One of Bicycling Magazines top ranked group rides, the Camp Pendleton ride rolls north through Pendleton to San Clemente where it turns around and heads back to Carlsbad. Out and back is 49 miles. The Pendleton ride has been described as one of the hardest flat rides you can do. So bring your A game and bring your ID – you must have a valid drivers license or state-issued ID to get onto the base.

Beginning October 1, 2018, the only acceptable credential is the DBIDS Recreational Bicyclist pass/credential, which must be obtained in person at the Visitor Center located in Bldg. 20255T, adjacent to the Main Gate near Interstate 5.

Please note that riding through Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is a privilege not a right. Please behave accordingly: Obey all traffic laws and instructions from base personnel. Ride in an organized paceline and do not spread out into the traffic lane. Finally, watch out for tanks.
