    Organized Rides in San Diego?

    I will be in San Diego on a business trip for the next three weeks, and was wondering if there are any organized rides between now and March 8? Searched Ride Date, but didn't see anything except for a century in Santa Clarita, and one in Ventura. Kind of a long way to drive for a century ride.

    I is thinking about it. It qualifies on my list:

    1) My backyard
    2) I have never attend it
    3) It's a century
    4) It's not flat

    I'll probably sign up later this week, just watching the weather.

    at about mile 42 when you would turn right on Lyons Valley rd...turn left...go about 1.5 miles down, there is a store on the right that has everything you would need. turn around and head back on route.

    the next stop after that is at about mile 62ish.

    I have done this route from the 30 mile mark out several times. the "great western" as they call most of the route used to be my team route every saturday.

    I'm in, weather or no. The route info states there's rest stops every 20-25 miles. Is that enough for you?
