Update 2/13/2018: Arch Ride 2018 is SOLD OUT.  Thanks to all our members who signed up early.  Start climbing!  
------------

Fluff up that grass skirt and get your TIKI on at this SDMBA signature event!

The SDMBA team is hard at work planning the 2018 edition with some surprises. Riders will meander their way from a new start venue - San Elijo Park - to Green Flash Brewing experiencing a variety of terrain through the open spaces of central San Diego County.

What you need to know:
ROUTE: At ~50 miles and ~5,000 feet of climbing the Arch is a strenuous ride. This is a point to point ride that starts at San Elijo Park in San Marcos and ends at Green Flash Brewing in Mira Mesa. Plan carpools and transportation accordingly. This route passes through many different trails jurisdictions which are almost all for non-motorized transport only. This means that e-bikes are not permitted for use on the Arch Ride.

Aid stations are spaced at approximately mile 12, mile 22 and mile 34.

It is a serious endeavor to complete the route and participants must train for it to be physically able to handle this extreme level of physical challenge. Start logging those miles now. Share your progress#archride2018

As a registered participant you will receive an email on Thursday, April 5 with a route description and map. We do not publicize the route ahead of time although much of it is rideable year round, weather permitting. Much of the route is similar to the last few years with a few surprises thrown in. We have special permission on this day only to pass through certain sections of private property to complete this specific Archipelago route.

MEMBERSHIP: SDMBA membership or recently recorded donation is required to participate. Membership does not guarantee a spot on the ride. We have about 4x number of members than spots available for the ride, but not every SDMBA member will want to sign up for the ride. Any questions regarding status? archride@sdmba.com

REGISTRATION: Donation to participate in the Arch Ride is $95.

Includes: ride entry, ride support at start and 3 aid stations, 1 lunch ticket, 1 Green Flash beer ticket, 1 opportunity drawing ticket, and custom Arch Ride 2018 SockGuy Socks!

For those that pre-ordered Jerseys:  Jerseys will be available for pick up at Arch Ride Happy Hour event on Thursday, April 5 at Green Flash 5 - 8 p.m. or at the start of the Arch Ride on Saturday, April 7.
A limited number of jerseys will be available for sale at the event for $80.00

T-SHIRTS: Arch Ride TShirts available for order during the registration process for $15.00 each. Fabulous design being worked on as we speak. 

VOLUNTEERS: It takes a tiki village to run this event. If you would like to volunteer to help please email volunteer@sdmba.com

Proceeds from this fundraising bike ride will go to some of our conservation partners that help preserve and protect our open spaces. Without these conservation partners we would not have these natural places to ride. Funds will also be directed to further SDMBA’s mission to provide networks of sustainable trails and bike parks, and provide mountain bikers and other non-motorized trail users with recreational, athletic and educational opportunities.
