Do you love to bicycle? Want to get away for the holidays? Plan to be a part of this exciting six day bicycle tour through the mountains, deserts, and seacoast around San Diego! It is a 6 day 400 mile ride!
Discounted hostel stays also available for out-of-town guests. Please make sure to review the ride details.
Your trip fee covers overnight facilities in church multipurpose rooms, recreation centers, and gymnasiums, breakfast and dinner each day (please note that you are responsible for your own lunch each day and bringing sleeping materials), sag wagon support, leadership, and the Christmas Trip T-shirt.
No official mechanical or rest support is provided on the trip. All riders are expected to bring the spare parts and tools they may need, especially if you have non-standard tubes or other parts. Though it is a very collegiate ride and certainly there will be knowledgable people on the trip, happy to lend assistance unofficially and in their individual capacities.
You are able to book alternate accomodations at hotels along the route.
And please take a look at this video for a sneak peak of why people say it's so much fun and keep coming back year after year!
