PLEASE TAKE NOTE THAT ON JANUARY 10, 2023, THE ROUTE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO AVOID A SECTION ON LILAC ROAD THAT HAS STEEL PLATES ON A TWISTING DOWNHILL SECTION.

  

San Diego's Randonneurs' new year begins on the day when we host the Rainbow 200k. This brevet route explores the north inland sections of San Diego County. Leaving Doyle Park in University City, you ride through UC San Diego campus and descend down Torrey Pines before making your eastward progression. Your ride out will consist of several climbs such as Del Dios, Circle R, Couser Canyon and Rice Canyon before reaching Rainbow. After a stop for lunch at the Rainbow Market, you make your way westward riding through Fallbrook and Bonsall, then proceeding on the San Luis Rey bike path that parallels Highway 76 along the San Luis Rey River. After reaching Oceanside, you now proceed south and ride through several San Diego beach communities such as Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar, passing the statue informally called the Kook and the Del Mar Race Tracks, seeing the waves of the Pacific Ocean lapping the coast as you ride by. After your last bit of climbing passing Torrey Pines State Preserve, you return to Doyle Park for the finish.

RWGPS route map is final.

For this ACP brevet, San Diego Randonneurs will accept the following as proof of passage:

  • Electronic proof of passage (EPP) - at the end of the brevet, you have 24 hours (20:30 the evening following the brevet) to submit a link of your activity saved on Strava, Ride with GPS (RWGPS) or Garmin Connect to the brevet organizer. Please make sure your privacy setting is changed to public so that the entire activity trace is viewable. If you need to submit the entire activity in multiple activity traces, the end and beginning of each trace are near each other and viewable. Ideally, the sum of the separate traces will result in the entire route. You are responsible checking your computers regularly to make sure they are working properly and recording. If your trace is missing any section, especially where you passed a control, the file you submitted wiill be rejected. You are also responsible for making sure that your activity is uploaded to whichever app that will report your brevet trace. As backup, you should take selfie photos at each control if your bike computer craps out mid-ride or cannot upload for whatever reason. Telling the brevet organizer or RBA that you rode with someone will not be accepted as an alternate form of proof of passage.
  • Selfies at controls - at the end of the brevet, you have 24 hours (20:30 the evening following the brevet) to submit to the brevet organizer or the RBA by email the selfie photos of you or your bike at the control. If the control is at a store, have that store in the background. If at an intersection, then have the street signs as your selfie background. San Diego Randonneurs organizers highly recommend that even if you are going with EPP, you should still take selfie photos as backup. 
  • Brevet card - if you require a traditional brevet card, please advise the RBA by 12:00pm Wednesday, January 11. You will be sent a PDF copy of the brevet card to print out on your own. 

If you are joining us for the first time, you will need:

  1. Join RUSA for an annual membership of $30 at https://rusa.org/cgi-bin/memberjoin_GF.pl.
  2. After you receive your 5 digit RUSA number, register with San Diego Randonneurs by clicking on the link Join San Diego Randonneurs
  3. If you have any questions during the sign up process, send a quick note to sdrandos@gmail.com.

ALL SAN DIEGO RANDONNEURS EVENTS ARE ONLY OPEN TO PARTICIPANTS WHOSE RUSA MEMBERSHIP IS CURRENT.

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.
