about a bike ride

I had a black Nishiki ten-speed that I bought at the Schwinn shop on 17th Street in Costa Mesa. And Costa Mesa is where I lived and would leave from those late mornings, aimed toward Irvine by way of Tustin, then beyond, toward El Toro, where I would stop for a coffee at the Diedrich's that is very likely long gone. And it's probably Lake Forest, not El Toro.

But it was El Toro Boulevard I would find and ride to Laguna Canyon Road, which I would take to Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach, then back up toward Newport, the climb up Superior into Costa Mesa and back home.

Toe baskets, not clips, and I'd have tennis shoes wedged as best I could into those baskets.
