Belgian Waffle Ride Rolling Through San Elijo Hills, Sunday April 24th

gf-bwr-p9

The most unique one day cycling event in the country the Cervélo Belgian Waffle Ride presented by SPY, rolling through North County and San Elijo Hills, Sunday April 24, 2016. A gravel grinder with the perfect mix of dirt and tarmac to keep things interesting.

Known to provide riders with an incredibly memorable day on the bike, the Belgian Waffle Ride will take its riders on a ronde through North County San Diego, where it will clatter through agrarian hamlets and the Ardenne-like hills—not over classic mountains per se, but rather a never ending string of ups and downs—along single track climbs, sandy trails, and roughly paved roads carved through inland San Diego’s beautiful rural and sometimes forested backcountry.

Participants ride drop bar road style bikes not mountain bikes and several San Elijo Hills Residents will participate. Come out and cheer the athletes as they take the trail by the San Elijo Hills City limits sign past the Albertsons, San Elijo Middle, San Elijo Elementary on the Copper Creek trail passing the Brightwood Drive Cul-de-sac on The Garden View trail riders will return to the paved road at Queshaven Park and start the steep accent towards the summet of Double Peak Park. Riders will be passing through San Elijo Hills trails and roads at the 134 mile mark so give them a cheer, they will need it!

The ride offers two challenging routes in two different distances, the full BWR course will cover 144 miles, 11,000 ft. of vertical.

The second route, the Cervélo Belgian Wafer Ride, tops out at 68 miles and takes riders up and down a shortened course, while still including a few of the BWR’s most famous dirt sections and iconic climbs. A perfect option for those entering their first gravel grinder, the Wafer ride delivers the challenge and excitement of the Waffle ride in a fun-sized package.

A fully supported ride with CHP escorts, a multitude of support vehicles and feed stations dotted throughout.

Here’s the course by the numbers:

  • 146 MILES OR 235 kilometers
  • 13 CATEGORIZED CLIMBS (INCLUDING THREE CATEGORY 2 CLIMBS)

  • 13,000 FEET OF CLIMBING

  • 17 DIRT SECTIONS OVER 40 MILES (LONG, SANDY, WET, ROCKY, HILLY, UGLY)

  • 14 WATER CROSSINGS (OR FOOT BRIDGE CROSSINGS)

  • 3 KOMS

  • 10 FEED ZONES

– The winner of this year’s event will take around 8 hours to complete the course. This means for most it’s an 11-12- or 15-hour day on the bike.

The “Keepin’ it Rural” 5K/10K Hike and Trail Run

12031363_1042613869124527_4951592216726092640_o
An important fundraiser is taking place this fall (Sunday, October 25) at the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve. The “Keeping’ it Rural 5K/10K hike and trail run will take place in the upper part of the reserve (with the blessing of OMWD, TECC, EFHG Fire and RSF Fire). It is the first of many fundraising efforts we will be embarking on in order to put up a good fight against things that threaten the rural environment we cherish. I’ve included the details of the event below:

Here’s where we would love to have community support:

a) REGISTER FOR THE EVENT: we want as many residents of the Harmony Grove, Elfin Forest, Eden Valley and surrounding communities (and their families) to participate in either the 5K hike/run or the 10K run. It will be early in the morning so hopefully pretty cool and quite scenic. So click HERE to sign up for the event (or copy and paste this into your browser: https://www.runreg.com/the-elfin-forest-keeping-it-rural-5k10kletskeepitruralcom)

b) VOLUNTEER TO HELP: we ALSO need about 20-25 volunteers (water, registration, timing, direction, bag stuffing and other areas). Please let us know if you are willing and able to help. Anyone with EMT or CPR or first aid background would be appreciated as well.

c) SPONSORSHIP SOLICITATION: if you know of any companies that would like to be associated with the “Keepin’ it Rural” event, please reach out to them and see if you can get donations of cash, items, services. Sponsorships are crucial to making these events able to raise more funds than the entry fees.

Here are the pertinent details:

SCHEDULE: Registration starts: 6:45am | 10k Race Kickoff: 7:45am | 5K Race Kickoff: 8am

5K PRICING: $40 early bird (before 9/25) | $50 regular | $60 day of event. Includes finisher t-shirt and medal.

10K PRICING: $55 early bird | $75 regular | $85 day of
Includes finisher t-shirts as well as age group awards and prizes (SPY sunglasses for age group winners)

FAMILY FRIENDLY: 1K kids fun run, free with adult admission | Bouncy House and/or other kid friendly events.

EXPO/ RACE START: Staging area by the dam on Via Ambiente @ Harmony Grove Road | Beer Garden, expo, product giveaways, raffles and much more
