Remote Ride: Oceanside Harbor, North San Diego


Meetup at 7:45am.

Roll at 8am sharp.

Start is at Oceanside Harbor (See location pin drop). We will head east on the San Luis Rey bike trail. Then make our way north starting with about a 2.25 mile climb up Sleeping Indian Road. We will then have some rolling hills continuing to Rainbow where we will have our first rest stop at Rainbow Oaks Country Market at mile 28. We then have a fun descent through Rice Canyon before a beautiful 3.5 mile climb up Couser Canyon Road. Then a little downhill to Lilac Road and heading south with a few more rolling hills and descending past the Yellow Deli where there is one more short climb of about a mile before we descend our way back east and back onto the San Luis Rey bike trail to Oceanside.

IMPORTANT!!! Bring enough nutrition to support a 4-5 hour solid ride time, as we will be in a rural area. The Yellow Deli is closed on Saturdays, and there are only a couple small markets available after, that are sometimes closed.
Fill your water bottles at our mile 28 Rainbow Oaks Country Market rest stop.
ALSO, make sure you have backup tubes, CO2 and a multi-tool.
*Please download the route and ride with a buddy. This is not a supported ride.
