SDBC Sunday Ride, 6/5

San Diego Bicycle Club
Rancho Santa Fe, or ?

Leaves UC Cyclery at 8:30, led by SDBC member, with the focus on riding 2x2, and a likely stop at our coffee shop sponsor, Java Depot, in Solana Beach before return.

42 miles approx., route determined by participants. As simple as an SDBC Saturday route or some variation thereof. Decide together or with SDBC ride leader if present.

Bring two bottles of fluid and be ready to roll at 8:30. It would be nice if someone takes a group pic and emails it to me. I will then send it out to those riders that I can identify.

Thanks, and have a safe & fun ride.

A Note From The Bike Coalition Liaison


Safety Tip of the Week: REPORT aggressive motorists!

REPORT aggressive motorists!  If a motorist threatens you with their deadly weapon get their plate and go to the appropriate police or sheriff department and INSIST that a report is FILED.  Attorney Seth Davidson explains why this is so crucial in his piece - Don't take it lying down

And a follow-up piece - The people police

Seth's latest post (5/26) regading reporting vehicular harrassment - Report card

One report alone probably won't accomplish much. Tragically, police really have to be pushed to pursue these cases. But once they have more than one report on the same driver, and aggressive drivers are likely to be repeat offenders, that's a pattern, and even reluctant police may be spurred into action.  So don't take it lying down, get that report filed! 


Here is the link to the City of San Diego website to report street problems like the cracks, potholes and bumps on San Dieguito Road between Caminito Pacifica Trail and Winland Hills:

Remember: your SDBC membership includes membership in the San Diego County Bike Coalition which includes a number of benefits. See the  coalition website at

Other Items Of Interest

The following items are not sponsored or endorsed by SDBC but may be of interest to the general membership.

Salsa Ride at the Border

Mark your calendars for the Third Annual Salsa Ride at the Border on June 12, 2016!!!

Join hundreds of cyclists as we once again participate in this fine & worthy event, created by SDBC's Armando Valencia, and organized by the Foundation for the Children of the Californias on behalf of the Hospital Infantil de las Californias.

Funds raised at the event will be used for the Hospital’s ophthalmology efforts to prevent blindness and vision disorders in children. No child is turned away for inability to pay and the facility serves kids from both sides of the San Diego and Baja California mega-region.

The festive ride begins and ends at the “San Diego Outlets at the Border” in San Ysidro and offers a scenic passage through Otay Lakes, Chula Vista and the Eastlake area. Riders choose from either a metric century or metric half century route and all levels of riders are welcome to participate.

It is notable that a portion of the ride, for those doing the full metric century, goes through Otay Lakes and up Honey Springs, the same route taken by the Amgen TOC on Sunday, 5/15!

SDBC's Ralph Elliott will be once again be the MC (can't beat that!), and there will be finisher's medals, t-shirts, a wonderful post-ride meal, a beer garden (1 free coupon), a raffle, and a grand time had by all! For those riding the full metric century, the Honey Springs portion will be chip-timed. A most excellent event. Let's have another great showing from SDBC members!

Registration is open, and we are encouraging riders to register as soon as possible.
