Event Details

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
(858) 222-2453

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:
44 miles/3,000’

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

E route:
38 miles/2,400’

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.
