  • Oceanside Harbor / parking near Jolly Roger 1900 North Harbor Drive San Diego, CA, 92101 United States (map)

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.   Climb around 4S Ranch.  Then over Lake Hodges, thru Escondido. "Less time in the saddle", but just as much fun! 

*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!
