Left behind Huntington Beach wetlands and rode down to Crystal Cover (in and out through Newport peninsula etc). 37 miles in all. Rode with my 2 friends and they came in really handy when I had a rear flat about 7 miles from the finish. It's nice having someone hold your bike while you take the wheel off and having another set of hands mounting the tire back on.

Added: BTW, it was the first time I've used a Co2 cartridge to fill my tire. Boy am I sold on these things. I've been a dope for so long using a mini-pump and pumping that thing for 700 strokes just to get it at a reasonable pressure. Co2 is going with me everywhere from now on! A complete shot from a 16gm cartridge go my 28mm tire right up to 90 psi in seconds. Right where I needed it.
