This is not a race, but a fun ride (moderate pace) and a time for all of us to enjoy riding together to remember club members killed while riding. We will be stopping at Java Depot on the return trip for a FREE cup of Java.

Red memorial MADD ribbons will be given to all participants to tie onto their bicycles during the ride.

When:  Monday, September 5, 2015 Roll out at 8:30 am

SDBC Sunday Ride, 8/28

San Diego Bicycle Club
Rancho Santa Fe

* If the weather is still hot, it may be decided to take the group up the coast.

44 miles approx, leaves UC Cyclery at 8:30, led by SDBC member at SDBC Saturday D1 Ride pace, with the focus on riding 2x2 and keeping the group together. On short climbs we will tend to get separated, but we will regroup at the tops of each. The ride includes a stop at our coffee shop sponsor, Java Depot, in Solana Beach by 11:00, and we’ll be back at UCC by 12:30 or before.

Bring two bottles of fluid and be ready to roll at 8:30. A group pic is typically taken and sent to all participants afterwards with a ride write-up.

Come along. Our aim is to stay safe, be challenged, and have fun together.

* By joining this or any other SDBC ride, you acknowledge cycling is an inherently dangerous and potentially deadly activity. It is impossible for every rider to be kept safe against every potential mishap every second of the ride. By riding with SDBC you are giving your implied consent that you take responsibility for your own safety, and assume all liability for any incidents that might occur on our rides.

A Note from the Velodrome Director

San Diego Bicycle Club  
Membership Discount and more!

First, the track is going to get a resurfacing in September. We will close the facility for riding from September 14 through September 26th. In this short time the riding surface will be re-paved and painted. We will add an additional cool-down/warm-up circle in the northern half of the infield and will make some upgrades to other parts of the facility. This is going to be a TON of work and we will be seeking your help to ensure this goes off smoothly. It's your track and now's the time to really get involved.

Our website recently received a facelift too. We hope this layout better serves to inform and bring in more riders to our facility. Check it out! If you're a current member, there is a members-only area that is accessible through a secure log in. Requests are manually verified against our current member's list. Once you have been verified (usually no more than 6-8 hours) you will be able to access the Members-Only tab under Membership on the website. In there you can find the current membership list, member documents, as well as BOD meeting minutes. It is currently an evolving section; so if there are things you feel are missing let us know.

Starting August 1st, 2016 memberships to the SDVA are 50% off. Memberships will be valid to the end of this calendar year. New members will receive the same benefits as current members as well as a combo into the facility to ride during open hours. To apply, please fill out the form in the New Members section attach a check or money order and send it in.

SDVA link -

Some reminders:

Public hours are on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. During this time ANYONE is invited to ride their bicycle (any bike) on the track. Please bring a helmet and be prepared to sign a waiver.

Members are allowed to ride only during Open Hours on the track. All scheduled events are noted on the calendar.

Motor Pacing is only allowed by SDVA approved coaches.

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
