We'll start by riding north through the beautiful coastal communities of Del Mar and Solana Beach before turning east and riding through the foothills and inland valleys on our way to Mt. Palomar (6000 feet, 1000 meters) and a stop at the famous Hale observatory. We will continue east, then stop for lunch near Lake Henshaw before attacking the tight turns of Mesa Grande. From here we'll continue to the towns of Santa Ysabel and Ramona before returning to San Diego.

Laguna, the highest point in San Diego County at over 6000 feet [1800 meters]. We'll stop for lunch at scenic Lake Cuyamaca, and then we'll follow the Sweetwater River through the Japatul Valley before returning to San Diego in plenty of time for a seaside cocktail before sunset.
