    Mount Soledad RIDE

    Mount Soledad South RIDE

    Saturday at 8:00am from Encinitas
    Second Saturday of every month


    Join us for a RIDE down South. With some longer climbs, this is a B group RIDE.

    The group RIDEs towards Torrey Pines. They regroup at the top and descend down to the La Jolla Cove. They make their way to the base of Mt. Soedad and climb, they regroup at the Cross in the park. The group descends, then ascends again up Via Capri for one last time to the park. After some elevation the group RIDEs back down the summit to Torrey Pines and back to the shop.

    47 miles
    3,329 ft of elevation
    Estimated time 3.5 hours


    The Efforts

    "Torrey Pines" (mile 8.5 - 10.5)

    This is the first real effort of the Soledad route. The ride is fairly contained/neutral until we reach the base of the Torrey Pines Climb. Some riders choose to hit it early, some wait for a small group to break away, others take it at their own pace. Ultimately, we all regroup at the top (by the traffic light).


    "Muirlands Vista Way_2" (mile 18 - 19.2)

    The second effort of the ride starts once we make the turn on to Muirlands Vista. It really kicks off at the hairpin turn, when the road merges into Muirlands Drive. There is a regroup at the top of this short climb (intersection of Muirlands Dr. and Inspiration Dr.)


    Soledad (Soledad Ave to the Cross)" (mile 22.7 - 24.8)

    This is the hardest effort of the entire ride. Small groups of 2-3 people will naturally form over this effort, while many choose to regroup right before the turn onto Hillside Dr. (the section of closed road, affectionately known as the "dirt path"). However, the effort only truly ends once you reach the cross at the top of the mountain.


    "Rose Canyon Bike Path to UCSD" (mile 30.9 - 33.9)

    This is a group effort, but it can get a little speedy. Keep an eye out for oncoming cyclists and runners. At the end of the bike path we regroup and prepare for the climb up Gilman, one of the last climbs of the ride. It is usually accompanied by a slight tailwind and as a result, this segment can get pretty speedy for some. Keep an eye out for red lights


    "Down Torrey Up Del Mar" (mile 36.2 - 39)

    This is a big, fast descent followed by a punchy climb up to the light at Carmel Valley Road. If the light is green, this effort is extended to Del Mar Heights, which adds another half mile).


    "Mexican Mile (Roberto's to Las Olas)" (mile 43.3 - 44.1)

    A classic. The last official effort of the ride. From here, it's an easy pace back to the shop.


    And that's it! See you guys on Saturday for an awesome RIDE!
