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" as you will pass a fair number of the famous surf spots listed in the lyrics.

    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. To register for this ride, please click on this link to PCH Randonneurs' ride registration page: BRM 100th Anniversary Ride

    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.

    $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.
