SLOW PACED RIDE 15 miles on HWY 56 Bike Path in Sorrento Valley

FAST PACED RIDE 35 to 40 mile loop along North County Coast

 

Both rides will start at the West end of the HWY 56 bike path at the Carmel Country Road exit.  The 15 mile ride will take the bike path east approximately 7.5 miles and then turn around and come back on the same path.  This ride will take about 1 ½ hours depending on the pace of the group so this ride is for people who are not serious bike riders but those who are used to 1+ hour workouts.  This ride is 100% on a bike path so you will not have to share the road with cars and really cannot get lost.  The bike path is also mostly flat with a few hills on the first part of the ride that you can enjoy going down on the way back.

The fast paced ride will start at the same place as the other ride but when the bike path hits Black Mountain Road we will head north and make our way to downtown Rancho Santa Fe. From there we will make our way to the coast and then head north up to Carlsbad.  Then we will turn around and go south to the top of the Torrey Pine hill, then back down the hill and back down the bike path where we started.  This ride is for people who ride on regular basis and are used to doing 40 mile rides.  The pace of the group might be 18-20 mph but it will depend on the strength of the riders in our group.     

NOTE Helmets are MANDATORY on all RockMTB rides NO EXCEPTIONS. 
This includes EVERYONE! The person who left their helmet on the table at home... Please dont put us in the unfortunate position of not letting you ride.  We care deeply about everyones health and have seen too many examples of why helmets are needed.

What to bring:1. Helmet, of course. No helmet, No ride
2. Seasonal clothing.
3. Food.
4. Water -  at least 50 oz, 80 oz is better.
5. Dont forget to prep your bike the night before. Pump air in the tires, lube the chain, and test the brakes.
6. Spare tube or patch kit
7. Prayer

Directions:The starting point will be close to where the highway 56 meets the 5 freeway.  So make your way to highway 56 in Sorrento Valley and exit Carmel Creed Rd and go south.  Your first left will be Tang Dr. and we will park along that street.  If you get lost or have any questions about the ride you can call Kyle at 858-663-0190.
