April 6, 2019! 
Fluff up that grass skirt and get your TIKI on at this SDMBA signature event! 

Registration will open to the public on  January 18, 2019.  Current members will receive an email invitation to register before event is open to the public.
Membership is highly encouraged.  Join or Renew HERE.

The SDMBA team is hard at work planning the 2019 edition with more surprises than ever including the first ever "Half Arch" Ride!  The finish line 'luau' at Green Flash Brewing Co.  will be the best ever with the fun overflowing in the parking lot with more food, vendors, and cold beverages! A most epic opportunity drawing will send some lucky 'ohana' home with goodies.  Families, friends and cheering squads are invited to join in the fun! 

"Full Arch" Ride:  Riders will meander their way from San Elijo Park to Green Flash Brewing Co. in Mira Mesa,  experiencing a variety of terrain through the open spaces of central San Diego County. The point-to-point route will cover just short of 50 miles and almost 5000 feet of climbing and is a serious endeavor route and participants must train for it to be physically able to handle this extreme level of physical challenge. Start logging those miles now.  Three fully stocked aid stations will be at approximately mile 12, 22, and 34. 

"Half Arch" Ride:  A "pint-sized" version of the classic covering approximately 20 miles and 2500 feet of elevation gain starting at Sun Devil Way at Black Mountain Open Space Park, hitting up aid station #3 at Black Mountain Community Park (at approximately mile 6) and continuing on to Green Flash Brewing Company along the traditional Full Arch Route. 

REGISTRATION: 
Full Arch Ride $95.00
Half Arch Ride $75.00

Includes: ride entry, ride support at start locations and aid stations, 1 lunch ticket, 1 Green Flash beer ticket, 1 opportunity drawing ticket, and custom Arch Ride 2019 Sock Guy Socks!

All participants: 

  • Both routes are point-to-point. Plan transportation, carpools and transportation accordingly. SDMBA does not provide shuttles for this event.
  • 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.
  • As a registered participant you will receive an email on Thursday, April 4 with a route description and map files. We do not publicize the route ahead of time although much of it is rideable year round, weather permitting. Much of the "Full Arch" 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.
  • Any minors 18 or under, need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian on the entire route. 
Limited Shuttle Rides from Green Flash to start locations offered by The Beaten Path. $25 per ride with 20% coming back to SDMBA.   See details and sign up.
