Taco Tuesday rides are a San Diego mid year favorite! Nothing says summer fun like Taco Tuesday.
We are again meeting at the Trek Bicycle Superstore in Kearny Mesa [MAP] for a weekly ride to Mission Valley and, time permitting, to the coast. We return by climbing Linda Vista Road. While Linda Vista Road is around 300 feet of climbing, it is spread over 4.2 miles so it is very gentle climbing. It is ideal for both those not in as good shape as they would like to be as well as those who want to set a new Personal Record on the climb. And everyone enjoys the post ride cycling conversation at Rubio’s [MAP] with $1.79 tacos. Order 2 tacos and a side of chips and get change from $5!
Join your cycling friends or make new ones. We usually have about a dozen riders. The split is usually half males and half females.
No one gets left behind!
Arrive whenever, we do announcements shortly before 5:30pm and leave sharp at that time. See you there!

"Coach Darryl fit my bike to me, suggested a saddle change and I just took off, literally 🙂. Between the fit, the saddle and the tips, I completed my first Century this spring. I would never have made it with my bike in it’s old configuration. He’s a delight to work with, calm and open and relaxed. I recommend him without reservation."

"you really did an outstanding job of keeping your troops informed, motivated, trained, inspired, and ultimately, successful. Over the past couple of days, I've thought--I really couldn't (or wouldn't!) have done it without the benefit of the team." (Written just after completing a century, the final ride of the 16 week Trek Bicycle Superstore Century Training Series.)"
Donna, June 2019
"My first century, Super excited! Grateful for Trek, the rides and especially for coach Darryl, a font of wisdom for all things cycling. This Spring series helped me grow from a casual rider to a century rider. I’ll see you at future rides. My next bike will absolutely be a Trek. Thank you!!"

"For the past 10 or so Saturdays I've been participating in the Trek Century training class. The weekly rides have been great, but the leaders are tremendous. Coach Darryl MacKenzie has provided so much more than leadership--he coaches every rider to give them practical tips on how to improve speed and performance--be it posture, safety, bike maintenance, bike fitting, sports nutrition, bike computers, traffic avoidance and even how to climb those d*** hills. He gives real-time advice to every rider, which somehow makes every challenge a little easier. His positive attitude is contagious! After 50 miles or so, that can-do attitude makes a big difference! Everyone in the group is now pedaling longer distances with less effort. Another plus, he genuinely cares. Thanks to Trek, and thanks to Darryl for this great (and free!) opportunity."

"I owe a lot to this guy! May he be the path for you to being a better and safer rider."
Ken F. April 2019
"Beginning many years ago with your Trek store spin classes, continuing with the bike fit and now, the ride guide ‘on the road’ suggestions and encouragement, my skills, endurance and safety have improved because of you!
Keep the suggestions and thoughts coming. They are appreciated. I am listening."
"My best time up Torrey Pines. 9:07! A year ago 12:43. Thanks Coach for all your help. You have helped me immensely."
"Coach Darryl is exceptional. As a new road cyclist, he helped me learn how to properly position myself on my new road bike and meticulously measured and fit the bike to my body so that I can grow, perform, and love to ride. Thank you Coach Darryl!"
"Coach Darryl is the gift that keeps on giving. His advice and counsel have made all the difference in my cycling"
