Our fellow rando, Jonah, will defend his doctorate dissertation and finish his PhD at UCSD this summer. To celebrate this auspicious occasion, he will lead this statutory century, a necessary steppingstone toward earning the much-coveted RUSA Rouleur Award.

Copley Library, USD

This century is a tour of the 6 “universities”, both public and private, in San Diego County. Starting in the La Jolla Village Square shopping center parking lot, you’ll make your way south to through some urban jungle to stop by Copley Library in University of San Diego and then to Point Loma to Meiras Hall in Point Loma Nazarene University, a scenic campus overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Leaving the Ocean behind, you’ll make your way inland through Mission Valley to reach San Diego State University. In the late 80s the school was ranked by Playboy Magazine as Number 3 party school and perhaps the oldest of 6 schools.

Meiras Hall, PLNU

You’ll ride up the I-15 corridor to reach Alliant University hidden in the eucalyptus trees of Scripps Ranch. You’ll continue your trek north through various bedroom communities before reaching CSU San Marcos on Twin Oaks Valley Rd.

Passing by Lake San Marcos, you’ll pedal back to the coast and proceed southward to reach UC San Diego, the last campus on this tour. You’ll ride by the school’s iconic building, the Geisel Library, named after Dr Seuss, the renowned author for his memorable stories set to whimsical rhymes.
