The Boob Ride is always a lot of fun. Coastal scenery, good friends, a challenging ride (or be casual about it), capped off with a big Last Mile Party, and then catch the charter bus home.

Highlights:

The event is capped at 300. We are trying to keep our event intimate and manage all the logistics. So, you'd better get signed up ASAP.
The charter buses will bring you home after the party. We are looking for a sponsor for the charter buses.
The Tidewater Tavern will be the destination for the Last Mile Party
The buffet will be available at the Last Mile Party. Contact us if you would like to sponsor the buffet.
The official course includes a small segment on I-5. Those that rode the freeway last year liked it. They said the cars were not moving at all (go figure, the 5 is backup on a Saturday) and it was no problem to pass all the cars. Camp Pendleton has restricted base access. You need to a base pass to ride through the base. Details are here for a base pass.

Routes, Schedules, and so Forth
A-Cup is only available at the San Diego event, which starts in Solana Beach on the same day at 9:00 AM. Here are the details for that event, https://theboobride.org/rides/2022-san-diego-boob-ride/.
B-Cup is a U-turn route. This route is designed for those that want to support the cause and do some of the ride with their friends. You can start with the D or C groups, ride as far as you want to, and turn around as you see fit. Some would say that this is the perfect size, not too small and not too big. Just right! However, you will miss the famous post ride party.
Start is 8:00 am or sooner
C-Cup is a 60 mile ride directly to Solana Beach.
Start is 7:30 am or sooner
D-Cup is a 90 mile ride through the Elfin Forest and Rancho Sante Fe. This is a very scenic, but a very hilly and challenging route. Make sure you have the legs and lungs for before you take on this one. Just in case you change your mind, you can stay on PCH at Palomar Airport Road and finish with the C-Group. DO NOT sign up for this route unless you can average better than 16 mph, handle 4,500 feet of climbing, and have less than 1 hour of stoppage time. The buses and trucks will be gone if you come in after 2:15. GONE!
Start is 7:00 am
All routes (except the B-cup) finish at the Tidewater Tavern in Solana Beach
Be in by 12:45 or you'll miss the famous awards ceremony.
