Bringing back a 2019 brevet route. This ride will start near the border in San Ysidro. 

Starting from the Best Western Americana Inn in San Ysidro, you'll make your way north along San Diego Bay through Downtown San Diego and Mission Bay to reach Mt Soledad to the Veterans Memorial and the cross to help you warm up. Turning inland, you'll continue on the 56 bike path to Camino Del Sur to connect up to Carmel Valley Rd, passing the foot of Black Mountain to reach Lake Hodges and Escondido. On Old Hwy 395, you'll continue north to Rainbow to enter Riverside County, passing Temecula and Lake Elsinore. You'll ride through Temescal Valley to reach the Trader Joes in south Corona where you turn around.

Retracing the route south to Hwy 76, you'll turn right to make your way toward the coast through Bonsall, connecting up to the San Luis Rey bike path that follows along Hwy 76 to Oceanside. You'll ride down the coast through the various North San Diego beach communities of Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar before climbing up Torrey Pines bluff to reach UCSD. Once back in La Jolla, you'll follow the western curve to Pacific Beach and Mission Beach, crossing the Ingraham St bridges over the bay to arrive at the San Diego River bike path. You'll ride through Old Town to avoid the busy section of Pacific Hwy before return to it on Washington St. From there, you'll backtrack on the same roads and bike paths to reach the finish.

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.
