PLEASE NOTE: new ride start time from the bike shop will be around 8:00 am after the A and B groups leave
We will be starting our ride this week at Revolution
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 the C and D groups will be doing a fun new route going out RSF/down Zumaque up Artesian road, into Poway and back down San Dieguito Road and through RSf again.
C and D route:
The E route is similar to C and D only differing in that they will climb San Dieguito Road and turn around before the 15 freeway in Poway – shortening the route by appx 5 miles and 600 feet of elevation
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 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.
