The "Short" ride leaves Kit Carson Park and heads back on a Less Hilly route!  (info below). It travels thru Downtown Escondido then onward to Country Club Drive.  It finishes with a stretch of the Inland Rail Trail and then a bee-line to the end!

*Non-Members are WELCOME to come out for a "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!
