This is going way back but ask around about Coffee Crew, I did this one every Tues Thurs morning back in grad school, the ride used to go off from right near UCI campus. Lotsa local racers, fast, with a few hills at end (Turtle Rock & Newport Coast). Started around 6 I think.
There are rides every day. M/W/F rides leave from the corner of PCH and mcarthur at 6:30. Rides are about 1:30 to 1:45 long. Route is different each day. One good resource is cyclesveloce.com. Look in the racing pull down under training rides. You will find out specifics on other rides. The tues/thurs coffee crew ride is a good training ride.
