As the folks who ride with Heather regularly know, she loves a Rancho Santa Fe ride. While there are fewer bike lanes out there, there are also fewer cars, more interesting terrain, more shade, and pretty scenery. We will be offering A, B, and C groups. Routes and group speeds are outlined below.
A Group Route (average speed on mixed terrain 16-18 mph) This route twists and turns through Rancho Santa Fe, with a variety of short hill challenges.
