This tour is such fun,folks joined the club each year just to come along...

This will be the 13th year... PHOTOS from 2002! and 2001!

This is the BCI's classic ride down the flattest route Bill can find, from Irvine into San Diego county... A self contained or supported liesurely Bicycle Tour down the coast leaving at 9AM Saturday from DCP in Irvine to Carlsbad State Beach; overnight camping on the bluffs at South Carlsbad State Beach , or staying at the hotel, returning on Sunday. (About 60 miles each day - or less: you can start in San Juan Capistrano or San Clemente!) with the added feature of traveling Self Contained! Fully loaded camping or light load hotel cyclotouring is one of the best ways to travel & see the world. This tour will welcome many never before toured riders to the cyclotouring experience! Detailed route instructions, and good company make it fun and trouble free! Plan on finding your own meals (See roadkill) &/or join in the optional group Pizza dinner at the State Beach (not included in the basic tour)
Robert Nugent's motor cycle cold snack stop in Camp Pendleton under Las Pulgas bridge, evening camp fire, 'somores', & cosmic wimpout will be there as always.
Plan on having time to fly a kite & take a swim in the warm Pacific!
Space is limited ... Please register before the 1st Monday in June!

 "How can I carry all of my own stuff!?!"

 Camping: Limited spaces (16) are available for tent camping at the South Carlsbad State Beach. Gas guzzeling car parking is very limited - so coordinate with Bill if you are planning to have another person drive down &/or camp with you, There are only 2 cars allowed per camp site so coordinate with Bill to car camp!

Inn or other lodging plans : Make your own reservations... Ok, you can almost have as much fun but sleep in a bed indoors (and have a pool & bath tub etc.): the beach is a short walk/ride from the Inn. Secure your own room reservation at the Carlsbad Inns of America @ (760) 931-1185 & ask for one of the group discounted block of rooms for the Bicycle Club of Irvine. Compare with AAA & other discounts - you may get a better rate but make sure they include you in the BCI block of rooms! Make reservations as soon as possible, as the Inn will likely fill up again this year!
If you don't get into the Inn, there is also a Motel 6 directly next door - Penny and Doug are coordinating dinner at the beach; fresh delivered pizza and a gourmet salad so everyone can dine together, or you can opt out & find / cook dinner on your own... but come over to the camp ground for sunset & campfire to fully appreciate the touring experience!

The $15 tour fees covers the direct costs of the tour, camp sites, printing route slips, Sag stop refreshment, campfire
& a unique bicycle event with a lot of great people!
The extra $10 will cover gas & 'perks' for the Porter if you don't want to carry your own load ($10 per BAG);
The $15 dinner fee covers the pizza, gourmet salads, deserts & soft drinks at the State Beach before the camp fire...
All excess proceeds do go to support the club's budget...

We have a great team assembled but can still use a sweep vehicle or two for each day ...
Not critical but if a non riding spouse or friend is driving - consider helping out & encouraging riders along the route!
