After a last minute re-route last year due to the North County fires, we are returning to the "O"riginal route this year!
"O"MG, this ride is how long?!
All the way to "O"ceanside and back?!
"O" hell no you are not making us climb Torrey at mile 82!
"O", thank god it's over!
"O" yes, I'm ready to kill it on ALC!
Get ready for the long one! This ride will take up us the fabulous San Diego coast from Mission Bay to Oceanside where we then turn inland and travel along the San Luis Rey River Trail. We will head southeast through Vista & San Marcos and into Escondido, where we'll stop for lunch before turning back west. We'll head toward the coast via Del Dios Hwy (you surely know this part of the route by now!), and once back at the coast in Solana Beach, we will turn south and travel back to Mission Bay.
**There will be an optional 4.5 mile loop around Fiesta Island for those who want to make this a full century ride!! "O" come on... you know you want to!
