Since we haven't offered a new route for awhile, I decided to switch it up and create a new loop that's a mashup of several routes we have down in the past. The route comes in just under 40 miles, but has a fairly hefty amount of elevation gain but no single super long climb. We will head north along the coast, east up Tamarack, then wind around some of the Wednesday night route roads, and end up finishing out through RSF and Solana Beach.

C and D route:https://ridewithgps.com/routes/26551825

39.5 miles, 3500' elevation gain

E route: The E group will do the same route, but just finishing by traveling west on La Costa from RSF road, rather than continuing on to Rancho Santa Fe.
~30 miles, 2000' elevation gain

OUR START TIMES WILL BE SLIGHTLY AFTER 8:00.

We will be taking off at staggered times AFTER the faster Swami's groups leave. We will leave around 8:15. It is probably a good idea to still get there around 8 or so, especially if you want to enjoy a snack pre-ride or load up on gels at Nytro.

Here are our usual ride notes:

Our group descriptions are as follows. All groups are conducted in a non-competitive, cooperative format. If you are unsure where you are at but want to try us out, you can always start with the E group and see how that feels this week and then adjust accordingly.

C: Fast-paced with average speeds on flats 18-22 mph and average pace times over hilly routes 16-18 mph. Minimal stoppage times. Regroup at key points on the route.

D: Moderately-paced with average speeds on the flats in the 15-18 mph range with emphasis on consistent effort and building climbing skills. Overall average pace will be in 12-15 mph range on this route. Regrouping as needed.

E: Steady-paced rides with average speeds on flats 12-15 mph and average pace times in the 10-13 mph range. The overall emphasis is on building riding skills: using your gears, pacing, riding safely in traffic. The Beginner rides are always no drop meaning the group will wait for those who are falling behind.

NOTES: Please bring an extra tube, CO2 cartridge or hand pump, and enough fluid and snacks (suggestion: two bottles minimum for the longer rides, and two snacks). Helmets are always required, and we obey all traffic laws. Road bikes are highly recommended for these routes.

How to find us:Look for us at the south end of the Nytro store front
