San Juan Capistrano: Olympic Memories - 44 miles / 3500'

  • Historic Town Center Park 31872 El Camino Real San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675 United States (map)

Come join us for our Member* Group Ride!

This is a HILLY route from Historic San Juan Capistrano (home of the famous Mission) out to Cook’s Corner and back. We ride urban streets, dedicated Bike Paths, and even fly-by the 1984 Olympic Road Race Finish Line! (Cool!!).

The first 1/3 of the route is rolling—steady climbs followed by nice downhills (the hills just keep coming and coming!). But “hang in there”—the middle 1/3 is mostly downhill and features riding on some GREAT bike paths! The final 1/3 adds a bit more climbing with a downhill Finish! FUN!

*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!)
