Carlsbad Hills - 32 miles / 3100'

  • Alga Norte Park 6565 Alicante Road Carlsbad, CA, 92009 United States (map)

Come Join us for our Member* Group ride.  

Don't let the mileage fool you on this one!  You will quickly realize that the "coast" is not "flat"!  We ride many hills on urban streets (mainly bike lanes) and you'll be either going UP or going Down!  The Twin Oaks Valley Road climb into San Elijo is a feature of this ride.

*Non-Members may ride one "test" ride.

FRCC San Diego Rides are NO DROP & we do our best to stay together.  You should, however, load the course onto your GPS device "just in case".  Our Rides normally include some pre-planned "regrouping" points which are described in the cue sheet.  We want you to Have a SAFE & FANTASTIC ride!
