Big group rides

There is apparently a number of semi-regular big group rides in San Diego. There was a "holiday ride" out of Encinitas today that drew a sizable crowd (I see 32 people just in Strava), there is a "belgian waffle ride" (in April?), a "pie ride" (not sure if it's a regular thing or just a route).

Which others are there, and is there a place that lists all of them?

Go to google groups and join the Swamis group . The Ride holiday ride and BWR are all Ride/Spy/Swamis rides. The pie ride is a route that is done by different groups/clubs.

SDBC had their Annual Turkey Hunt & Shoot ride today, usually about 100 riders. SDBC has some other annual rides also, Dec 14th Xmas Toy ~300 riders (yes 300), MADD (Mother's Against Drunk Drivers) Labor Day.
Campagnolo will have their Toy Ride on Dec 7th leaving from their office in Carlsbad.

I was thinking more along the lines of free rides, which I assumed BWR was. Good to learn otherwise.

sounds like you should join a club SDBC has a bunch of different levels

swamis seems race oriented but a large club idk all the levels with their size I assume they have a B and maybe a C, Ranchos I have seen the fast guys don't know if they have a B and Decenders smaller but fast, I get dropped like a rock off a cliff nice group of guys . Most of the clubs do Sat and Sun rides that are no cost.

The only one that starts near me is Ranchos, I went with them once and got dropped after about 10 min. There's another that starts a bit further out but they ride on Tuesdays, which is an obvious problem. To ride with all others, I'd have to drive to the start or get up at 6 AM on Saturdays.

It's mainly that I see/hear about these big rides, sometimes they go through my neighborhood (last year, SPY BWR and New Years passed right by my house), and I always learn about them after the fact.

when you join a club you find out about all the unofficial rides. Off the top of my head I can think of a Tuesday, 2 Wednesday and a Thursday ride that start near me.
