This is one of the "best" cycling adventures in California. It is also one of the most beautiful and easier distance rides with only one major hill, Torrey Pines. We will start at the Irvine Amtrak Station and head South going thru San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point, San Clemente, San Onofre, Camp Pendleton
Reminder: You need permit to get in Camp Pendleton
Make reservation for your bike from San Diego to Irvine
We should be in San Diego no later than 2:00pm
Lunch will be overlooking the Harbor in Oceanside.Then we head South again going thru Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solona Beach, Del Mar and beautiful La Jolla where the 'hill' is. Its really not that bad, I've read it was a 5 to 6% Grade and about 1 1/2 mile up. So if you can do the distance, 85 miles, you can do the hill.
This is definitely an intermediate+ ride for someone who has done a 'recent' 50 to 60 mile ride.
Please keep hydrating and snacking to keep up our energy level.
Bring shot blocks and power bars, etc.
