This brevet is organized for randonneurs who are heading to PBP in the 90-hour start groups. It should give you a chance to work out any night start logistics issues before your big endeavor in France.

Starting from Escondido, you'll make your way to Bonsall before continuing along Old Highway 395 through Rainbow, Temecula and Lake Elsinore to Corona. From Corona, you'll start to ride west on Foothill Parkway and Green River Road before hopping onto a short section of the Santa Ana River Trail, exiting at Gypsum Canyon Road. Not far down the road you'll come to Santiago Canyon Road, a long stretch of road rolling through the backcountry of Orange County. You'll re-enter the suburban landscape at Trabuco Canyon Road, making your way south toward San Clemente at Ave Pico, where you will ride south along the Pacific Coast with the wind behind you, passing the soon to be dismantled San Onofre Nuclear Generation Station (SONGS), San Onofre State Beach and Camp Pendleton. For the finish, you'll ride down to Encinitas before making your way back to Escondido through San Marcos.

Parking is available in the mall. Plenty of restaurants and markets in the area. Between mid-night and sunrise (07:00), most businesses will be closed except for gas station convenience stores. If time and staffing permit, we'll organize a staffed control to provide food and drinks.

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.
