The Most Diverse Bicycle Club in Orange County
Come ride with us!
This year the official route will be on the 5 Freeway from Las Pulgas Rd to Harbor Dr. exit. This is an official bike route riding the 8 foot wide shoulder. If you wish to ride thru Camp Pendleton as an optional unsupported route you must be registered to traverse the Base. To gain access you must register at least 2 weeks prior to the event which is only valid for 365 days. See the link below and follow the instructions:
We are always on the lookout for volunteers for Amtrak. It takes about 125 volunteers to guarantee a successful support crew for the Amtrak Riders. If you can spare a few hours please add yourself to my crew of happy and energetic team members. Everyone receives the commemorative T-Shirt

Our own Jim Brewer will present a photo program on one of our favorite Socal rides, Glendora Mountain Road. Jim has ridden GMR weekly for the past several years and will share his unique perspective on this legendary climb. Featured as part of the Tour of California, this classic climb holds great memories for many of us. And if you haven't yet attempted it, this will be a great opportunity to learn about what you have been missing.
