Come Join us for our Member* Group ride.  

Option 1 (Long)

From Oceanside Harbor we go down the coast & Inland onto the 56 Bike Path.   Climb around 4S Ranch.  Then over Lake Hodges, thru Escondido, into Vista then back on the SLRRT.  This is a BIG ride!  You will get a "workout" at any speed or ability--be ready for some "time in the saddle"!

Option 2 (Short)

From Oceanside Harbor we go down the coast & Inland onto the 56 Bike Path.   A loop around Fairbanks Ranch then back up the Coast. "Less time in the saddle", but just as much fun and still a good workout!

*Non-Members may ride one "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!
