- San Diego
Hello fellow ebikers! A couple of friends and I will be going on the 42-mile Great Western Loop here in San Diego this week. All ebikers all welcome to join us. We go at a moderate pace (3 1/2 hours to ride 42 miles) with a 3,900ft elevation. We average about 16mph on the flat road BUT on the back end we go 45+mph on the ride down the mountain. This ride is in the middle of no where (no stores, no restrooms, nowhere to get water) for the first 30 miles. So, you will need to bring enough snacks and water. At about 30 miles, we catch up to each other at a small country store with a bathroom where they sell snacks and water. We take a 20-minute break here to charge up for the last 12 miles. Let me know if you’re interested in joining us. We plan on going at least 5 more times this year. I look forward to meeting some new cycling buddies this year! Btw - if you have a Yamaha ebike (Civante, Wabash, Urban Rush, etc), this ride can be done with one full battery. I use the two highest settings on this ride and make it back to the truck with 2 miles left on the battery.
