What we're about

When: Every Saturday morning at 8:15 AM

⚠☣ COVID-19 Notice: Yes, we really do ride every Saturday...when we can. This coronavirus lockdown is unprecedented. I'll continue to cancel sessions of the Meetup ride, playing it by ear (canceling at least 4 days in advance), until the SDBC Saturday club rides are officially happening again

Where: Meet in front of UC Cyclery at 8715 Via La Jolla Drive (in the La Jolla Village Square mall at the intersection of Via La Jolla and Nobel Drive)
What: Have a fun bike ride around San Diego's North County! You'll enjoy views of inland valleys and the coast. Ride leaders help you decide which group you should join based on your riding experience. Then we roll out at 8:30 AM after some brief announcements.

You can ride to the start or drive there and leave your car in the lot while you ride. Free coffee and bananas are provided courtesy of UC Cyclery to get you fired up to go! Rides range from 24 miles to 47 miles. The shorter rides are also slower. Most riders stop at Solana Beach Coffee Company before heading back to UC Cyclery or going directly home.
You ride at your own risk, but you'll get lots of guidance from experienced SDBC ride leaders if you need it. We generally don't ride if it's raining.

• Ride with us! (https://www.sdbc.org/saturday) You don't need to be a member (of SDBC (https://www.sdbc.org/) or Meetup) to join the ride, but as you may soon learn, becoming a member brings many social & economic benefits.
