  • CRUNCH Fitness Vista, CA 225 Vista Village Drive Vista, CA, 92083 United States (map)

**2 Ride Options**

The "longer" Member* ride is a "climber's delight" which travels some of the nicer back-country roads in the area.  We do a steady climb up Lilac & then onward/upward to Valley Center.  A nice loop there with a stop at the popular "Bates Nut Farm".  A fly-by of Lake Wohlford (fun downhill) and then ride thru Escondido, San Marcos and Vista on rural and urban streets.

The "shorter" ride stays with the long group for 16 miles until the Lilac / Circle R interchange.  Then some REAL FUN begins with the Fantastic descent down Circle R which features panoramic views!  Then a flat cruise on Camino Del Rey thru vineyards to Route 76.  Finally a cruise on Santa Fe past the famous Guajome area and thru Vista to the Finish!

*Non-Members are WELCOME to come out for a "test" ride.

Note: Due to the wide-range of fitness and ability levels among cyclists, you should load the course onto your GPS device in case you become separated from the group (ahead OR behind!)
