    Get me there
    Major's Diner
    28765 Old Hwy 80
    Pine Valley, California 91962

    $10.00

    Osvaldo's creation to start the summer right with an audacious route to climb Mt Laguna and Palomar Mountain in a single 200k. A good calorie burner day before the Memorial Day BBQs and beers with family.

    The brevet starts in Pine Valley by Major's Diner. From the get go you'll climb up Sunset Hwy to Mount Lagune, soaking in the spectacular views of the alpine to desert landscape as you follow along the road toward Julian. Your climb continues on Hwy 79 until you reach Julian, where you'll make your descent to Santa Ysabel continue north on Hwy 79 until the intersection with Hwy 76, where you'll turn left. After passing Lake Henshaw, you'll reach East Grade Rd, where you'll begin your climb on Palomar Mountain. Reaching the Palomar Mountain General Store where you can refill your water bottles and enjoy a quick snack, you turn on South Grade where you'll be descending. Be careful of your speed on the switchbacks. Once you arrive at the intersection with Hwy 76, you'll proceed eastward back to Hwy 79, passing Lake Henshaw. Just before climbing into Julian, you'll turn at Pine Hill Rd, where you will make your way on quiet mountain roads to Engineer Rd, which will take you to Lake Cuyamaca. Passing the Stonewall Peak camp grounds, you'll make your penultimate descent to Descanso and the final short climb to Guatay before reaching the finish at Pine Valley.

    San Marcos, CA 92069

    $25.00

    If you can't make it to the Summer Solstice Missions 300k on June 20, Ursa Minor is an opportunity to ride on some of the same roads. Route will be updated to change the start location. The brevet's ride leader, Osvaldo, will also be participating in the event. The start and finish will not be staffed. Osvaldo will arrange proof of passage and finish time confirmation with riders.

    Starting from San Marcos, you'll make your way out to Del Dios Highway, passing Lake Hodges and then through the posh neighborhood of Rancho Santa Fe along Linea Del Cielo. When you reach Solana Beach, you'll make your way north along the coast through all the icon beach communities mentioned in Beach Boys songs. After Oceanside, you'll jump on the Interstate 5 to the Las Pulgas Ave exit before continuing on miles of bike paths. When you arrive at San Juan Capistrano in Orange County, you'll start your return ride back to Oceanside, where you'll get on the 76 bike path and start your ride east, passing through Bonsall before reaching Old Highway 395, where you will start your final miles south to the finish.

    Missions 300k start/finish - Coronado Brewing
    1205 Knoxville St
    San Diego, California 92110

    $35.00

    On the longest day of the year, it is only appropriate to celebrate with a long day of riding. As this year's summer solstice is on a Sunday, it would be wrong not to organize a brevet, especially after what seems like the longest night we went through during the pandemic. During "June Gloom", temperature will be kept comfortable. If inland temperature is projected to be hot, then the route to reach the cost before noon so that you will on the coast for the rest of the brevet.

     

    Highlight of the Mission 300k are:

    • This route will reach 3 missions (Missions San Diego, San Luis Rey and San Juan Capistrano)
    • The start/finish has been moved to Coronado Brewing in the Morena district near Sea World
    • All the significant climbing will be in the first 70 miles of the brevet
    • The inland trek will include Highland Valley Road and Bandy Canyon Road through San Diego's wine country, descending into the San Pasqual Valley before climbing Lake Wohlford Road to Bates Nut Farm in Valley Center, where we'll plan to have a quick lunch for riders.
    • The 2nd half of the brevet will be along the coast to San Juan Capistrano and back
    • Instead of the usual Rose Canyon bike path, you'll make an excursion through La Jolla and Pacific Beach

     

    Sunset is at 19:59 on solstice day. Riders who completes this brevet before sunset (14 hours 18 minutes) will beat Helios, the Greek sun god, before he finishes his ride across the sky. They will be recognized with receiving a tube of sun block and can claim "I have crushed Helios" for the year.

    Summer is for easy cruises along the coast. From Oceanside to Imperial Beach, this out-and-back 200k is about having a fun day out by the beaches, escaping the inland heat. Coffee stops are encouraged.

    Come join PCH and San Diego Randonneurs for a celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the first allure libre 200k brevet.  If COVID conditions permit, we will have a celebratory picnic in the park at the end of the ride.  This day is a big deal for the ACP- they plan to have special commemorative medals for all randonneurs who ride a 200k on this day.

    Here is some history from Bill Bryant:   A little background-- The Audax Club Parisien was founded in November of 1904 to participate in the new "audax" 200k endurance rides that were starting to take place. "Audax" signified always riding in a group at about 16-18 kph with a road captain who kept the group together the entire time, and from going too fast. The rides often lasted from dawn to dusk and were fairly popular around the Paris region. Upon a successful completion of the ride, participants were awarded a certificate or diploma (brevet in French) for their athletic feat-- no small thing in a time of dirt roads and cobblestones and fairly primitive bicycles and cycling clothes and equipment

    Over time some of the riders began to itch to go faster than the steady audax pace, others wanted to also include audax hiking activities with the group cycling, while others wanted the club to remain true to its audax group cycling format. Club meetings became pretty heated affairs and in the summer of 1921 it all exploded. A majority of the ACP members voted to start doing "allure libre" or free-pace brevets that allowed riders to choose their own pace so long as they stayed inside the minimum and maximum speeds, and they could ride alone or in a group-- the same as we do today. The audax cyclists angrily decamped and formed their own organization, as did the hiking contingent.

    So, there was no more "audax" in the Audax Club Parisien. On Sunday, September 11, 1921 the ACP held its first free-pace brevet of 200 km. The route was a big loop that went west and south of Paris to Dreux, Chartres, and then back to Paris. Twenty-six randonneurs and randonneuses completed the ride, arriving at intervals back in Paris. Brevet #1 was issued that day, starting a continuous string of numbered brevets that we still earn today. The free-pace randonneuring begun that day eventually spread through France in the 1920s and -30s, around the globe starting in the 1970s, and here we are in the 21st century, still out earning our diplomas while choosing to ride our own pace and how many people we want to ride with. This is the formula of the Brevets de Randonneurs Mondiaux, or BRM that you see on the front of brevet cards sanctioned by the ACP.

    Route- TBA.  It will probably include Santiago Canyon and lots of coastal Orange County riding.

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

    $10.00
    Registration is not open

    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.
