LSD Ride + PPtC Training Ride #2
This second post-pandemic LSD ride is our second PPtC training ride. The route takes us through some of our favorite roads, known as “Vista twist,” to West Lilac and Jesmond Dene. Join us if you’re considering becoming part of the Swami’s Padres Pedal the Cause team. This ride is bound to make you stop thinking about it! For added fun, we start and end at Rouleur Brewing… because we like it!
LSD stands for Long Steady Distance. That means steady pace, no surging. Depending on how many of us we have, we’ll break up into smaller groups accordingly. Each group will regroup at key points when necessary, but must keep moving to maintain the overall pace. Be prepared with the route so you can finish on your own in case you fall behind. These are not no-drop rides.
The rest stop is the camp store at Old Hwy 395/Circle R
The route is 50 miles/3,300′
Those wishing for a little less climbing can skip West Lilac

Heads up! Training Ride #3 will take us through Camp Pendelton. Make sure you have a valid base pass by May 2.
There are no available restrooms at the start, so take care of business before you get there. Also, if you shorten the route, keep in mind that Rouleur opens at noon. If you don’t want to find the doors closed (always a disappointment!), consider starting later in the morning and riding with a friend.
