I'm spending the next couple months in Ocean Beach--looking to ride every day. I was wondering what routes were popular with road cyclists in this area. I've gone out Friars to Fashion Valley & up Soledad Mt. the other day but would like to expand out. Is there a location I can go to, to pick up the San Diego bicycling route map. Thanks for any advice.

check your LBS. There's a # you can call to have the city send you a map, but I don't remember what that # is.

IIRC Hi Tech has several copies of the map by the front door.

Oh, and check www.socalcycling.com too.

Not sure about Perry's Cafe, but it's basically right where Rosecrans passes under I-5. Can't miss it!

Thanks atp. I was never really good at following directions or geography. I usually give directions via "distinctive" landmarks.

Lots of options

You can ride Catalina out to the lighthouse or close to it if you don't want to pay the entrance. Turn around and ride down Canon street to North Harbor drive and wind around all the way to Imperial beach and up to Coronado. Catch the Ferry boat to Harbor drive and ride home. San Diego Road cycling book has it all laid out. Here is a poor quality layout of how to get to Rose Canyon bike path to get further north but it is a start. You can pick up the bike path next to the I-8 freeway to Pacific HWY and over to the Fiesta Island area vs riding SeaWorld drive or through Pacific Beach. Less traffic.
