This is our signature, one-and-only Swami’s Saturday Ride. The traditional route goes north on the coast to La Costa Ave, east through Elfin Forest to Escondido, then back along Del Dios Hwy and through Rancho Santa Fe to the coast.
C and D groups do this route once a month, departing at 8:00 AM. We stop at the Elfin Forest Park restrooms and skip the church. A and B groups do this route weekly, departing at at 8:10 and 8:14 AM respectively.
Bird Rock Coffee Roasters is located at 947 S Coast Hwy 101 Suite D101, Encinitas, CA 92024. There is plenty of parking on the streets west of Coast Hwy.
We’ll gather at the south side of the coffee shop for pre-ride coffee and bananas provided by Bird Rock and pastries provided by Swami’s. Before and after the ride, Swami’s members receive a 15% discount on beverages and pastries.
- 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. If you cannot keep the minimum pace for the group you are with, you can ride with the group behind you.
- These are the average speeds you can expect to see on our Saturday rides:
A group 20+ mph
B group 18-20 mph
C group 16-18 mph
D group 14-16 mph
