This 140k is organized to celebrate the end of a busy 2022 and thank you to all who have taken part. Originally planned as a 200k, reducing the distance is to enable riders to finish by 16:30 just before sunset.

No registration fee for riders who have:

  • Taken part in at least one 200k or greater brevet; or
  • Taken part in at least two populaires (<200k)

For others, the registration fee is $15. When you register, you can stop just before submitting payment. I'll be notified and will check the 2022 participation roster and complete your registration.

This route travels the length of El Camino Real in San Diego County. Starting from Liberty Station, you'll ride up the usual Rose Creek/Rose Canyon bike paths to UCSD before descending down to Sorrento Valley to catch the start of El Camino Real at mile 16. You'll roll through Rancho Santa Fe passing very expensive real estate. At Olivenhain, you'll take a break from a busy section of El Camino Real in "In"-cinitas before reconnecting at Leucadia Blvd to continue the trek. You will note that El Camino Real is rather hilly. Trailblazers relying on beasts of burden were less incentivized to find flatter terrain. The end of El Camino Real will be at mile 44 at the San Luis Rey Bakery and Restaurant located just west of the mission. 

From the restaurant, you'll begin your ride south. Instead of the usual 76 bike path route to the coast, you'll take the roads through south Oceanside to Carlsbad. The southbound trek will be along the coast. There will be a detour inland starting at the Kook in south Encinitas to reach the recently completed bike path under the I-5 at Manchester Ave. From Solana Beach at the other end of the bike path, you returning to the coast in Del Mar on Jimmy Durante Blvd. After the climb up Torrey Pines to UCSD, the last stretch of the ride will go through Pacific Beach, Mission Bay and Ocean Beach.

At the finish, the club will provide food at Oggis to celebrate the winter holidays and to prepare for 2023.

You will need to register for this ride in advance. There is no day-of registration. Start/Finish will be staffed. SAG support and staffing at a control along the route will depend on volunteers available for this event.

All riders must follow RUSA rules. Helmet, lights and reflective gear are a must (lights and reflective gear must be worn between dusk to dawn). Riders must follow all local traffic laws and regulations.

Although bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists and are subject to the same rules and regulations, it is crucial that bicyclists pay attention to traffic signs and signals and follow all rules to reduce the risk of collisions, while on the road. Refer to the California Driver Handbook to become familiar with these rules. This excerpt is found at the DMV website for Sharing the Road (FFDL37) and can be read here.
