Does anyone know of San Diego evening rides that aren't restricted to bike club members? Last year I believe there was a ride on Wednesday evenings that began in Mission Valley.

Thanks for your help,

Off the top of the head, there's Fiesta Island on Thursdays. Check the Ranchos website for their ride (Tue/Wed) in Encinitas.

There are also a lot of daytime rides: Sorrento Valley PBS Tue/Thurs at noon. Wed Alpine ride from the Stadium. Tues AM sprint workouts at Fiesta Island. Wed Reynolds ride in Carlsbad, and probably a few that I don't know about.

I'm doing hill repeats up Torry Pines if you want to join me! ;)

I figure that I'm allergic to hills. They make me breathe heavy, break out in a sweat, and make my legs hurt.

If the biggest hill I ever have to climb again is the banking at the track, I'll be happy.

That's funny!

San Diego county is amazingly hilly! I only moved here a few months ago -I had no idea. I'm a much better hill climber than I used to be because of it. But hill repeats are dumb! I don't think I'll bother doing them again - better to just do a hilly ride - which most are around here!

It does seem that you're always going up a hill around here. About the longest flat I know of is the Del Mar to Carlsbad 101 route. But the hills do make you a better rider, no doubt about it. I guess the hills are things you just love to hate.
Loooove that 101!MShaw

That's basically the ride I did today: ride down El Camino Real from O'side to La Costa, meet SDBC, ride south on the 101 to the top of Torrey Pines, then back up the coast to O'side.

Let's see: good scenery (you should have seen them!), flat-ish, and sunshine all the way north. Hoo boy, I don't miss the Washington DC area.
