    It's Bike to Work Week and Metrolink has free rides if you bring a bike. So, we'll bring our MTB's after work and ride the train from Irvine to Fullerton to ride the Fully Loop. Afterwards, we'll eat and drink in downtown Fullerton somewhere (Roscoe's?) and then take the train back.
    Train #689 at 5:17 PM Irvine to Fullerton
    Train #644 at 10:10 PM Fullerton to Irvine
    There is no Angel game this night, so train to Irvine should not be delayed.

    Looks like Metrolink is NOT doing this promotion this year. Looks like I need to change the thread title.
    Round trip fare from Irvine to Fullerton is $15.50. Probably still doing it. I'll look for some Metrolink promotions.

    Metrolink got back to me and they are now having free rides with bikes from the 13th to the 17th.
    Ride is on for me as long as it does not rain.

    Yep, after saying no; Metrolink finally said yes.
    Rain is the issue now, we'll see.

    I'll see what it looks like as I leave work tomorrow. If viable, I'll be there. Not far from the house.

    I'm going to go with CANCEL! on this.
    I see about a third to half an inch of rain in the area.

    Wise choice. I would imagine the HMB is in full operation.
