2 Ride Options

Come Join us for our Member* Group ride.

We travel thru San Marcos on a variety of urban & residential roads to the Famous "Champagne Blvd." in Escondido (Lawrence Welk's honor) where we experience an exhilarating 3 miles of downhill!!

Heading North, the 54 milers start climbing on Circle R and see our first Avocado Groves of the day. The route follows Lilac Road to Historic Hwy 395--another BIG downhill! Working our way thru Horse Ranch Creek we then climb Ranger Road (a steady moderate climb) into Fallbrook, the "Avocado Capital of the World"! Then back via the "tree tunnel" of Green Canyon Road and some urban roads. FUN!

The 33 mile route splits from the longer ride at Circle R and takes Camino Del Rey to Hwy 76 where they are back on the shared route.

NOTE: Very Limited resources on this ride (water / restrooms / food, etc.). Be Prepared!

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