You still checking in here? North from Center City will take you to Jesmond Dene, and from there you can go down through North Escondido on Ash to El Norte Parkway, to Citrus then on into the San Pasqual Valley...there's some mild climbing on Mary Lane and Summit. Bear Valley is okay, Via Rancho Parkway to Felicita North will take you back to Center City Parkway.
How long of a loop are you looking for? What type of riding? Fast or climbing?
However, if I lived on North Center City, I would definitely just go North out of town. You've got all those climbs up to Valley Center (Circle R, Old Castle), or you could head West. Great, nearly traffic-free riding.
Otherwise, check this link:
These are all the routes that the North County Cycle Club use. They start from Old Restaurant Row in San Marcos, but I'd say that the majority of them pass by where you would normally start. The routes are well-planned and touch all of the best roads for North County riding.
