    Social Gathering Before/After



    This populaire ventures through San Diego's rich baseball history starting from Alesmith in Miramar. Heading out on Pomerado Rd in Scripps Ranch, you'll reach Ted Willams Pkwy (named after the famous San Diego native who was the last MLB player with a batting average over 400). Continuing through Poway, you'll reach Poway Lake and the Tony Gwynn Memorial. Known affectionately as "Mr Padre" for his life-long career with our team, he has set deep roots in the Poway community where he and his family lived throughout his life. To honor his Powegian connection, the community erected the Tony Gwynn Memorial at Lake Poway, where you will stop and check in as a control. You will continue your adventure south to reach North Park, passing by a house at 4121 Utah St where Ted Williams grew up and the "Ted Willams Field" in North Park Community Park, the Little League field where the legendary slugger started his career before becoming "The Splendid Splinter" making baseball history with the Boston Red Sox. The return route will be through Linda Vista and Kearny Villa Rd, finishing back at Alesmith. To celebrate our populaire, the game of baseball and the two legends who represent San Diego, we'll relax to the world famous .394 Pale Ale, named after Tony Gwynn's season ending batting average in 1994, the year he was projected to surpass the 400 mark last achieved by Ted Williams but was unfortunately denied due to the players' strike that shortened the season.

    San Diego, CA 92116


    Social Gathering Before/After



    Start location will be at Kensington Park on the Kensington Dr side of the park. Finish location where we will meet for our post ride gathering will be at Clem's Tap House located behind Clem's Barrel House. Street parking is available.

    The Stowe Trail connects Santee to Sycamore Canyon Preserve. From Kensington Brewing, a quick jaunt on the I-15 bike path to Mission Gorge to reach Mast Blvd. After getting on Stowe Trail and reaching Goodan Ranch, you'll climb up to to Sycamore Canyon Rd where the trail ends. Riding through the heart of Poway, you'll connect back up to the Duck Pond trail along the Penasquitos Creek. At Black Mountain Rd, you'll head start your trek south and west to reach the "Secret Route to Sorrento Valley" trail and then the train track trail that connects University City to the start of the Rose Canyon bike path. Passing along the eastern show of Mission Bay, you'll climb up on Juan St through Old Town to each the Upas St trail where you'll cross Hwy 163 to continue on Upas St. Before the finish, you'll "parade" on the newly created "30th bike path".

    For this route, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you obtain a BASE PASS from MCAS Miramar. There is a short section on Stowe Trail that crosses into base property. Though not usually patrolled, (h/b)ikers have been fined or have their bikes confiscated by the Marine Corps Police for not having a base pass. If you are planning to ride without a base pass, you assume the risks.

    Below is Dave's summary of his experience obtaining the pass recently. It appears to be much simpler than described on their application form. PLEASE READ BELOW CAREFULLY.

    The Marine Corps Air Station gobbled up this historic trail decades ago, and over the years people have been not-so-legally using the trail. After years of negotiation there was finally a permitting process put in place to allow for use of the trail. Information about how to obtain a permit and required forms can be found here: https://www.miramar.marines.mil/Resources/StoweTrail/

    I obtained my permit last week, and was pleasantly surprised to find the process was not quite as involved as is outlined on the MCAS Miramar site. Rather than requiring multiple trips to the permit office, I was given a permit at the time I visited. Here is what I experienced:

    • I filled out and printed the application at home. You will need the application, two forms of ID (see next bullet point), and a blank copy of the liability waiver form.
    • I had filled in the information for driver's license and passport, and brought both with me. Once in the office, though, I was asked to fill in my SSN and for my driver's license. I was never asked for my passport. Your mileage may vary.
    • When you get to the base, there are two lanes of traffic. Be in the right hand lane, as once you tell the guard you are there for a Stowe Trail pass you will make a quick right into the parking lot.
    • I arrived at about 8:15 Monday morning. There was only one person ahead of me. When I left, there were about 5 people waiting to enter the building.
    • The wait time after handing over the application and waiver was about 5 minutes. I was then fingerprinted and my picture taken. Then maybe another 5 minutes before getting my permit.
    • Unfortunately the permit is only good for a year from date of issuance.

    Kitchen Creek 200
    Major's Diner 28765 Old Hwy 80
    San Diego County, United States 3984

    $10.00

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

    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. After carrying your bike over the gate, the climb turns to a steady 5-6% grade until you reach Sunrise Highway, with magnificent views and minimal cars to contend with. After a stop at the Laguna Mountain Lodge, the route continues along the ridge. On sections of the highway, you pass dramatic views of the edge where the alpine landscape of the Laguna Mountain rapidly falling into the Borrego desert. You make your way to Wynola just passing Julian before returning on the same stretch of road toward Lake Cuyamaca. Descending on Highway 79 to Descanco, you'll have to negotiate your last climb over Guatay before returning to the finish at Pine Valley. Over the distance of this brevet, you will have 0 traffic lights and 5 stop signs to deal with.

    On Friday evening before the brevet, an email will be sent to distribute details on how this 200k will be organized to all participants who registered.
