El Cajon: Great Western Loop - 40 miles / 3900'

  • Starbucks - Rancho San Diego, CA 2512 Jamacha Road El Cajon, CA, 92019 United States (map)

Come Join us for our Member* Group ride.  

This ride is a clockwise loop with significant climbing (but mostly averaging 4-6%).  It is known as one of the "rites of passage" for the San Diego Cycling Community.  Although a bit narrow and rough at times, these back-country roads offer wonderful views and a chance to challenge yourself.  Note that there are NOT many opportunities for getting supplies so BE PREPARED!

*Non-Members may ride one "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!)
