Good weather, often foggy along coast early in am.  After lunch, climbing Montezuma it can go from breezy to windy, then after summit,

there's a long down hill, and could get chilly up in the mountain area.  On the way back in the Oceanside area along the bike path, it 

could become foggy again.

Drop bag service helps you to be prepared for weather, and anything you may need, that you don't want to carry all day. It works like this: 

Drop bag service: At the Ride Start, and or Rest Stop 1, you can pick up a brown paper sack, to put your lights, warm gear, spokes, etc. in, and it will be forwarded to the last rest stop where you can pick up your bag, which has your lights and warm clothes. You can have a bag sent to one or both RS 5, and RS 6.  You will write on your bag your name and the number Rest Stop you want it sent to.  Always bring more warm clothes, batteries, and lights than you think you will need.  They just stay in your bag if you don't need them.  Bags left can be picked up at Finish Sun. or  very late Sat. night.

Overview of the Route:

     First, let me say this double has the best paved roads ever, and in my opinion, the best paved roads of all the doubles!  It also has the
scenery that best depicts California which include the ocean, the mountains and the desert, all in one double century!  This double has 
relatively few turns.  The bulk of the signals will be along the ocean which will be mostly green when your are coming through in the early
     We will take Pacific Coast Highway all the way down to Solana Beach, which involves no tuns after the first immediate turn out of the 
ride start.  The route then urns inland embracing a few rollers, heading over to the first Rest Stop on the edge of Escondido.  From here 
you'll wind around making your way towards the first mountain climb, heading up the five mile mountain grade towards the small town
of Ramona.  The climbing continues on a less traveled road, Old Julian, up to an even smaller town, Santa Ysabel.  From here it is one
mile up to the 2nd Rest Stop, Inja Park. Another 6 miles of gentle winding road takes the rider to the one-horse town of Julian, which is 
all an old country-western town that is all of one block long.  Here is the summit for the first half of the ride.  An 18 mile scenic decent
on the other side takes you down the other side where you'll be greeted by the beautiful autumn desert terrain.  There will be one short
chocolate chip hill, then multiple dips that are not hills, just little dips.
     Alas, you will see a sign for Borrego Springs turn off, taking you towards Yaki Pass which is all of 2 miles of a fairly gentle climb
with great views of the desert!  Then a long decent down into Borrego.  Here you'll fork left and begin a flat road headed west, then 
circling north towards Borrego which T's into a circular Park,  Christmas Circle, your lunch stop!
      After lunch, you'll head west on a gentle sloping rode headed straight for Montezuma Grade.  This 11 mile well-paved road will take
you higher and higher, with spectacular views of  Borrego's desert!  One mile down to Ranchita Store, & White Big Foot monument for  
a water stop & or porta-potty.  If you are a slower rider, you may want to have your drop off bag sent here as it will get dark early and may
get real cold up here.  
     Down, down, down, making eventually a turn at the T, and then more decent to another T.  Left turn here for a few miles before
turning right onto hwy 76 headed west.for many miles before the next turn, Cole Grade Rd., your 4th Rest Stop for fruit smoothies!
      Next, will be the last tough climb of the day.  It circles around to your left, not letting you how tough 3 mile climb is going to be. 
It is a climb you need to prepare yourself for tackling mentally.  
     After you reach the top, of Cole Grade, you'll come over the next small rolly and see this giant roller coaster out in the distance which 
just looks straight up from your point of view!  However, do not despair because when you actually get to it, you'll find out there's a dip in
the middle of it , and it's not nearly as steep as it looked from when you first saw it!  That roller coaster hill, is what I'd call your 
significant climb.  After that, you begin your descending, via winding roads through a long road called Lilac. 
     Once you get down to the last Rest Stop, you'll be on flats all the way back to Oceanside, with your last seven miles on a bike path.
