We’re back for another 16-week series of riding and training toward the Tour de Poway Metric Century in October and the Bike the Coast, Taste the Coast Century in November. You can use these rides to train for the Century, a charity ride, or just to meet some new people and learn some classic San Diego rides.

Rain Policy – If the roads are wet and/or rain is expected, then the ride is cancelled. Use this method on the “morning of”: if your driveway is wet, it’s cloudy and the forecast has a 20%+ chance of rain – no ride. If it’s drying out or sunny – come on down, we’ll decide at the start.
