Route outline: : https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29519111   Route description below.    
The ride starts at Stanlunds Inn headed north to Christmas Tree Circle, a round-about & city park,  in the center of town and travels west for about 3 miles towards the awesome Montezuma Grade, an 11 mile pass that gradually takes you up out of the desert and into the mountains. From the summit, you will soar down towards and around Lake Henshaw.  Just past Henshaw store, R.S.2,  you'll turn right and head up the east grade of Mt. Palomar, 14 miles, of a gentle mtn. grade, to the only store up there, and R.S. 2,  From here, you'll turn around and head down the south grade, back to hwy. 76 and down a five mile descent to Valley Center Rd., a round about, heading south past a sky skraper casino and Rest Stop.  More backroads take you to  Oceanside, for lunch on the beach.

Heading south along Oceanside you'll ride through Carlsbad, Vista, and up five mile Ramona grade to the quaint western town of Ramona.  Old Julian Hwy will take you on another five mile backroad, and down to Santa Ysabel for Julian Apple Pie, a la mode, unless it's late enough for chicken & veg. soup.  The last climb is again, moderate, and takes you up to the one-horse western town of Julian. . At the end of Julian you begin a wonderful 17 mile descent back out to the desert, which by now, has cooled down, with the sun setting or even dark with a billion, billion stars!

 A left turn will take you up two miles to Yaki Pass, always with a tail wind, and then you're soaring down the pass, headed for the barn. You'll see Borrego off to your left in the distance, quiet...unitl you turn left at the bottom, and diagonal over to a  not-fun two mile headwind, which finally curves north.  It's a straight shot for two miles to Stanlunds Inn. The End!  The desert air will be sweet, the stars will twinkle, and the Palm Trees will welcome you in with open arms. 16,000 ft, 192 miles, Congratulations! You have made yourself a Borrego Double Century, California Triple Crown Winner!  

     The pavement around the entire course is very good to excellent which is a significant plus! 

      The coldest part of the ride will be after you reach the Summit on Montezuma; that 10 mile descent will require warm clothes, which you can get if you send your drop bags to Ranchita Store.  It could also get cold coming down off Palomar.  The warmest part of the double will be riding up Ramona, this is in the afternoon, and possibly up Old Ramona Grade.  That said, this is spring time and may get warm, but hopefully not hot.  We will have drop bag service at several Rest Stops.

  .  Garmin ready route available in "Riders Only" area on website, along with other info. 

Post-ride meal, and photos at the Finish, at Stanlunds Inn, on Borrego Rd.  Looking forward to seeing you out for a very scenic Borrego Double Century!

See You at the Top, "Unstopable"!
