Oceanside: Mt. Soledad / 66 miles / 3200'

  • OCEANSIDE HARBOR (park in public lot near Jolly Roger) 1900 North Harbor Drive Oceanside, CA 92054 United States (map)

Come Join us for our Member* Group ride.

A Fabulous Coastal Ride that includes Climbing!! We warm-up with the iconic Torrey Pines climb to UCSD. After a bit on the Rose Canyon Bike Path we head up, up, and UP to the famous Mount Soledad National Veterans Memorial. Then a THRILLING descent (brake check!) back to sea-level. Then it’s back “home” on the Coast!

This is an “out and back” route—riders are able to turn-around almost anytime if desired—almost impossible to get lost once you are on PCH / Hwy 101!

*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!)
