San Diego Randonneurs' fall classic brevet for those ready for a good day of climbing in the East County mountains. Starting from the parking lot behind Major's Diner in Pine Valley, you ride along the undulating hills before the descent. Just before the control in Jacumba, the border with Mexico is in sight. After making a quick stop for food and water, the ride doubles back on Old Highway 80 on a long ascent. Kitchen Creek is a tale of 2 climbs. The first half before the gate climbs in steps with several short steep ascents long the stretch. After carrying your bike over the gate, the climb turns to a steady 5-6% grade until you reach Sunrise Highway, with magnificent views and minimal cars to contend with. After a stop at the Laguna Mountain Lodge, the route continues along the ridge. On sections of the highway, you pass dramatic views of the edge where the alpine landscape of the Laguna Mountain rapidly falling into the Borrego desert. You make your way to Wynola just passing Julian before returning on the same stretch of road toward Lake Cuyamaca. Descending on Highway 79 to Descanco, you'll have to negotiate your last climb over Guatay before returning to the finish at Pine Valley. Over the distance of this brevet, you will have 0 traffic lights and 5 stop signs to deal with.

On Friday evening before the brevet, an email will be sent to distribute details on how this 200k will be organized to all participants who registered.
