    San Marcos, CA 92069

    $6.00

    This route is the first in the series of gravel/mixed terrain populaires that Kelly D designed. Back when he first introduced these routes, few, if any randonneurs, cared to get their bikes dirty in order to take on these off road challenges. Some of us are now realizing that indeed he was a rando before his time for his mixed terrain advocacy.

    Mixed Emotions links the following trails in one populaire:

    • Raptor Ridge - Bandy Canyon approach
    • Mule Hill
    • Piedras Pintadas - Chelsea's Light
    • Lusardi Creek Loop
    • Penasquitos Creek Trail (north) to Del Mar Mesa
    • Deer Canyon Trail
    • Escondido Creek Trail - Rancho Santa Fe to Harmony Grove
    • Questhaven

    With 18 miles of gravel/dirt trails, the new gravel allowance adds 29 minutes to the time limit. This populaire's official finish time is 14:17.

    A road bike is not recommended. There are some short technical sections. For novice gravel riders, walking/hiking is an acceptable gear to use to finish this populaire safely.

    $6.00

    With the Race Across America kicking off in June, this populaires celebrates this ultra-distance cycling event by riding on a very very very micro-portion of the 3000-mile challenge on two wheels.

    Starting from Pizza Port Bressi Ranch, you'll ride down to the coast to the Oceanside Pier, where the race starts. Jumping on to the San Luis Rey bike path, you'll follow the parade start portion of the race route, making your way to Mance Buchanon Park. The "official" race course begins on College Blvd, climbing Sleeping Indian and then up Old Castle Rd to Valley Center Rd. You can endeavor to hammer and race this section of the populaire route, Whereas the RAAM racers will turn left on Valley Center Rd to continue to Annapolis, Maryland several days later for the finish, you'll make a right to descend down to Escondido and back to Pizza Port for pizzas and beer.

    The order of finish will be by last name, but you are welcome to "race" either just on the official RAAM course or even the whole 100k. On Tuesday, June 14, RAAM solo and RAW (Race Across the West) racers will start their epic race from the Oceanside Pier, followed by the team start on Saturday, June 18.

    San Diego, California 92128

    $11.00

    Putting this ride up as some has expressed interest either to complete their ACP SR series or just to take part in the centenary of the first organized 300k brevet. Like the 200k last year, there will be medals passed out to the finishers if you are into hardware.

    I had Corona 300k as the intended route. But given the possibility of high temps especially in Riverside County, I opted for an alternate version of the Missions 300k that will keep everyone on the coast for as long as possible. This 300k will be a low key affair: you show up, you ride, you finish, you get a medal. At the finish, I'll have Corona cervezas (the good Corona) and Mexican snacks. For atmosphere, I might even stream mariachi music. The 300k centenary will be as French as Cinco de Mayo, or Once de Junio for this occasion.

    For parking, please park on the street and not in the parking lot. The neighborhood is safe.

    You'll start from Highland Ranch Park in Carmel Mountain Ranch. Why this park? Because I can walk from my home to the start and finish. You'll head south to jump on the 52 bike path from Tierrasanta to Santee where you'll ride down the Father Junipero Serra Rd (hence the San Diego Padres), passing the old "mission" dam to reach Mission San Diego in, you guess it, "Mission" Valley. Then you'll climb out of the San Diego River valley via the I-15 bike path to Normal Heights. Along Adams Ave and then Park Blvd, you'll make your way through the urban quarters of Normal Heights, University Heights and Hillcrest. You'll enter Balboa Park from the east and ride through the park on El Prado, which is closed to car traffic. The control will be in front of the Museum of Us (formerly Man) and the Tower of California, San Diego Randonneurs' logo. Then you'll cross the Laural St bridge into Bankers Hill before making your way to Presidio Park, the location of Cosoy, the original Kumeyaay village where the Spanish settled/usurped upon arrival in San Diego and founded the first mission site before moving to the inland location.

    From there, the route takes you north to Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside just off of the San Luis Rey bike path. Returning to Oceanside, you'll continue on into Orange County. If you have the base pass to enter Camp Pendleton, you are welcome to ride through Mesa Stuart to access the bike path off of Las Pulgas Ave. If not, I-5 is traversable by bicycle. It seems intimidating with car traffic speeding by. In fact it is safe, especially during day time.

    In OC, you'll continue along the coast through San Onofre and Trestles, then San Clemente and finally Dana Point before you turn inland on the San Juan bike path to reach Mission San Juan Capistrano, famous for the returning swallows. You'll catch a glimpse of the dome constructed of stone demolished by one of the many earthquakes in California. From San Juan Capistrano, you'll start your journey south along the same route to San Diego.

    As the majestic Torrey Pines bluffs (hyperbole) come into view and cause you to shudder at the though of climbing up that road, you'll make a left to descend down Carmel Valley Rd where you'll jump on the 56 bike path to make your way back to Carmel Mountain Ranch. About half way to the finish, you'll get off the bike path and continue on Carmel Valley Rd, passing Black Mountain to your right before making your way to the finish.

    CAUTION: Because there is a LONG stretch along the coast where you'll bike in both directions, your Garmin's navigation will play tricks on you by telling you to make U-Turns. A reminder that your southward trek does NOT start until you have reached Mission San Juan Capistrano. A good way to help you remember that fact is that the "3" in the Missions 300k means you will stop at "3" missions on this brevet.

    WARNING: This route has been altered to minimize climbing that you'll have to negotiation through. But minimal is a relative term. For statistical comfort, the highest elevation will be 800 ft when you reach the summit on the 52 bike path at mile 17. That said, I designed the Thrice Loop 600k to be an easy ride and it ended up being described as arduously epic. Ergo the warning.

    It's getting warm in the East County mountains and I'm getting lazy. Since I missed the Rouleur Award Series Populaire #3 for the make up RAC 400k permanent in which I DNF'ed, I'm replacing the challenger series ride with this easier Trolley Century, inspired by the San Diego Trolley which recently completed the BLUE LINE extension into University City.

    This route will venture down along the BLUE LINE and the San Diego Bay to the border with a visit to the Friendship Park and to the San Ysidro trolley station. Returning north along the BLUE LINE, the route will connect up to the ORANGE LINE heading east, passing through Lemon Grove, La Mesa and El Cajon before making its way to the eastern terminus in Santee. From here you'll ride along the GREEN LINE through San Diego State and Mission Valley. At Ulric St, you'll ride along Linda Vista Rd and Genesee Ave to reach the BLUE LINE's northern terminus at UTC. Through UCSD and the Rose Canyon/Rose Creek bike path, you'll make your to Mission Bay, ending at the Coronado Brewing Company.

    This route is easy. For a challenge, you'll climb Cinnabar Dr to Eastrdige Dr. However, the difficulty is not being tempted to call it quits by all the trolley stops that you'll pass.

    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.

    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.

    The San Clemente 200k is an out and back route starting from Coronado Brewing Company on Knoxville St. In addition to the beauty of the Southern California coastline you'll be passing while riding north and south, you will only need to deal with 1 control at Spunky and Tudor Deli off of the Street of the Blue Lantern Dana Point. Immediately after the control, you'll make your descent down Cove Rd where you'll take in the amazing view of the Dana Point Harbor and the Pacific Ocean. Another name for this 200k is "Surfin' USA 200k" as you will pass a fair number of the famous surf spots listed in Beach Boys song.

    This brevet has the option to ride through Camp Pendleton if you have a base pass. See the link to Camp Pendleton's page on how to apply for the DBIDS Credential (https://www.pendleton.marines.mil/Base-Access/Recreational-Bicycling/).

    Tired of gas station sandwiches or the potato chips you scarf down at 7-Elevens? This populaire is to celebrate that Cantonese noon time culinary decadence as our reward for completing a metric century endeavor. This populaire will be a counter-clockwise loop starting in Mira Mesa. You'll ride through the North County neighborhoods of Poway, Escondido, South Carlsbad, Encinitas and Del Mar, before heading back to Mira Mesa. On this route, the key places you'll ride by include Lake Hodges, Elfin Forest, the Kook, Torrey Pines and the Miramar National Cemetary.

    After we finish, we'll enjoy a relaxing dim sum lunch at Golden Island Restaurant to make up for all the foul foods consumed at the various controls throughout our randonneuring lives. For some, the lunch may be more of an adventure than the ride. Significant others of randonneurs who may not care for the cycling but would like to indulge in this Cantonese dining experience are welcome to join after the populaire. Expect about $15-$20 per person, excluding any alcohol. For traditional dimsumneurs, we only drink tea during the meal.

    Summer is for easy cruises along the coast, especially in August. In the opposite direction of San Clemente, this out-and-back 200k heads south from Oceanside to Imperial Beach. The lazy summer Sunday is about having a fun cruise by the beaches, escaping the inland heat. Coffee stops are encouraged.

    Despite the easy ride heading south, the northbound journey may offer a slight challenge as the breeze from the north will provide a descent workout.

    The full "harvest" moon will occur on September 10 this year, coinciding with the Chinese Autumn Moon Festival. As such, we are heading up into the mountains to view the full moon on the Boulevard Figure 8 populaire (Hence Infinite Lunacy). If we time it right, we should be able to ascend Kitchen Creek by the light of the full moon. Even if a heat advisory is in place, night time temperature should bring a bit of solace. However, Cleveland National Forest adminstrators may close Kitchen Creek Rd to minimize the threat of forest fires during the fire season. If that happens, then this populaire will be cancelled.

    Though we will have the roads to ourselves at night, animals and unknowing Border Patrol agents may lurk in the dark. As such, I ask that we ride in a group.

    Encinitas, CA 92024

    $20.00

    THIS ROUTE HAS BEEN REVISED FOR SEPTEMBER TO ACCOUNT FOR WEATHER CONDITIONS.

    This is your last chance at an ACP 600k that will get you into the 2nd preregistration group for PBP in 2023 after the 1000/1200 finishers this year pick the prime start group spots. 

    The low registration cost means that this 600k will be self supported: at the start, I will inspect your bikes and give you my kind words; at the finish I will offer my congratulations; more likely I'll offer you a beer than food; in between, you are on your own. Being three 3 200k loops that bring you back to the Encinitas Park and Ride twice on this 600k, you should have access to your car. You are welcome to book a room near the park and ride to change clothes.

    Because of likely heat wave that has become common place in San Diego, the 0500 start allows you to clear finish inland portions so that you can make your way back to the coast. Changing the 2nd loop ensures that your ride to Irvine will be after sunset.

    This route is the 600k version of the San Diego 3 Loops series. The first 200k 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 200k loop will take you north into Orange County as I ran out of flat roads in San Diego County. From Encinitas, you'll return to Coast Hwy and make your way into Carlsbad and Oceanside. You will need to jump on I-5 in order to pass Camp Pendleton. If you have a valid pass base to enter the Marine Corps base, you are welcome to take Vandergrift Blvd and then Stuart Mesa to Las Pulgas, but expect bonus miles and added elevation gain vs the I-5 passage and the base is closed at night to recreational cyclists. When you reach Dana Point, you'll jump on the San Juan Creek river trail and start your trek inland through the various "Lagunas" communities until to reach Irvine. Your return leg will take you onto Moulton Pkwy and then Golden Lantern back to Dana Point, retracing your route back to Encinitas for the finish. You will be riding this section at night on I-5. If you are tired, stop and take a ditch nap. 

    The final 200k loop is a somewhat easy coastal cruise from Encinitas to Coronado. For the procrastenator's edition, you'll start inland toward Rancho Santa Fe and 4S Ranch until you reach the 56 bike path. Making your way back to the coast, you'll climb the UCSD bike path and descend down Gilman Dr to connect to the Rose Canyon and Rose Creek bike paths to Mission Bay. You'll continue on to Coronado and back, returning through Point Loma at the entrance to the Cabrillo Monument and making your way back through La Jolla. To avoid the speeding traffic on Torrey Pines Rd, you'll wind your way through the foot of Mt Soledad to connect up to Via Capri to reach Torrey Pines Rd via Hidden Valley Rd. Returning to UCSD is the last climb before riding along the coast back to Encinitas for the finish.

    You may park your car at the Encinitas Park and Ride where you can return after each loop. There are hotels and motels along the way.  You are responsible for arranging your own lodging. We will not be providing any drop bag service.

    NOTICE: Due to the severe fire season this year, there is a high likelihood that Kitchen Creek Rd may be shut down to minimize access and thus chances of fire in the area, as firefighting resources are spread thin across the West. We will monitor notices announced by the Cleveland National Forest (CNF) continually. If closure is in effect on the the day of this brevet, we will likely reschedule this route to November and plan another route on the same day.

    For reference, here is the CNF''s website announcing road closures: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detailfull/cleveland/alerts-notices/?cid=stelprdb5340229&width=full

    =============================================

    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.
