Join us for this annual, leisurely paced, spoke and hub style event based from hotels in San Diego and the coastal town of Carlsbad.
  • Westjet offers Calgary--San Diego direct flights

  • Bring your bike on Westjet

    • in a plastic bag/cardboard box or

    • in a shipping case and store the case at our hotel

  • or, rent a bike there ( -- book early)

  • Luggage shuttles between airport/hotels

  • Daily distances vary from 30-70 km

Routes include residential streets, main roads with shoulder bike lanes, recreational pathways and at times, challenging climbs. There will be frequent opportunities to stop and smell the flowers, explore the beaches, photograph crashing surf & sip cappuccinos.

We'll start in San Diego exploring the beaches and boardwalks, islands and parks including Point Loma, Sunset Cliffs, Coronado Island, Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo. Then the hotel will shuttle our luggage while we cycle up the coast to the town of Carlsbad, our second home for a second series of day trips though the communities of San Clemente, Oceanside, Del Mar, Solano Beach, Escondido, Rancho Santa Fe, and Encinitas. We then cycle back to San Diego for a couple days of easy riding and sightseeing before our flight home. Option days throughout give participants a chance to do some sight seeing during the tour.

Most evenings the group holds a "happy hour" before dinner at one of the many local restaurants. The Old Town, San Diego accommodations include a hot tub. At Carlsbad our accommodations include breakfast, a small heated swimming pool and are across the street from the beach
