Rides and Events

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!

Girls only

Looking for a fun SAFE girls only mountain bike retreat? Contact our friend Gail to learn more about what she offers.


"As a beginner mountain biker I was highly impressed with Gail's instruction. 

 She teaches in a way that is easy to understand and I was able to translate her knowledge into becoming a better rider.  Gail took great care in making sure I was safe and staying within my skill level.

 Every time we rode she built off the last lesson in helping me gain confidence in my capabilities. 

 The cabin feel of the accommodations we relaxing and enjoyable. The fire pit and the outside white string lights were my favorite.  Great way to unwind after a gorgous ride in the forest.  The mountain air was exactly what i needed to escape the congestion of city life! 

 If you are a beginning rider I would highly recommend Gail to show you the how to stay safe, have fun, explore a part of San Diego that not many people are aware of, and relax in the serenity of the mountains."
