This is the full route of the second annual Project Rwanda event to be held on December 29th 2007. Proceeds from the ride and donations will be sent to Project Rwanda to buy specialty purpose bikes for Rwandan Coffee Growers. See www.50mileride.com for details and to officially sign up for the event.
This year's route leaves Cooks Corner, heads over Oneil Park, into Rancho Santa Margarita/Robinson Ranch and gives you the option to either go long or short at the Dove Canyon Waterfall. The full ride takes West Ridge Trail out to Caspers Wilderness Park for a big loop before returning to the Dove Canyon Waterfall, then finishing via Chiquita Ridge, Tijeras Creek, through the Arroyo Trabuco, O'Neil Park and back to Cooks. The short version simply omits the out and back loop to Caspers from the Dove Canyon Waterfall.
Event organizers had only a short time to prepare this year due to the recent wild fires, getting the necessary permits, etc. The new route is slightly under a full 50 miles, but the spirit of the ride has not changed.
Please come out and help this year's ride be another success!
01/04/08 Please help me get this route into my garmind edge 305. I've only had it for a couple of weeks, but the .crs files from geoladders don't work. It will take .tcx files though.
Fun ride though - great people.
