Please e-mail comments, corrections and additions to the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This ride is a 37-mile scenic loop through the mountains east of San Diego, California. The hills are moderate.
Most of this ride runs through areas subject to winter snows and summer thunderstorms. Check the weather forecast before you begin and take appropriate protective clothing.
The ride starts and ends at the Buckman Springs Road interchange on Interstate 8. Water and rest rooms are available at the Buckman Springs Rest Area, which is accessible to bicyclists because the entrance is on Buckman Springs Road, not on the interstate highway.
Parking at the rest area is limited to eight hours, which should be more than enough time for the ride. However, it is illegal to park at a rest area to do something away from the rest area. Parking is available outside the rest area.
