RAAM routes

I know about the RAAM Races, but what is the exact route or does it change?

What is the exact start and finish points?

it's published on their site. When someone I know was riding it, I would look at his Spot tracker and go to google street view and see what it looked like there.

The route changes from year to year, sometimes drastically. The last five or six years the changes have been minor. They have a really good relationship in Oceanside for the start so I don't see that changing much in the coming years. If anything major changes it will be in the finish but that looks good for the near future as well. Next year will be very similar to this year with the usual minor changes...

The very first (called "The Great American Bicycle Race") started at the Santa Monica Pier and the finish line was on 5th Ave in NYC, in front of the Empire State Building.

Where have the years gone...?
