It’s spring, and the beautiful roads of east San Diego are calling! Starting in Pine Valley, we’ll begin with a 10-mile warmup before tackling the main climb that is Kitchen Creek: 11 miles of roughly paved forest road that wind up at Sunrise Highway. Don’t worry about jumping the two barriers – They keep most of the climb closed to traffic. After that, you have three options. Green vistas, here we come!
Kitchen Creek Only
Kitchen Creek with Lake Cuyamaca
Kitchen Creek with Engineers Rd:
*** The A/B Swami’s World Famous Saturday ride will depart from Cadence as usual

This is a big lot that is usually mostly empty, but park towards the back of the lot near Old Hwy 80
BATHROOMS AT THE START
Less than ¼ mile North on Old Hwy 80 from the parking lot is the Pine Valley Count Park which has bathrooms. Visit them before the ride start. Routes do not go by the bathrooms
They are marked on all routes. The first stop for all three routes is the Laguna Mountain Lodge store
