        This coastal route is popular for training among bicyclists and SDSE members on weekend mornings. In most locations the road has a wide shoulder/bike lane. We have found many bicyclists to enjoy the company of an inline skater drafting behind them.
        Today's coast highway continues through north San Diego county including the coastal communities of Cardiff, Encinitas, Leucadia, and Carlsbad before entering Oceanside. The moderately rolling hills and beautiful scenery are excellent for training.
        We recommend that skaters new to this route join SDSE for one of our morning skates rather than trying to skate the route themselves. In order to avoid traffic and areas of rough pavement, our route is a loop course which is too difficult to describe here. Here we provide directions to our meeting point so that you can join us.
        From I-5 exit at Palomar Airport Rd. and go east. Turn left at the first light (Paseo del Norte). Turn left into the first driveway. We meet in the section of the Holiday Inn parking lot closest to the gas station on your left.
