|The only club in that area I specifically know of is the Vintage Bicycle Association, run by CyclArt in Vista. They're on the web as
Drop by for a chat. I'm sure they know all the good road and racing clubs around, plus you'll probably get the tour of some of the best bike paint jobs in the world, and see some amazing old hardware.
The other group of racers I know of are the trackies down at the San Diego Velodrome, in the Balboa Park area. Again, not exactly what you're looking for, but I know some of those guys roadrace, and legendary coach "Eddie B." teaches there. They have a website, easily found with a search engine. Saturday mornings are "open sessions", so you could take your roadbike down there, ride it on the track, and meet them.
I know there's some roadrace training going on around Mission Bay. A weekend ride along the PCH will reveal the occasional shaved-leg roadie whizzing by. If you can catch 'em, you've earned the right to ask if they're in a club.
