There is a fantastic view from El Capitan Lake at the turn around spot, everyone wants to delay leaving there to enjoy it more. See the picture to the right.

Mount Soledad is one of the best views in San Diego. And it is also an ideal group picture spot.
We start at 6550 Riverdale Street, San Diego 92120 [MAP], rolling at 8:30am. Park on the street. 
We pedal to Mount Soledad via Soledad Mountain Road, then descent La Jolla Mesa Road, pedal through Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, and return via the Ocean Beach bike path. 
The route is about 30 miles.

Santa Toy Ride! 
The best 'Feel Good' ride of the year. Follow Santa on his tandem for a ride with 150-400 other cyclists. See picture to the right. 
Join San Diego Bicycle Club for the 30th annual Light Up A Life Holiday Toy Ride to benefit the Salvation Army. The 40-mile round trip ride starts at 8:30am at UC Cyclery located at La Jolla Village Square [MAP]. 
Riders are asked to bring an unwrapped toy to carry to the Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center, located at University Ave. and 69th Street. Led by Santa Claus, the ride is holiday pace (slow), and everyone is welcome. The Salvation Army is collecting toys for children of all ages—toys for older children are especially appreciated—as well as canned or boxed nonperishable food. Decorate your bike in the holiday spirit. Prizes will be awarded before the ride begins to the best-decorated adult rider, junior rider, and tandem riders.
Every year the Salvation Army invites hundreds of San Diego families to select from the toys collected at the holiday distribution center. 
Various groups create their own pace on the way back. 
A threat of rain will cancel, the cancellation will be posted here.
