Long Roadies

Long Roadies rides are 50-60+ miles long. There are strong riders in both the Roadies and Long Roadies but Long Roadies ride for a longer time.

Average speeds for the whole ride are 16-18 mph. We are not a “racing” oriented club. If someone really is too slow we make sure they know where they are and how to get back to the start. Routes are planned using RideWithGPS and the “route map” link for each ride goes to the route where you can view, download to a GPS navigation device, or print a cue sheet.

Please introduce yourself when you come out on a ride. Visitors will be required to sign the NCCC Liability Waiver. Riders are expected to follow the NCCC Rules of Etiquette on all club rides. Also of interest is this CyclingSavvy course on club riding. Send questions regarding Roadies rides to Ursula at roadies@northcountycycleclub.com. Thanks to Sean for planning the Long rides.

FYI: e-bike policy is described here. Contact your ride leader before bringing a bike with electric assist to a club ride.

The NCCC Liability Waiver can be found here.

Saturday Ride

Saturday rides meet at the Old California Restaurant Row – OCRR – (behind Acapulco’s and Fish House Vera Cruz), 1020 San Marcos Blvd., between Hwy 78 and Rancho Santa Fe Rd. Click here for map.

Rides start @OCRR at 8:00 am, unless otherwise noted.

Ride leader: Sean Brennan

Monthly plan:

  • The first Saturday of each month the ride focuses on hills with total climbing typically between 5,000 and 8,000 feet. This may include pitches of over 15%.
  • The second Saturday of the month is a flatter and shorter ride with distances between 50 and 70 miles with limited climbing.
  • The third Saturday of the month is our adventure ride which includes new or rarely ridden roads, some dirt is possible and perhaps a gate or two.
  • The fourth Saturday is dedicated to a longer than typical ride in the range of 70-100 miles.
  • Months that have a fifth Saturday will be a joint ride with the Regular riders following their route, with some bonus miles for those that are interested in a longer ride.

Please check the Forum > Club Rides & Events for ride changes due to extreme weather or other unforeseen events.
