50 mile ride - Route
Starting at Cook's Corner, this full route will climb into the back side of O'Neill, proceed through and out of the park near the RSM lake, and make its way to the Dove Canyon waterfall. Then we'll ride the ridge trails all the way to Caspers Wilderness Park, dropping down Star Rise and catching trails including Bell Canyon, Oso, Cougar, and back to Bell Canyon. At the end of Bell Canyon we arrive at a parking lot and rest rooms that will be our outermost checkpoint and refueling/aid station. From there we proceed up East Ridge all the way to Cougar/Oso, back on Bell Canyon and up Star Rise, tracing our route all the way back to the Dove Canyon waterfall (an aid station will be there as well). After refueling, we ride past the Coto main gate, climb and traverse Chiquita Ridge, head down Tijeras Creek trail to the Arroyo Trabuco Trail. Then we turn back to O'Neill, climb through the park and head back to Cooks Corner for some well-earned rest and recreation.Click Here for Geoladders route: http://www.geoladders.com/show_route.php?route=20064

25 mile ride - Route
This ride shares the same beginning and ending route as the 50 miler - but it skips the entire middle Caspers section. It starts at Cook's, climbs through O'Neill and on to the Dove Canyon waterfall. However, instead of riding out to Caspers, this group will head directly over to the Chiquita Ridge trail, down Tijeras Creek to the Arroyo Trabuco Trail, back through O'Neill and finish up at Cook's for some post-ride fun.

5 mile fun ride
New this year! This fun ride is open to riders of all ages. It's an easy route, travelling along the paved Aliso Creek Bike Trail from Cooks Corner down to Saddleback Church and back. Enjoy fun games for riders along the way.
