We will be meeting at LEAP COFFEE this week, which is located in inland Carlsbad near the intersection of El Camino Real and Faraday. Plan on coming early and/or staying after for a snack and coffee at Leap Coffee. The owners are very welcoming to cyclists, and their coffee is excellent.

The Route

https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22825909

40.9 miles, 1600'

This week we will head out to the coast on Faraday/Cannon, and then north to Oceanside. We will enter the Camp Pendleton base (make sure you bring your ID and register at the link below). The goal will be the entrance gate at the north end, for a total of around 40 miles. If you are looking for more miles, feel free to find someone else who wants to continue on north. The bonus of the Pendleton/San Clemente leg is that it's out and back.

We suggest for the return trip following the coast until Tamarack, then following the lagoon and making the one climb up El Camino Real on the return to Leap.

WE WILL PLAN TO START AROUND 8:00.


If you haven't registered to enter Camp Pendleton or just don't feel like going the full 40 miles, E group is doing an alternative 33 miler loop to San Luis Rey River Trail and back via the coast: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/24105186


Notes:

(1) Since we are not leaving from Nytro, we can leave at 8:00.

(2) Please bring two bottles and electrolytes. Do not expect that we will stop (we may stop, but it's always better to be prepared), and additionally, the places to stop are less numerous on this ride.

(3) Please bring an extra tube, CO2 cartridge or hand pump. Helmets are always required, and we obey all traffic laws.

(4) Road bikes are required for these routes.

IMPORTANT: BRING YOUR ID. REGISTER on the Camp Pendleton website as soon as possible, if you haven't already done so. If it's been awhile (several months) since you last registered, register again. It is a short form and takes only a few minutes.
