Description One tough SR with over 35K feet of elevation and starts near the Pacific Ocean. It has a touch of urban riding before climbing through Southern California Peninsular Ranges and into the Anza Borrego Desert. Seasonal climate can range from balmy at the coast, snow over 4000' in the mountains, to extreme temperatures in the desert. To the astute randonneur, this route will demand your full attention in planning, conditioning, route prep, fueling, rest stops and bike set-up.
