Coastal route info:

Inland route Info:

An inland route is being developed with two major differences with the coastal route: (1) It starts in Oceanside rather than San Clemente, (2) It does not climb the Torrey Pines hill

Starting in Oceanside permits a rail return using the San Diego COASTER train, which does not require a bike reservation.  Torrey Pines can be intimidating in that it occurs late in the ride and is a sustained climb.  However, note that the total climbing on this routes is more than on the coastal route.  It is more gradual and distributed.
