Posted in: Cycling News, Rides & Trails     |    No Tweets

The Annual Page County Grown Century Ride rolls through some of the most bucolic miles you may ever ride. Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley hosts numerous cycle races and rides, so adding one to benefit local farms seemed a natural fit for Page County Grown, an agricultural promotion organization that founded the ride. In its second year in 2014, the 100-mile ride winds through farmland with water breaks at five farms. By making […]

The Costal Bike Route Along Highway 101 in San Diego, California

By     |    Aug 7, 2014
Posted in: Rides & Trails     |    No Tweets

In Brief: This is THE classic San Diego ride. For cyclists like me who come from colder climes, this is truly a year-round route even when San Diego experiences the rare day of winter rain and fog. There are a few moderately steep hills. If you start somewhere near downtown, the ride ends in Oceanside at Camp Pendleton. Length: 35-40 miles Configuration: Out-and-back Trail Traffic: Some heavy vehicular traffic later in the day Special Comments: This is a […]

The Catalina Highway runs through the Coronado National Forest to the top of Mount Lemmon. Over its 27 miles, it gains […]
