This loop is the 400k version of the San Diego 3 Loops series. The first loop will have the most climbing as you ride toward the north inland portions of San Diego County. Riding on El Camino Real, you'll roll your way through the rural neighborhoods of Bonsall and Fallbrook riding on quiet country roads until you reach Rainbow for a quick refreshment. You'll make your way south on Old Hwy 395 to reach West Lilac Rd, where you'll continue east through more farmlands and sparcely populated parts of San Diego County into Valley Center, stopping at Bates Nut Farm. Reaching the highest elevation on the route when you turn toward Lake Wohlford, you make your descent to Escondido, passing Lake Hodges on your ride to Poway, reintering the suburban landscape of San Diego. Eventually you'll make your way back to the coast at UCSD and returning to Encinitas along the coast to complete the first loop.

The next loop an easy coastal cruise from Encinitas to Coronado, taking advantage of the Bayshore Bikeway in the South Bay and Silver Strand, returning inland on Genessee Ave, 56 bike path to Camino Del Sur and some short rollers through Fairbanks Ranch and Rancho Santa Fe back to the start. The highest elevation on this route is the top of Torrey Pines. But the inland leg will be a roller coaster ride when you reach Linda Vista. This loop is predominantly coastal urban, so there are lights to contend with, but you will pass by all the notable beach communities along the way.

If you are planning to stay overnight after the brevet, there is the Days Inn which is location of the ride HQ. There is also the Best Western right up the hill with more stately amenities.

To the start by car: If you are staying at the Days Inn after the ride, you may park at their lot as hotel guests. If not, the manager will allow you to park for a $5-$10 fee (still being finalized). If you want to park for free, Parking is available on the Encinitas Station Park and Ride on Vulcan Ave just down the street from the start. Parking is not available at the Moonlight Plaza across the street. There is a 2-hour limit and you will bear the risk of your car being towed if you decide to park there. 

To the start by train: If you are travelling to the start by train the day before, you can take Amtrak to Oceanside or Solana Beach station and then jump on the San Diego Coaster train to Encinitas Station.
