Lilac/Bates/Wohlford - 61 miles / 3700'

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

Come Join us for our Member* Group ride.  

This "climber's delight" ride travels some of the nicer back-country roads in the area.  A steady climb up Lilac & 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.

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

We do our best to stay together.  Really.  But things sometimes happen.  Flat tires (ugh!). Ability levels may vary.  And don't forget those pesky Red Lights that split groups!  Please 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!
