Can I get a sticky please?

We have selected Saturday May 28th as the date for this. Starting point will be one of the 10 best Coffee houses in California, Kean Coffee. Kean's is located at:

13681 Newport Avenue, Suite 14
Tustin, CA 92780

Not to bad on the hills and scenic to say the least. Start is at Kean's coffee so I can show HW what small batch roasting is all about! Return trip is through Laguna Beach and Corona del Mar so there are many places to grab a bite to eat if we wish. As it is Spring(Could have fooled me) Art Affaire in Laguna Canyon is open for a stop if we wish. We will be heading through the Newport Beach Back Bay estuary, for the photogs in the group it is a great wildlife place if you were planning on bringing anything more than a P&S. A good Start time would between 8 and 9 AM.

I'm gonna play this one by ear.

1) It's far.
2) I have to hire a sitter if I'm gone.
3) It's far.
4) I'm in really, really bad riding shape. If I get some good commutes in that'll help.
5) And it's early.

4. Your bad shape is my good shape

This is evidence exhibit "A" of what happens when you get a motorcycle! :p
(Sounds exactly like Tcon circa 2008-2009)

Southbound choo-choo

as mentioned previously:

LAists: I'm looking at taking Amtrak down to Santa Ana and riding to the start. There's a 7:20 train that pulls in at 8:10ish. Several return options at 2, 3, 4, 5....etc. $38 r/t from Union Station. All aboard!

That map takes me back...

I grew up about 5 blocks from there (Highland Drive). All my schools were on Irvine Dr: Mariners Elementary, Horace Ensign Junior High, Newport Harbor High School. The Hi Time liquor store at Irvine and 17th would sell me beer when I was underage (70's).

Edit: Where'd the map go?

The map had to go because it was wrong. I want everyone to go to the Kean at Newport and Main in Tustin, Not the one in Costa Mesa. My screw up.

1. I know.
2. I'm sure.
3. You've made one ride, Magellan!
3b. I don't count the downtown ride, son. I'm 40 minutes past there.
4. Nevertheless.
5. I know.

Like I said, if I get some good commutes in between now and then, and I feel confident I can wake up early enough (17-month-old and TWO puppies ... you do the math), I'll be in.

I know you were all wondering so I'll put an end to the suspense.

I won't be able to make it.
