Join us for the 12th Annual San Diego Century! Take on one of 3 beautiful courses for a challenging and rewarding cycling experience on San Diego’s most scenic routes 33, 67 or 105 miles.

Choose a course and join 2000 of your cycling friends for a ride through the beautiful hills of San Diego County and a finish-line expo in Encinitas.

THREE DISTANCES - 37-mile ride around Lake Hodges or a 66-mile ride that continues up to Poway, or a 103-mile ride that follows the first two and then climbs up past Mt. Woodson to Ramona.  The rides all have hills and require good fitness and bike handling.
