Ride Information:

  • We will take the freeway on this ride, as Camp Pendleton is no longer renewing base passes.  Traffic is usually moving slower than riders on Saturday mornings, so it feels much safer.   The ride leaders will talk about safety before the ride.
  • We can do the 1st bathroom stop when we get to Oceanside, or the last bathroom in San Onofre if people need to go before.
  • There is a liquor store/deli that has great sandwiches (split or order half sandwich) in Del Mar after we descend Torrey Pines where we usually stop for a 15 -20 minute rest. Some nice benches to sit on, but no bathroom there, but a Starbucks about 25 yards further north.
  • Another bathroom break in Oceanside before getting back on the freeway or plenty of other places to stop if we need to beforehand and also when we get to San Onofre.

Alternate Rain Date:  If rain is predicted, we will not ride.  We will move the century to the following Saturday, January 6th instead.
