The North County Cycle Club is based in the city of San Marcos in northern San Diego county. The Club has three groups which suit a wide range of bicycle riders: the Roadies and the Cruisers for road riding, and Team Spokey Dokes (TSD) for mountain biking. So, whether you ride just to maintain your health or you want to hammer, we have a group and a ride to meet your needs. Follow the link to each group for ride information and schedules.

In late January Mike told me about a group planning to ride the Southern Tier Route. After some hemming and hawing I decided I would give it a try. The first step was to buy a touring bicycle. I immediately ordered and installed a Brooks saddle. I chose a Fuji 58 cm model. To alleviate a persistent neck pain I replaced the 110 mm stem with a 90 mm one that alleviated the neck pain. I switched the 32 C tires for Continental 38s. Mike recommended carrying two spare tubes although I never got a flat over the entire 3100 miles. Mike and I did a two-day test ride with fully loaded bikes from Ocotillo Wells to Agua Caliente in the Borrego State Park as test run; it all went well so in my mind I was ready.
Ocotillo Wells to Agua Caliente shakedown and campout with Mike, February 8th and 9th.
