Train for a Century Week 5: Saturday August 20th


We’re back for another 16-week series of riding and training toward the Tour de Poway Metric Century in October and the Bike the Coast, Taste the Coast Century in November. You can use these rides to train for the Century, a charity ride, or just to meet some new people and learn some classic San Diego rides.

This Week’s Ride
Week 5, Saturday August 20th

Distance: 45 miles - 56 Bike Path/Lomis Santa Fe/Camino del Sur
Climbing Difficulty: 3 (Mostly hilly with 1 or 2 longer, harder climbs)
New Start Time: *7:30AM SHARP*
Start Location: Westview High School

The ride leaves promptly at 7:30am. Please arrive early if you haven’t had the chance to sign a waiver and meet your ride guides.

This week’s ride will once again incorporate the 56 bike path as we begin the ride by heading west on it towards the coast. Once there, we’ll head north to Solana Beach. From here, the climbing will begin as we first go to Rancho Santa Fe and then Del Mar. Once up to Del Mar, we’ll be challenged by the rolling hills of Carmel Valley Road and Camino del Sur prior to heading back to the high school along Black Mountain Road and the 56 bike path.
