    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 return to Doyle Park for the finish.

    RWGPS route map is preliminary. Final route will be published a week before the brevet after the workers ride.

    This year's Ocean Beach 200k/300k series, starting from Pizza Port Ocean Beach, will head up to Fallbrook. After a short spin on the San Diego River to reach Fashion Valley, you'll climb out of the river valley via Ulric St, continuing on Linda Vista Rd and Kearny Villa Rd passing MCAS Miramar. Through Mira Mesa, you'll ride on Black Mountain Rd descending into and climbing out of the Penasquitos Canyon, making your way pass Black Mountain and 4S Ranch to reach Lake Hodges's eastern shore where you will cross into Escondido. Taking Bear Valley Rd through Escondido to avoid the busy city center, you'll reach your first significant climb on Valley Center Rd into Valley Center. After a quick stop at the control, you'll continue on Lilac Rd and West Lilac Rd before making your descent into the San Luis Rey River Valley on Old Hwy 395. You'll turn into the Pala Mesa Resort entrance to climb Tecolote Dr and then Ranger Rd to avoid the speeding traffic on Old Hwy 395 to reach Mission Rd followed by Live Oak Park Rd and Gum Tree Ln before returning on Mission Rd into Fallbrook. Leaving Fallbrook, you'll be diverted to Olive Hill Rd before making your way to Hwy 78 at Bonsall. Making your way pass Mission San Luis Rey and El Camino Real, you'll reach the Pacific through Carlsbad as you start your southbound trek. Instead of Torrey Pines climb, you'll be diverted to the Sorrento Valley/UCSD bike path to connect up to Gilman Dr. From Rose Canyon and Rose Creek bike paths, you'll ride pass Crown Point by Mission Bay before crossing the San Diego River estuary and back to Ocean Beach for the finish.

    Parking is available in the neighborhood around Pizza Port. For the 200k participants, you may also park in Rob Field parking lot (the park closes at 22:00).

    For those continuing on for the 300k, you will return to the San Diego River bike trail briefly before your climb through Old Town and the Presidio to reach Mission Hills to avoid the traffic on Pacific Hwy and Barnett Ave. As you pass Little Italy, you'll ride on Pacific Hwy to Harbor Dr, where you'll continue south, passing the 32nd St Naval Station. In National City, you'll be on the Bayshore Bikeway, which will take you to the southern tip of San Diego Bay and then up the Silver Strand where you'll reach Coronado, the "crown"ing highlight of the 300k. Making your way back down the Silver Strand and Imperial Beach, you'll sweep around the airport on Barrett Ave, Lytton St and Chatworth Blvd to start your final ascent to the entrance of the naval base at the end of Catalina Blvd. The descent down Point Loma and back to Ocean Beach will make it an easy finish when you return to Pizza Port.

    Parking is available in the neighborhood around Pizza Port. For the 300k participants, you may not want to park in Robb Field.

    All 300k participants must have working front and rear lights on their bicycles and reflective vests or comparable clothing as required under RUSA Rules Article 10. An inspection will be conducted to ensure compliance for your safety out on the route.

    In 2022, we'll mix things up a bit for variety.

The route continues on south towards Rainbow and into more climbs on Couser Canyon Rd to Lilac Rd and Circle R Rd.

After a short climb on El Camino Del Norte, you'll ride through the posh neighborhood of Rancho Santa Fe on Paseo Delicias and along the Linea Del Cielo ridge line down into Solana Beach. A short jaunt down to Del Mar along the race track where the "Surf meets the Turf" before making your way back to the finish in Oceanside.

    Registration is not open

    This 400k brevet is on! Still working on the logistics but will open registration in the next month after plans are finalized for the bus and bike transport back to the start. The $45 ride fee is for the ride administration and support. For particants who will need a bus ride and the bike transport back to Encinitas, the cost will be separately calculated and split among riders.

    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 an 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.

    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.

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. 

    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.

    1st in a series of 200k brevets that will have around 11,000 feet in total elevation gain for those looking to experience what an SR-600 is like.

    The Toughrider 200k route starts in Bonsall and heads north to De Luz. But at the intersection with Camaron Rd, you turn left to reach the famous/infamous Los Gatos Rd, where the kitty cats that anything but cute. Just under a mile, this climb boasts sections with grades in excess of 25%. The 2 two times I attempted this climb, I was forced to change into my feet gear and walked up this road. But after that moment of intense suffering, you'll be rewarded with a ride on quiet roads as you make your way further north. You'll eventually reach the Cleveland Forest Rd becoming Tenaja Truck Train that turns into a 4.5 mile section of gravel and dirt. Once you reach S Main Divide road which is paved, you'll meander your way to Hwy 74 (Ortega Hwy) where you take on a screaming descent to Lake Elsinore. Returning to Fallbrook again through Sandia Creek Rd, you head east and north again to Pechanga Pkwy where you will connect up to Pala Pechanga Rd. Then you'll ride on another short section of dirt on Lilac Rd just off of Hwy 76. After the last climb on the route, you'll descend on Circle R and return to the start on Camino Del Rey.

    WARNING - There are long sections that are remote and have little to no services (from Fallbrook to Lake Elsinore, Pechanga to Pala and Pala to Old Hwy 395). You will need to manage that Occam's edge of just enough extra water to get you through these sections.

    If rain or heat wave, will reschedule this ride to a later date in fall.
