    Rouleur Brewing Co - North Park
    2899 University Ave
    San Diego, California 92104

    $10.00

    Social Gathering Before/After



    Ride date has been changed to Saturday, October 23 in order to avoid the madding crowd that will swarm University Ave in North Park for a marathon on Sunday, October 24.

    This route will start from Rouleur Brewing Company in North Park. The places you'll stop through will include the entrance to the Cabrillo National Monument, Mt Soladad, Old Town, Liberty Station, Pepper Park and USS Midway. Total elevation gain is estimated to be around 2,400 feet and just over 100 km.

      

    This populaire is called "Ol' School" for the following reasons:

    • There is no electronic route to download to your computers. Navigation will be by paper cue sheet which will be handed out to you at the start. You may use your computer to determine your mileage for each turn and control location. Suggest you invest in a alligator-clip set up on your handle bars or follow Osvaldo.
    • There will be no electronic proof of passage. You will be issued a brevet card listing all of the controls. Some controls require you to obtain receipts from designated merchants. Some will require you to answer questions about a landmark or sign you will pass. There may be one control where a volunteer will sign or stamp your brevet card. How quaint!
    • You may form teams to navigate together, though results will be recorded for each individual rider. You may use your google map during ride if you need help. 

    When you finish, you will sign your brevet cards in whatever state of "tatterness" after 100km and hand in the crumpled receipts and the info questions answered in the most illegible chicken scratches possible. 

    There will also be a competition for how old school you are gonna be for this populaire. Points (to be determined later) will be awarded for:

    • Bike frame material (steel is real).
    • Type of shifters (we're down for downtube).
    • Frame pumps, not cartidges (bonus points for Silca or Zefal pumps).
    • Gearing (the less the merrier). Fixie bikes reign supreme.
    • Type of jersey (wool is cool). Bonus points for any edition of the San Diego Randonneurs wool jerseys.
    • Cat-Eye or any comparable non-GPS bike computer that measures distance by the rotation of the spinning wheel.

    The winner or winners will receive a prize to be determined.

    Registration will include coffee and light snacks at the start and staffed control with provisions during the populaire.

    1. Join RUSA at https://rusa.org/cgi-bin/memberjoin_GF.pl. Your membership will be valid until December 31, 2022.
    2. Once you receive your 5 digit RUSA number, signing up for San Diego Randonneurs is free.

    $10.00

    The start is at Messhuga Coffee in Mission Hills. Start time will be at 08:00 to allow for the coffee social around 07:00 to kick off the autumn "Coffeeneuring" populaire with a good cup of coffee and pastries before rolling out into the cooler autumn breeze.

    This populaire is a cruise along San Diego's coastal communities with gentle and not so gentle climbs to make the day worth while. From Mission Hills, you ease your way up to UCSD before descending down past Torrey Pines State Reserve to Ki's Restaurant in Cardiff, where a coffee, though not mandatory, is highly recommended. Turning south from Ki's, you start the "Blues" by first climbing Torrey Pines on road inside the park, followed by the renown "Via Capri" climb to Mt Soledad. When reaching Ocean Beach, you'll scale up Hill St to Cabrillo Monument, returning along Harbor Dr. Reynard Wy is the final climb before reaching the finish at Messuga Coffee.

    Post ride Huddle can be at the Huddle on Goldfinch.

    McDonald's - Del Mar
    2705 Via De La Valle,
    Del Mar, CA 92014

    $10.00

    This route is a modified version of the original "Honey Springs Ain't Sweet." For this route, the distance has been reduced from 229km to 201km. In addition, the Hwy 67 climb from Lakeside to Scripps Poway Pkwy has been replaced by the 52 bike path climb to Kearny Mesa. But rest assured that Honey Springs Rd, Lyons Valley Rd, Japatul Rd and Mountain View Rd out of Harbison Canyon climbs are still intact for all to enjoy/suffer in preparation for the Thanksgiving feasting. The hope is after finishing this brevet, you'll make room for additional servings of turkey and pie on that day with family.

    This brevet will be rider led and fully self supported. There is no plan at this time to staff any control. All controls (except for the Lyons Valley Rd/Japatul Rd intersection control) are located at stores where you can purchase water and food.

    At the start, you are required to have both headlights and rear lights and reflective vests for the high likelihood of riding after sunset.

    If you are joining us for the first time, you will need:

    1. Join RUSA at https://rusa.org/cgi-bin/memberjoin_GF.pl. Your membership will be valid until December 31, 2022.

    San Diego, California 92122

    $25.00

    San Diego's Randonneurs' new year begins on the day when we host the Rainbow 200k. This brevet route explores the north inland sections of San Diego County. Leaving Doyle Park in University City, you ride through UC San Diego campus and descend down Torrey Pines before making your eastward progression. Your ride out will consist of several climbs such as Del Dios, Circle R, Couser Canyon and Rice Canyon before reaching Rainbow. After a stop for lunch at the Rainbow Market, you make your way westward riding through Fallbrook and Bonsall, then proceeding on the San Luis Rey bike path that parallels Highway 76 along the San Luis Rey River. After reaching Oceanside, you now proceed south and ride through several San Diego beach communities such as Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar, passing the statue informally called the Kook and the Del Mar Race Tracks, seeing the waves of the Pacific Ocean lapping the coast as you ride by. After your last bit of climbing passing Torrey Pines State Preserve, you arrive Doyle Park for the finish.

    RWGPS route map is preliminary.
