The list is still under construction.

Telegraph is fun, but Palomar is THE most technical road in the San Diego area...period.

Guys ride highland valley all the time...it's a fun route to get through to Ramona.

If you are taking the 15N you exit Pomerado rd to the right and take the first left. That is highland valley.

You will have to hook up on one of the group rides sometime and I will show you some good areas for you to refine your skills.

Don't hear much about Telegraph canyon anymore. I remember a string a bad accidents out there and I think folks kinda went away from there. I personally never rode it. There is a guy named Rawkett (he's on here) and other local boards had a horric accident out that way.

Highland valley road is an awesome road. I had so much fun on it. I rode it quite often as it was right up the street from where I lived.

Honestly, i never saw a cop on Highland. Palomar you'll have to worry about.

Telegraph is a decent ride. Not as technical as Palomar or Banner but fun none the less. It's a good ride if you can get out there before the bicyclist do. There are also some fun roads out that way. Honey Springs, Tavern, Japatul Valley and Lyons Valley. They are not heavy populated and the only thing you really have to watch for is the occasional oncoming traffic because those are shortcuts from freeways so people tend to fly through there and blow the double yellow. But they are all good.

Rich and I here went out there a few weeks ago and did some exploring...there were some bitchin roads out there huh Rich.

Tavern Rd in Alpine is really fun too.

i've only ridden telegraph canyon rd. once, but i had a blast. it was a very fun rd. lots of sweet sweepers, but just the right amount of tight twisties.
i hate lyons valley rd. too tight and lanes are too narrow. i lost it out there a few weeks back. it's a good spot for the SMs, though...

The roads I mentioned earlier are not as technical as one would think be they are still a blast to ride. They are fun if you plan on staying away from Palomar like I am. Too much stuff going on at Palomar. Not worth it if you ask me. Plus with the weather changing around here, the mountain will not be pretty much longer.

The 94 out of Rancho San Diego, all the way out to Jacumba is a blast. Done that one 5 or 6 times----- Never seen a CHiPpy (Not that I need to worry). Not technical, but can be HAUL ASS FAST........ if you dare.

Alex, we should get together and map that one out.

That is a fun ride I have done that many times. Then there is the Shell and Subway at the end to fuel up and eat at. Good Ride.
I have never seen a CHiP over in that area either. But Border Patrol all over they just like to watch us ride. No big deal from them.

^^^^^^

You say that until they pull your ass over into secondary at the checkpoint. Just because they like to watch you ride.

Yeah we can do that.

We could also hit tavern rd...and end up on the 8 in Alpine.

Let me know.
