Cycle for a Cause

The Recovery Ride is a super fun charity bike ride now in it’s fifth year, that raises funds and awareness for local San Diego nonprofit organizations in the areas of recovery from alcohol and drugs, and HIV/AIDS education and treatment. Our three routes – 12 miles (the “Fun Ride”), 25 miles (the “Strand fide”) and 40 miles (the “Olympian Ride”) have a little bit of everything – enthusiasm, cheers, cupcakes and maybe a few tears – and will leave you with the feeling you just made a difference. Join us!

The Routes

The Fun Ride 12 MI Route

For the more casual riders among us … a fun ride along mostly protected bike paths with volunteers along the way; lots to see and celebrate.

The Strand Ride 25 MI Route

A little further, this route also starts at Swiss Village and winds further up the Strand along bike paths with a quick stop at the beach for selfies. YOU CAN DO IT – NO RIDER LEFT “STRAND-ED”!

The Olympian Ride 40 MI Route

Not for the faint at heart … but definitely for those training for other rides, or wanting a challenge, this route – with inland and coastal sprints – will definitely “get your heart in gear!”
