We will be starting our ride at Revolution Bike Shop
located in Solana Beach.
the address is
235 S Hwy 101, Solana Beach, CA 92075
There is plenty of free parking nearby, just south of the bike shop at CVS pharmacy or off of Cedros drive at the train station.
This week we are going to head north into Carlsbad and Oceanside on yet another new route, that I hope is fun and interesting for everyone –
The route will be the same for the C and D groups and there will be a Chevron to stop to refill drinks and use the restroom if necessary at mile 21.5
This week there will be no E group but there will be a beginner ride also starting at Revolution
Keep in mind…
We will be taking off at staggered times AFTER the faster Swami’s groups leave. We will leave around 8:00Am -it is a good idea to still get there around 7:45 or so.
NOTES: Please bring an extra tube, CO2 cartridge or hand pump, and enough fluid and snacks (suggestion: two bottles minimum for the longer rides, and two snacks). Helmets are always required, and we obey all traffic laws. Road bikes are required for these rides.
C, D, and E groups are conducted in a non-competitive, cooperative format. If you are unsure where you are at but want to try us out, you can always start with the E group and see how that feels this week and then adjust accordingly.
C: Fast-paced with average speeds on flats 18-22 mph and average pace times over hilly routes 16-18 mph. Minimal stoppage times. Regroup at key points on the route.
D: Moderately-paced with average speeds on the flats in the 15-18 mph range with emphasis on consistent effort and building climbing skills. Overall average pace will be in 14-15 mph range on this route. Regrouping as needed.
E: Steady-paced rides with average speeds on flats 13-15 mph and average pace times in the 12-14 mph range. The overall emphasis is on building riding skills: using your gears, pacing, riding safely in traffic.
