This One Goes Out To Dan On the Coaster Train: Group Rides in North San Diego County

Dear Dan,

Awesome to meet you the other night on the Coaster train, and thanks for your question about where to ride in North County! What a great idea for a blog post.

There are a number of great group workouts you can take advantage of in the area beyond the always-okay-with-me laps up and down the coast highway. My rides are easy to look up on the "Strava" link to the right, but here are some group-ride options as well:

SATURDAY 
Swami's Rides - open to all, but not for beginners.
Leaving from RIDE Cyclery, 449 South Coast Highway 101, Encinitas, CA 92024
B Ride: 7:45am
A Ride: 8:10am (Hammer. Time.)

SUNDAY
Swami's: Leaving Sundays from RIDE Cyclery at 8am - a more casually-paced loop.

TUESDAY
Swami's: NW corner of La Costa and El Camino Real at 6:30am

Swami's: Tuesday Night Ride leaves from RIDE Cyclery at 5:00pm

Team Ninja: Tuesday Night Workout in Balboa Park, 5:45pm (MTB)

WEDNESDAY 
Swami's: Leaving from Starbucks in Carlsbad, 2924 Carlsbad Blvd at 8:15am

San Diego Tri Club Fiesta Island workouts, 6:00pm beginning at Enchanted Cove (the dirt parking area across from the Boy Scout camp where the road splits for the long and short loop). While road or TT bikes are preferred for these workouts, any type of bicycle is welcome.

THURSDAY
Swami's: NW corner of La Costa and El Camino Real at 6:30am

Italian Loafers: NW corner of La Costa and El Camino Real at 7:30am (includes Double Peak)

Hope to see you out on a ride soon!

PS for WOMEN who are looking for other females to ride with, check out the Team Fun Meet Up out of Carbon Connection in Carlsbad. There are rides of every level pretty much every weekend.
