down Star Rise and head right on Bell Canyon to the Old Corral parking area and our aid station. From there we proceed up East Ridge all the way to Cougar, then Oso, then back on Bell Canyon and up Star Rise, tracing our route all the way back to the Dove Canyon waterfall and aid station. After refueling, we follow the Tijeras Creek Trail past SMCHS, across Coto de Caza, down and alongside Antonio Pkwy, then drop into the fun Arroyo Trabuco Trail. Take Arroyo Trabuco back into O’Neill, tackle a couple more climbs, and head back to Oakley for some well-earned rest and recreation. Total of 5,242 feet of climbing. Typical 5-7 hours.
