San Diego - navigational assistance please

Hi all.

I'm visiting San Diego for a week (from Melbourne, AUS) and would like some help to find a good bike route to get to the start point for the SDBC Saturday ride. I'm staying near the airport and just don't know this area at all (lived in Pacific Beach 1994-1997 but rarely rode South of there!).

Google maps makes some suggestions, but I've learned not to trust it.

I found my way to Leucadia today - nice way to get over the jet lag.

if you can get to the rose canyon bike path, you are golden. the problem with getting from downtown to la jolla is that there is no real direct route, you'll have to go round about everything because as you know since you've lived here in the past, the city is split up by all the canyons and mesas. google maps bike directions are actually not that bad.

Thanks for the info! I thought Gmaps was suggesting the freeway - closer inspection suggests it might be the path you suggest.

This would seem to get me to the right area and is pretty direct:
