The Rosarito-Ensenada Bike Ride
The eighty-mile cycling event is a display of fantastic scenery between Rosarito and Ensenada (Baja California) via moderately challenging ride. Riders cruise along the breathtaking Pacific Coast The ride this year is scheduled for September 27, 2014
Riders will peddle anywhere from 2 to 7 hours (over 80 miles). The length of the ride is held on paved road. According to those who have ridden the event in the past – proficient cyclists can make the journey in about two hours while the average amount of time for inexperienced and unhealthy people is around 8 hours. Anyone still riding by 4 PM will risk being struck by a motorist unable to see the bicycle at night.
The first part of the trek is along the pacific coast where the roads are mostly flat. The end of the run is more challenging with hills but if you stay focused you can complete the course without crying or falling down and acting like a baby. Those who make it past this challenging second leg of the course will find the third leg which leads to a cruise down an incline back toward the ocean town of Ensenada. This section can be dangerous for those who don’t have braking control may lose control over the cliffs! Make it through the downhill portion of the ride and you’ll find the last section of course en route to the after-party in Ensenada.
