LSD Ride: San Clemente

Event Details


  • Safety is always first. Each cyclist is responsible for following health and cycling safety guidelines as well as traffic laws.
  • At this time, there are no designated ride leaders. Please download the route to your bike computer.

This Sunday, we’re going to San Clemente via Camp Pendelton. This route has the option to turn around at any point… Las Pulgas, the campgrounds, or do the whole thing! It’s up to you. If you do the whole route, the turn-around is the convenience store just north of Cristianitos Rd. on the east side of the 5 Fwy.

LSD rides now start at Lofty Coffee, La Costa. In warm weather, we like to stop at Rouleur Brewing on the way back. Otherwise, we ride back to the start, where there are many post-ride food and beverage options.

Remember to bring your base pass if you prefer not to ride on the freeway!

LSD stands for Long Steady Distance. The goal is a steady state ride at B and C levels. That means staying in zone 2 on the flats and zone 3 on the little pitches … a conversation-paced ride. No surging or attacking.

  • Helmets are required. We obey all traffic laws.
  • This is a ride for road bikes only (no aero, e- or mountain bikes).
  • We regroup at key points, but these are not no-drop rides.
  • Please have the route loaded onto your GPS device or know the course.
  • Bring fluids and snacks (suggestion: two full water bottles minimum and snacks), bicycle tube and a CO2 cartridge
