Road Bike Rental San Diego – Torrey Pines

48 km - 525 m / 30 mi - 1722 ft - Daily Rides

Spectacular coastal views await you on this beautiful route on Pacific Coast Highway in north county San Diego. Beginning our ride in the beachside community of Encinitas, we roll south through town and past Swami’s and the first views of the Pacific. Riding along the bluff, you can see the coastline all the way to La Jolla, close to our turn around point. Continuing down through Cardiff, we drop right down next to the water and some great spots to catch the surfers and paddle boarders at this popular spot.

Our route continues through Solana Beach and Del Mar before dropping down to Torrey Pines beach and our first climb of the day-Torrey Pines inside. This beauty climbs for 3km winding up through Torrey Pines Stat Preserve. The first half of the climb is a 8-10% stinger, then eases way off to about 3% as we take in 360 degree views of most of San Diego County. Making our way past UC San Diego, we drop down La Jolla Shores Drive with a beautiful view of La Jolla and the cove down to the second climb of Calle del Oro.

This is another short but steep one at 2.4km of mostly 8-12% winding up through the hillside estates overlooking the ocean. After this little challenge, we head back north along the route we rode down on, this time with views of the mountains in northeast San Diego including Palomar Mountain way off in the distance. A few rolling hills back through the beach towns brings us back to Encinitas and the finish line. Join us for the most beautiful coastal ride in San Diego!

Beautiful views, a mix of terrain, are key to all the San Diego rides – Oceanside and Elfin Forest are no exception.
