Peter Listing Owner 175 Reviews The Oceanside Double Century is one of the double centuries included in the prestigious California Triple Crown Series. First, let me say this double has the best paved roads ever, and in my opinion, the best paved roads of all the doubles! It also has the scenery that best depicts California which include the ocean, the mountains and the desert, all in one double century! This double has relatively few turns. The bulk of the signals will be along the ocean which will be mostly green when your are coming through in the early morning. We will take Pacific Coast Highway all the way down to Solana Beach, which involves no tuns after the first immediate turn out of the ride start. The route then urns inland embracing a few rollers, heading over to the first Rest Stop on the edge of Escondido. From here you’ll wind around making your way towards the first mountain climb, heading up the five mile mountain grade towards the small town of Ramona. The climbing continues on a less traveled road, Old Julian, up to an even smaller town, Santa Ysabel. From here it is one mile up to the 2nd Rest Stop, Inja Park. Another 6 miles of gentle winding road takes the rider to the one-horse town of Julian, which is all an old country-western town that is all of one block long. Here is the summit for the first half of the ride. An 18 mile scenic decent on the other side takes you down the other side where you’ll be greeted by the beautiful autumn desert terrain. There will be one short chocolate chip hill, then multiple dips that are not hills, just little dips.
