Here are some routes we recommend:
Coastal Rides: You can spin up the coast for as long as you want. The only noticable climbing you’ll encounter is Torrey Pines, near campus.
Here’s our main three rides:
About a 20 mile cruise up to VG’s Donuts.
A 30 mile trip up the coast. Elfin Forest branches off the coast here.
San Clemente Century
Venturing Inland: Not enough San Diego riders veer far from the coast. If you want longer hills and varied terrain, you’re going to have to. Here are some of our favorites.
A solid 45 mile cruise. Perfect for tempo miles.
A nice ride with rolling hills. The route of the Swami’s Saturday ride.
One of the best rides in the San Diego area. This one’s got it all. About 75 miles.
A grueling ride out to the top of Palomar (at 5240 ft!) and back. ~115 miles.
