    $10.00

    Kicking off our Rouleur Award series (see link for award details) with the inaugural 100k. All sub 200k populaires will start and finish at one of the two Rouleur Brewing Co's locations (Carlsbad and North Park).

    This 100k populaire will start from Rouleur Brewing in North Park. The route will be an easy urban meandering, passing by the usual stops for riders familiar with city riding (Cabrillo Monument entrance, Mount Soledad via Nautilus St, Fiesta Island, Liberty Station and along San Diego Bay through Downtown). Given the urban setting, expect traffic lights to slow you down. The purpose of this route is to help new randonneurs to become acquainted with controls, navigation and all the usual chores involved. If you have a vintage steel frame with all the accoutrements, this route is perfect for an old school ride.

    As the introductory populaire, the route stays on the tame coastal roads. In the next 2 populaires, you'll appreciate that San Diego County is hill country by the sea dominated by rollers, hills and mountains not far to the east.

    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.

    Lowes - Carlsbad
    2519 Palomar Airport Rd
    San Diego County, United States 92008

    $45.00

    The start location has been MOVED to Lowes Center in Carlsbad at the corner of Palomar Airport Rd and El Camino Real.

    Route History - 30 years ago, a couple of Poway Unified School District educators started an annual tradition for local 5th graders and their parents to ride across California over a 7-day period as a rites of passage experience (see RAC History). Over spring break, the participating students and parents would start from the Colorado River, riding between 30-50 miles each day and camping overnight. On the final day, they would finish at Moonlight Beach and mark their completion by dipping the front wheels of their bicycles in the Pacific Ocean.

    In 2020, my son and I were signed up and training for that annual ride until the Great Pandemic scuttled that endeavor. My son was overjoyed. I accepted the lost opportunity. However, the route, being around 250 miles, presented a unique randonneuring opportunity. The randonneur version of this tradition will start in Encinitas, finishing in Yuma, Arizona. After negotiating up the climb to Julian through Elfin Forest, Highland Valley, Ramona and Santa Ysabel, the back half of the brevet will be a descent down Banner Pass and the desert tailwind pushing the riders through Imperial County.

    Brevet logistics:

    1. Starting location has been moved to the Lowes center (2515 Palomar Airport Rd, Carlsbad, 92008). Parking is available in front of Lowes.
    2. If you are traveling to the start by train, you will need to transfer from Amtrak at Oceanside Station to the North County Coaster commuter train in order to reach to Carlsbad-Poinsettia Station.
    3. The following hotels are near the start:
      • Homewood Suites, 2223 Palomar Airport Rd, Carlsbad, CA 92011
      • Hampton Inn, 2229 Palomar Airport Rd, Carlsbad, CA 92011
      • Holiday Inn, 2725 Palomar Airport Rd, Carlsbad, CA 92009
      • Staybridge Suites, 2735 Palomar Airport Rd, Carlsbad, CA 92009
    4. Each rider is allowed 1 drop bag for pick up at the finish in Yuma. The bag tagged with your name that is visible from the outside must be no larger than 12”X12”X24” that can be securely contain your personal items during transport. We will not accept grocery bags or any large luggage.
    5. During the brevet, the control at Hugh T. Osborne Lookout at mile 192.7 will be staffed. If possible, we will also patrol the section between the control and I-8 after dark.
    6. For your return to San Diego:
      • Pick up by family. If possible, plan a family trip in Arizona after the brevet. With your bike in tow, there are several permanents to choose in the Tucson area.
      • Car rental. You can reserve a vehicle from Avis in Yuma (3.1 miles from the Radisson Yuma) for a one-way journey. Rental cost before taxes and topping off gas ranges from $260-$290. If you share the ride, the cost can be split. On Sunday morning, we will shuttle riders to the Avis office at Yuma International Airport to pick up your rental vehicle. When you reach Carlsbad, you can return the vehicle to the Avis office located at McClellan Palomar Airport just 0.9 miles away from Lowes. 
      • Train. There is the Sunset Limited/Texas Eagle train departing Sunday night at 23:49 from Yuma, arriving at Los Angeles Union Station at 5:35 Monday morning.

    We will not be arranging a chartered bus.

    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.

    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 is 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 Encinitas. 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. The 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.

    The final 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. 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 on Laguna Canyon Rd to Laguna Beach. Once you see the Pacific Ocean, you'll ride on  the coastal rollers back to Dana Point, descending down Cove Rd to reach the scenic harbor before retracing your outbound route back to Encinitas for the finish.

    The overnight stop will be at the Days Inn. You may choose the Days Inn or the Best Western right up the hill with more stately amenities for your overnight lodging.If you are checked in before the start and stay until the finish, you can leave your overnight bag in your room or you can drop off your overnight bag with the organizer for pick up after the first or second loop. You are responsible for booking your own overnight lodging. If you would like a roommate to share the cost, an email distribution list will be created to support your arrangements. The floor of the ride HQ room may be made available based on space allowance for randonneurs who want to rough it. Keep in mind, serving riders arriving and leaving is priority over your need for quiet space. 

    To the start by car: If you are booking a room at the Days Inn or Best Western for the overnight control, you may park at their lots as hotel guests. If not a guest, 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.
