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

This is the BCI's classic ride down the flattest route we can find, from Irvine's Civic Center to Carlsbad in San Diego county...
A Bicycle Tour down the coast leaving at 9AM Saturday from Irvine to Carlsbad; About 60 mile each day; overnight at the hotel, returning on Sunday. The route can be shortened for those who would like a shorter ride; Check in your bags on the truck at 8am; drive part of the route & find a place to park overnight to trim off as many of the the first miles you choose, start there & the main group will catch you before you make it all the way to San Diego...and the strong hearted who love their centuries can ride past Carlsbad on PCH all the way up Torry Pines Grade & return North to the hotel whenever they wish. Detailed route instructions, and good company make it fun and trouble free! Plan on finding your own snacks or lunch & breakfast on the route, but join in the group poolside dinner Saturday evening at the hotel in Carlsbad!
