We are switching things up to keep you all on your toes! We are scouting a new route through the islands for the Full Arch for 2024.
We can leave a few breadcrumbs and tell you the Full Arch route will take you on an adventure from east to west instead of the traditional north to south journey. We can tell you there will be plenty of miles (around 50), plenty of smiles and plenty of climbing (around 5K)!
The Half Arch will remain similar to 2023 starting at Sundevil Way with a lap around Black Mountain then west to Penasquitos.
Both routes will permit ebikes (class 1 and 2).
Registration will open in mid-January with members only, discounted pricing and then will open to the public.
We are proud to have Gravity Heights return in 2024 as our host for the Finish Line Luau. Gravity Heights location offers ample parking for the epic parking lot Finish Line Luau held on top of the parking garage adjacent to the brewery & restaurant. When you roll in from the epic ride you will be greeted with fun, food, vendors, friends and amazing Gravity Heights brews! Families, friends and cheering squads are invited to join in the fun!
Stay tuned for details as we get closer and SAVE THE DATE!
Get ready for something NEW! An east to west, 45 mile adventure starting at Sycamore Canyon/Goodan Ranch down Beeler Canyon Trail. Then get ready for a rollicking and rolling trek through the "Poway Alps" continuing west along the Trans-County Trail. A hefty climb up to a suburban adventure (follow all RULES OF THE ROAD) through Rancho Bernardo to Sun Devil Way!
