This 200k is an easy summer coastal cruise. It is an out-and-back where you’ll turnaround at Dana Point. The route is so simple there is one control you need to be bothered with.

Starting from Coronado Brewing Co on Knoxville St, you’ll ride north along Mission Bay Dr to pick up the Rose Creek/Rose Canyon Bike Path. Passing UCSD, you’ll pass through all the various beach communities along the coast until you reach Oceanside.

Between Oceanside and Las Pulgas Ave, you will need to hop on I-5 to make your way to Orange County. If you have a valid based pass, you are welcome to take the Stuart Mesa route, though you will add bonus miles and elevation gain. Make sure to exit at the Aliso Creek Rest Stop before continuing on the freeway to exit as Las Pulgas Ave exit.

The next section of the route is an easement through Camp Pendleton that is a dedicated bike path with a majestic view of the Pacific Ocean and the undeveloped coastline. Further up you’ll ride through San Onofre State Beach, the deactivated San Onofre Nuclear Generation Station with its iconic double domes before catching another stretch of bike path that passes Trestle Beach, famous for its surfing.

You’ll ride on Avenida del Presidente just after exiting the bike path. This street is so named because President Nixon’s former California residence, La Casa Pacifica, is located in the Cyprus Shore community to the west.

Passing through San Clemente, you’ll enter the dedicated bike path along El Camino Real before reaching Doheny State Beach. A short climb up Golden Lantern and you’ll reach the control at Spunky and Tudor Deli. While you enjoy a sandwich or just a light snack, do go inside to the dining area, as there are several vintage steel frame bikes serving as decor. Adhere to the signage at the entrance door: “NO CRYBABIES!”

After the control, you’ll descend down Cove Rd to catch an amazing view of Dana Point harbor and the Pacific Ocean before you retrace your route back to San Diego and the finish at Coronado Brewing for some beers and food.
