Registration is not open

Overnight Ride

Registration will open on December 1st

Note: You must register in advance.  Registration closes at noon on Monday before the ride to allow for last minute logistics and communications. There is no day-of-event registration.  You must be a member of RUSA and PCH Randonneurs to register. There will be a 30 rider limit on this ride.

This is a point-to-point ride that PCH Randos last did in 2018. The ride begins in San Luis Obispo and travels south, mostly along the coast, to San Juan Capistrano. The planned overnight stop is at the Jones' house in Moorpark, where riders will be able to sleep and eat some hot food. A drop bag will be transported from the start to the overnight control, and then on to the finish.

The start is at the Motel 6 South in SLO. Riders are responsible for booking their own motel rooms and there are many hotel choices nearby. It is smart to do this well in advance- SLO hotels tend to be in high demand on spring weekends. The finish will be at the Best Western in San Juan Capistrano. There are train stations with riding distance of both the start and finish hotels.

Riders can take the Amtrak to San Luis Obispo on the Friday before the ride.  There are two Pacific Surfliner trains per day that allow you to wheel your bike in and store in a special bike area.  The bike is free, but you must add a bicycle reservation to your ticket and there is a limit to the number of bikes on one train.  The Coast Starlight also allows bikes, but for this train you wheel your bike to the baggage car and the conductor will load it into a bike area.  Another option to get to the start is to join with some friends and use a one-way rental car.

Full lights and reflective gear are required.  Please see Article 10 of the RUSA Rules for Riders.

This is a minimally supported ride.  In general, riders are responsible for finding their own food and water on course, although there may be roving support.  There will be food provided at the finish and the overnight.  There will be a limited amount of SAG, so riders should have a plan to find their own way back if they need to abandon.
