I've just finished booking my family vacation to San Diego and now I need to plan how I'm going to cycle out there. I'll be staying at La Costa Resort. What I'd like is the name of a decent place to rent a road bike and some suggestions for some decent riding based out of the resort. We're going for a full week and I'm hoping to get 2-3 good riding days where I can do 50+ mile loops.
It's a magnetic bed that sticks to the gas tank. We don't go on the freeways, just puttputt around town. (Sometimes with my Ma's dog too.)
She doesn't like goggles, so I just get larger windshields on my bikes. Been riding with me for more than a decade and never been hurt and her eyes are still great for a 14-year-old dog.
You have a ton of options with 50 mile loops. Since you'll be in La Costa, look into inland North County loops - San Pasqual Valley, Lake Wohlford Road (if you like hills) and the Valley Center area, although that may bring you a bit out of the 50-mile range.
Some roads in these areas are like mecca to me. The Woods Valley Road stretch is one of my favorites.
