Coronado – B/C/D Groups

Event Details

The Coronado ride is a yearly tradition we’re happy to bring back, and we are looking forward to the long, flat miles.  You have two options for a start location. Either way, we take the ferry back across to the Convention Center.  If you time it just right, you might be able to pick up a cup of coffee at the ferry landing.

Full Route: Start at Bird Rock Coffee Encinitas
We roll at 8 AM sharp. Bird Rock Coffee is located at 947 S Coast Hwy 101 Suite D101, Encinitas, CA 92024. We’ll gather at the south side of the coffee shop for pre-ride coffee and bananas provided by Bird Rock and pastries provided by Swami’s. Before and after the ride, Swami’s members receive a 15% discount on beverages and pastries.
77 miles/2,281′
There is plenty of parking on the streets west of Coast Hwy.

Shorter Route: Start at Torrey Pines glider port
Meet at the corner of Torrey Pines Scenic Drive and North Torrey Pines Rd. We estimate B group will roll by around 8:40 AM, with C and D a few minutes after.  Don’t be late!
55 miles/1,156′
Street parking is available on Torrey Pines Scenic Dr.  Last we checked, there were port-a-potties at the glider port dirt parking lot.
