Corona 300k is the Coronado without the “D’OH” and the 5,000 ft of additional climbing. Though total elevation gain is approximately 8,000 ft, the highest point on this brevet is 1,350 ft. After mile 90 when you reach the start of SART, the route will be primarily flat back to Solana Beach, avoiding the Torrey Pines climb.

Leaving the start at the Solana Beach train station, you’ll immediately start climbing on Lomas Santa Fe Rd, reminding you that in Spanish, lomas means hills. You’ll negotiate over several hills on your way to Rancho Santa Fe before hitting the Del Dios Hwy toward Escondido. Continuing north, you’ll follow along I-15 on Old Hwy 395 through Fallbrook and Rainbow before entering Riverside County.

Poppy Super Bloom

After Temecula where you can stop for water and food at various stores, you’ll progress further north through Lake Elsinore and Temescal Canyon. Because of another year of abundant rainfall, you’ll see again the poppy super bloom that will be on display in Walker Canyon. This year the San Diego mountain lilac (ceanothus) is joining in on the bloom craze, covering complete hillsides with their majestic purple and blue.

to reach the city of Corona, the name which once was associated with a fun Mexican beer but is now maligned by a virus.


Unlike the Santiago 300k which does its best to avoid the Santa Ana River Trail, this brevet fully embraces it as you will enter from Green River Rd and ride the full length to the mouth of the Santa Ana River where it flows into the Pacific. You’ll make your way south through the various Orange County beach communities (including the dreaded Laguna Beach, the capital of a$$hole drivers). Through San Onofre State Beach and onto I-5 in order to continue sans Camp Pendleton base access (you are welcome to ride through the base if you have a valid pass and are willing to pad bonus miles and elevation gain) to return to civilization when entering San Diego County at Oceanside. A few more coastal miles and you are back in Solana Beach.
