A long weekend bike with a group is perfect for me to stay active without training for any triathlon in particular. This Sat. my wife and I went on a preview tour of the MS150 century ride from Irvine to San Diego. However we cut it short because 1) I'm not in great shape and 2) we kept Pat and Anya company on the way back. Today we went from Irvine to San Juan Capistrano and took the train back to Irvine. I plan on doing this ride more often because it's scenic and fun. Also, I enjoy riding the train for only $5.50. The only concern for me on this route is going through Laguna, the roads have plenty of traffic, it's hilly, and you have to share the road with cars. Nevertheless plenty of cyclist ride the PCH on on this stretch. Here's a picture of Peg, Anya, and Pat at the San Juan Capistrano train station.
In short, finding rides with clubs and other groups are a great way to get in some good distance rides for your triathlon training.
