4th of July Scripps Ranch 28 Mile Bike Ride
Presented by the Scripps Ranch Old Pros, the 4th of July 28 Mile Bike Ride is designed for both the dedicated and weekend riders. It takes you on a clearly marked course through parts of Rancho Penasquitos, Santaluz, Del Sur, Rancho Bernardo and Poway. It includes some serious hills including the Pomerado hill stretch from Poway to Scripps Ranch. Review the course below so you can properly pace yourself for this ride.

- Roving SAG support on all courses.

28 Mile Bike Ride Information
You can pick-up your Ride Bib one of three ways:
- Day of the Race: go to the Registration Area prior to the race. The Check-in tables open at 6:00am and are are located at the intersection of Scripps Ranch Blvd. and Hibert St..
- Day before the Race: you can pick up your bib at Hoyt Park on July 3rd between 3:00pm and 6:00pm.
- Mail: we’ll mail your bib and ride packet directly to you for an additional $2.00 (if you register by 6/15/13)
Your bib must be attached to an outer garment or to your bike frame so that it is visible. Failure to do so may result in your removal from the course. Keep your bib with you after you ride as it provides access to many post-ride amenities and is needed to receive your commemorative t-shirt.
