What are (in your opinion) the best places to go road riding within, say, 60-90 minute driving range from San Diego? I'm looking for rides that are 40-60 (+?) miles in length, involve climbing of some sort, and have minimal traffic. I've done both Palomar and Camp Pendleton on previous trips and am looking for something new.

Really? No one else has a favorite ride in the San Diego area they want to share?
5000+ feet of climbing is fine as long as there aren't extended (i.e. miles) periods where the grade is absurd ...

All my favorites were burned out in the fires :(:( Palomar, Highland Valley Road, Couser Canyon, Rice Valley, etc. They're all still ridable but far less scenic I fear.
Check out Bikely (http://www.bikely.com/) and search for routes by area (Escondido, Oceanside, Fallbrook, etc) Ther are many to choose from and you can check the elevation profiles to find ones that fit your goals.
