Meeting Location

We will be meeting at our house, and then biking to the Los Alamitos Creek Trail entrance off of Via Valiente.

Biking Route

The distance from our house to Via Valiente & Los Alamitos Creek Trail is 1.5 miles, and then it's another 9.5 miles to Willow Glen for a total of 22 miles round trip. Most of it is on Los Alamitos Creek Trail and Guadalupe River Trail. The rest goes through residential streets. Other than a couple ramps, the ride is pretty flat.

We like to walk down Lincoln Street, check out all the dessert shops, and gobble up the scrumptious treats to destroy all the exercise we just did :D Following are places we've tried:

Hang Out at Willow Street Frank Bramhall Park

This park is very close to Lincoln Street in Willow Glen. There's a playground, tennis courts, and public restrooms here. We haven't been here before, but we're thinking to try it out. Haul our cache of desserts to enjoy at the park :P
