Holiday Ride & Toy Drive

Event Details

The season of giving has begun, and we are calling on the North County cycling community to help by collecting toys for families in need over the holidays. We will be supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities, Rady Children’s Hospital Toy Fund and The Mitchell Thorp Foundation.

The Toy Drive will culminate with a Holiday Ride from Rouleur Brewery in Carlsbad on Sunday, December 12th. The ride will be at conversational pace through the city of Carlsbad. All abilities of cyclists are welcome; you must sign a waiver to ride. We encourage you to dress up in the spirit of the holidays and come together as a community to brighten the holidays for kids in need.  We will gather at 9:00 AM for coffee, pastries and presentations. The ride will roll out approximately at 10 AM.

The Toy Ride and Drive is in honor of Jocelyn Croxen #JocelynStrong, a strong and beautiful 9yr old warrior that is currently fighting T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Rather than thinking of herself over the holidays, she’s thinking of others who are also fighting and wants to make sure they know that they have a community wrapping our collective arms around them and supporting them.

Full route 30.1 miles with coffee stop option at La Costa Coffee Roasting (Rouleur opens at noon):

Shorter option, 16.5 miles:
