Escondido: Kit Carson / Old Town Poway - 47 miles / 3100'

  • Kit Carson Park, Escondido, CA 3333 Bear Valley Parkway Escondido, CA, 92025 United States (map)

*Park at South End of Park, near Ball Fields / Play Area

Come Join us for our Member* Group ride.  

Kit Carson, legendary Frontiersman, starts us on our journey to Historic Old Town Poway.  We warm-up in Escondidoā€”seeing the City and then some Rural backroads. We then go right past the start and head over Lake Hodges, into Rancho Bernardo, Sabre Springs, and Poway.  After seeing the Historic Poway Park (do you like Trains?) we climb Espola Road and are rewarded with a LONG downhill (& some rollers) to the finish.

*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!)
