    Oggi's Sports/Brewhouse
    2562 Laning Rd
    San Diego, California 92106

    $15.00

    This 140k is organized to celebrate the end of a busy 2022 and thank you to all who have taken part. Originally planned as a 200k, reducing the distance is to enable riders to finish by 16:30 just before sunset.

    No registration fee for riders who have:

    • Taken part in at least one 200k or greater brevet; or
    • Taken part in at least two populaires (<200k)

    For others, the registration fee is $15. When you register, you can stop just before submitting payment. I'll be notified and will check the 2022 participation roster and complete your registration.

    This route travels the length of El Camino Real in San Diego County. Starting from Liberty Station, you'll ride up the usual Rose Creek/Rose Canyon bike paths to UCSD before descending down to Sorrento Valley to catch the start of El Camino Real at mile 16. You'll roll through Rancho Santa Fe passing very expensive real estate. At Olivenhain, you'll take a break from a busy section of El Camino Real in "In"-cinitas before reconnecting at Leucadia Blvd to continue the trek. You will note that El Camino Real is rather hilly. Trailblazers relying on beasts of burden were less incentivized to find flatter terrain. The end of El Camino Real will be at mile 44 at the San Luis Rey Bakery and Restaurant located just west of the mission. 

    From the restaurant, you'll begin your ride south. Instead of the usual 76 bike path route to the coast, you'll take the roads through south Oceanside to Carlsbad. The southbound trek will be along the coast. There will be a detour inland starting at the Kook in south Encinitas to reach the recently completed bike path under the I-5 at Manchester Ave. From Solana Beach at the other end of the bike path, you returning to the coast in Del Mar on Jimmy Durante Blvd. After the climb up Torrey Pines to UCSD, the last stretch of the ride will go through Pacific Beach, Mission Bay and Ocean Beach.

    At the finish, the club will provide food at Oggis to celebrate the winter holidays and to prepare for 2023.

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

    San Diego, California 92122

    $15.00

     

    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 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.

    IHOP - Fenton Marketplace
    2169 Fenton Pkwy
    San Diego, California 92108

    $15.00

    This novel 200k is a tour of the 5 major piers and other minor ones in San Diego County. It is designed to challenge the route creator in organizing the "flattest" brevet in San Diego County and for riders who are looking to ease into the PBP qualifying season. Unlike the San Diego Top to Bottom, this 200k starts in the middle of San Diego County in Mission Valley, then spanning north from Oceanside to Imperial Beach.

    After a leisurely breakfast at the IHOP in Fenton Marketplace in Mission Valley, you'll start the brevet traversing on sections of the San Diego River bike path to Mission Bay where you'll begin your ride north to come to the first pier of the day. Taking the usual Rose Creek and Rose Canyon to UCSD and down the I-5 bike path to Sorrento Valley to reach the coast at Del Mar, you'll head up to Oceanside to the Oceanside Pier, famously known as the starting location of the Race Across America each year in June. Cruising on the Strand, you'll start your trek south through the usual beach communities in order to stay on the narrow strip of "flat" roads in San Diego punctuated by the dips carved into the coastal landscape by various rivers, creeks and lagoons. After the Torrey Pines climb, you'll ride by 3 successive ocean piers beginning with the Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier located in the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, UCSD in La Jolla. Next up is the Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach, where a hotel still operates offering rooms and cottages to guests. Riding over the San Diego River into Ocean Beach, you'll arrive at the Ocean Beach Pier, touted as the longest concrete pier on the West Coast at 1,971 feet. Cutting cross Point Loma to San Diego Bay, you'll ride along the beautiful waterfront in Downtown. There you'll pass the lesser piers such as the Broadway Pier, Navy Pier and the other numberous piers hidden from view in the 32nd St Naval Base. The final pier is the Imperial Beach Pier. From IB, you'll make your way back to Mission Valley. Along the San Diego River, you'll finish at Fenton Marketplace. There are plenty of restaurants. 

    There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and taco stands along the route. Riding in an urban setting, the approximity to places for food and water comes at the cost of cars and numerous traffic lights. Be patient and you'll be rewarded with amazing coastal sceneries from Oceanside to Imperial Beach.

    $30.00
    Registration is not open

    This 300k gives riders a chance to circumnavigate the Salton Sea. As the title suggests, it is designed to be fast with only 3,000 feet of total elevation gain and just a handful of traffic lights in Westmoreland, Cochella and Salton City. From the start to Westmoreland, you are on the RAAM route. The flat desert landscape is dotted with ocotillos, cacti and sand, endless miles of sand. Turning left, you'll ride north along the eastern shore of the sea to Coachella, where you'll turn south back to Salton City. Around the sea, you'll be below sea level for the most part. As every rose has its thorns, the 15 mile stretch on the Borrego-Salton Sea Way from Salton City will be a climb on broken road surfaces and strong headwinds. Expect some free dermabrasion treatment as well if the wind kicks up sand. Before sunrise and after sunset, the desert in February will be chilly. Daytime temperature will be nice and cool. But in this era of climate unpredicability, I may be completely wrong in my forecast.

    2 roads leading to Borrego Springs from San Diego are long and twisting (Banner Grade and Montezuma Valley Rd - aka Glass Elevator). From Escondido to Christmas Circle, Google Maps estimates about 1 hour 30 minutes travel time. Should you plan to stay in Borrego Springs before and/or after the brevet, please book early as it is a popular distination for northern snowbirds looking to escape the winter freeze. If you like to stay at an offbeat place, there is the Deserts Sands Vintage RV Park at 277 Palm Canyon Dr, Borrego Springs, CA 92004 (https://desertsandsrvpark.net/) where you can rent out various old school camper trailers at a reasonable price (Don't mention you're part of a randonneuring event: in a prior non-San Diego organized brevet back in 2019, the organizer inadvertantly pissed off the manager). If you have a penchant for clothing-optional swimming pools before or after a brevet, there is the Borrego Valley Inn at 405 Palm Canyon Dr, Borrego Springs, CA 92004 (https://www.borregovalleyinn.com/).

    I have booked a room for the brevet HQ at the Borrego Springs Motel, 2376 Borrego Springs Rd, Borrego Springs, CA 92004 (http://www.borregospringsmotel.com/). The proprietor is Robin Reynolds. The room rate is $95 + 8% tax per night but she requires all bookings to be for 2 nights minimum. The brevet will end at Borrego Springs Motel just a block and a half north of Christmas Circle.

    Here's a list of other motels for your consideration:

    This 200k version of the Salton Sea series ventures out to the Sonny Bono Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge and back. Hence the brevet title for those who remember Sonny and Cher.

    You will head out with the 300k riders to Westmoreland. Desert landscape on both sides, lots of ocotillos and other desert thriving plants. However, you'll ride out to the Sonny Bono Saltion Sea National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center before turning back. Retracing the route, you'll continue straight on Hwy 86 to Salton City before turning west on the Borrego Salton Sea Way. Expect headwinds and possible sandstorms as you climb back to Borrego Springs on a section of fairly crappy roads. It will add flavor to your ride description that you'll post on Strava! Very few traffic lights and only 2 controls between the start and finish. Just a lot of sand.

    Kate Sessions Statue
    699 El Prado
    San Diego, California 92101

    $6.00

    This 100k celebrates 2023 International Women's Day on March 8. Theme of this populaire is paying homage to the women who have established their legacies in San Diego for their efforts in making our beloved hometown "America's Finest City."

    The ride starts on the southwest corner of Balboa Dr and El Prado, just west of the Laurel Street Bridge, by the Kate Sessions statue. Known as the "Mother of Balboa Park", her life's work created this horticultural paradise that also includes theaters and museum, all of which successive generations have come to relax, to explore and to love. You'll ride toward Mission Hills, the Presidio and Mission Bay to connect up to the Rose Creek and Rose Canyon bike paths to UCSD. Descending down the I-5 bike path, you'll ride through Carmel Valley and onto San Dieguito Rd. The first control is the Helen Woodward statue located by the entrance of the Helen Woodward Animal Center. Her life has been devoted animal welfare, resulting in her establishing the animal center which now bears her name. A little further down the road in the Village of Rancho Santa Fe, you'll reach the Lilian Rice statue located in North Village Park by The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. In 1920, she took on the assignment as the lead architect to design Rancho Santa Fe, which became one of the first master planned communities in California. "True beauty lies in simplicity" was her inspiration in bringing the Spanish Revival architecture to this exclusive community.

     

    Turning toward the Pacific Ocean on Linea Del Cielo along the undulating ridgeline, you'll arrive in Solana Beach. There is the Lofty Coffee Cafe control where you may stop for some refreshments. Making your way up Torrey Pines, you'll descend down La Jolla Shores into downtown La Jolla to reach the Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial next to the La Jolla Recreation Center. Many cherished cultural and educational institutions in San Diego are the results of her charitable work and contributions, demonstrating that "The most important and beautiful gift one human being can give to another is, in some way, to make life a little better to live." From La Jolla, you'll continue through Pacific Beach and Mission Beach to climb up Presidio Hill. Your return will be from the east of Balboa Park, riding on El Prado, passing the California Tower and crossing the Laurel St Bridge to the finish by the Kate Sessions statue.

    Weather permitting, San Diego Randonneurs will host a picnic for all finishers by providing food and beverages we may legally serve in the park.

    Bringing back a 2019 brevet route. This ride will start near the border in San Ysidro. 

    Starting from the Best Western Americana Inn in San Ysidro, you'll make your way north along San Diego Bay through Downtown San Diego and Mission Bay to reach Mt Soledad to the Veterans Memorial and the cross to help you warm up.

On Old Hwy 395, you'll continue north to Rainbow to enter Riverside County, passing Temecula and Lake Elsinore. You'll ride through Temescal Valley to reach the Trader Joes in south Corona where you turn around.

You'll ride down the coast through the various North San Diego beach communities of Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar before climbing up Torrey Pines bluff to reach UCSD. Once back in La Jolla, you'll follow the western curve to Pacific Beach and Mission Beach, crossing the Ingraham St bridges over the bay to arrive at the San Diego River bike path. You'll ride through Old Town to avoid the busy section of Pacific Hwy before return to it on Washington St. From there, you'll backtrack on the same roads and bike paths to reach the finish.

    From the start at Angelo’s Burgers in Oceanside, riders will hop on the San Luis Rey River Trail to College Dr and then tackle the first climb up Sleeping Indian Rd to Fallbrook. Descending down to Santa Margarita River, you'll begin a series of climbs on De Luz Rd. This section of Riverside County has very few car traffic on the weekend. Before the drought, avocado groves dominated the hilly landscape. De Luz Rd becomes Rancho California Rd, where you'll enjoy a nice descent into Temecula, riding through the old town center. Over the years, Temecula has become a popular destination for wine tasting as may wineries emerged.

    Leaving Temecula, you'll continue south by climbing up Rainbow Valley Rd to reach Rainbow. After an extended descent on Rice Canyon Rd to Hwy 76, you'll reach the Couser Canyon Rd. Passing a cattle pasture by the San Luis River, your ascent will be under canopies of overhanging avocado tree branches until the top. From Lilac Rd, you'll reach Circle R which will take you back down to Old Hwy 395. The last major climb of the day will be your ride up Twin Oaks Valley Rd. You'll ride through Elfin Forest  and Harmony Grove on the recently repaved road to Escondido, turning left on Del Dios Highway riding west through the Village of Rancho Santa Fe to Del Mar, passing Lake Hodges on your left. The last stretch of the brevet will be up the coast to Oceanside.

    Street parking is available near the start on Windward Wy and Tremont St.

    Start location details will be provided once route is finalized. For now, the plan is to start in Santa Maria. The RWGPS map is provided to interested participants as a preview of the route linking up the 9 California missions that this 600k will pass by.

    Highlights of this route:

    • Between Lompoc and Solvang is "Sideways" country (though we ask that you to remain upright throughout this brevet), as the wineries and restaurants in the area were filming locations for the movie. The ride will climb Harris Grade Rd into Lompoc and then the bucolic road and scenic wineries along Santa Rosa Rd to Solvang.
    • Note that Mission Santa Ynez is in Solvang, not in Santa Ynez, as Mission San Jose is in Fremont, not in San Jose. 
    • From Solvang to Gaviota on the coast the route guides you onto the rural countryside which Alisal Rd runs through to Nojoqui Summit on Hwy 101. As a heads-up, the route will require you to cross the highway at the summit to ride southbound to Gaviota.
    • The route will be on Hwy 101 until Goleta where it will traverse inland through Santa Barbara before returning to the coast toward Ventura.
    • After Venture, the route will turn inland and pass through Saticoy, Santa Paula and Bardsdale before jumping onto Hwy 125 at Piru to Valencia (known as the Heritage Valley), passing Six Flags Magic Mountain before continuing on the South Fork bike trail to Santa Clarita. 
    • After Mission San Fernando, the route will follow along the Angeles National Forest through Tujunga Canyon to Flintridge-Canada and then to the Mission San Gabriel, passing the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Caltech campus and Huntington Library. Expect urban riding through this part of LA County.
    • In Pasadena, the route will pass through "Bungalow Heaven" landmark district, named for the more than 800 small craftsman homes built there from 1900 to 1930.
    • After the overnight control in Rosemead (to be finalized), the route will continue on the Rio Hondo/San Gabriel River Trails to Seal Beach.
    • From Seal Beach, the final stretch to San Diego will follow along the usual coastal route, except for a couple of inland diversions on river trails to reach a couple of missions.
    • The planned finish will be in Mission Valley. Final hotel/motel location to be determined.
    • The finish hotel will be near the Fashion Valley trolly station. You can catch the trolley to the Old Town Station to Santa Fe Station in Downtown to board the Amtrak Surfliner.

    This brevet is organized for randonneurs who are heading to PBP in the 90-hour start groups. It should give you a chance to work out any night start logistics issues before your big endeavor in France.

    Starting from Escondido, you'll make your way to Bonsall before continuing along Old Highway 395 through Rainbow, Temecula and Lake Elsinore to Corona. From Corona, you'll start to ride west on Foothill Parkway and Green River Road before hopping onto a short section of the Santa Ana River Trail, exiting at Gypsum Canyon Road. Not far down the road you'll come to Santiago Canyon Road, a long stretch of road rolling through the backcountry of Orange County. You'll re-enter the suburban landscape at Trabuco Canyon Road, making your way south toward San Clemente at Ave Pico, where you will ride south along the Pacific Coast with the wind behind you, passing the soon to be dismantled San Onofre Nuclear Generation Station (SONGS), San Onofre State Beach and Camp Pendleton. For the finish, you'll ride down to Encinitas before making your way back to Escondido through San Marcos.

    Parking is available in the mall. Plenty of restaurants and markets in the area. Between mid-night and sunrise (07:00), most businesses will be closed except for gas station convenience stores. If time and staffing permit, we'll organize a staffed control to provide food and drinks.
