2003 New Years Day Ride

Approximately 900 riders on PCH through Huntington Beach.   The ride started at the Long Beach Marina at 0800.  We joined up in Huntington Beach (PCH / Brookhurst) which was about 12 miles into the ride for those starting in Long Beach.   There was a Santa Ana wind blowing when we were entering Irvine.  This caused an echelon to form and took up all three lanes of Irvine Blvd.   I only saw one crash and it was on the steep 15% curving decent into Dana Point.   About 150 riders stayed together for the inland portion.
