Presented by the Scripps Ranch Old Pros, the 4th of July 50 Mile Bike Ride is for serious riders who’ve been training for some time. We don’t suggest you attempt this ride unless you are in top condition. Grueling is the word of the day here. Review the course below so you can properly pace yourself for this ride.
Dust off the bikes and air up the tires, and if you like, take your bike over to our sponsor Black Mountain Bicycles to get it checked out before the day of the event. Then join us at the corner of Scripps Ranch Boulevard and Hibert St. for the start of a day of fun in the sun in San Diego.
- Aid stations with limited bicycle repair by Black Mountain Bicycles.
- Roving SAG support on all courses.
- Post-ride refreshments. 21+ picture ID required for beer garden.
- Commemorative T-shirts to all registered participants.
- Post-ride drawings for prizes donated by local businesses. Ride participation not required.
50 Mile Bike Ride Information
You can pick-up your Ride Bib one of three ways:
- Day of the Ride: go to the Registration Area prior to the ride. 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 Ride: 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 $2.50 if you register by June 15. Bibs will be mailed the week of June 15.
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.
Parking is available on Treena Street and in the parking garage at Cush Plaza – 10620 Treena Street. Please do not park in No Parking areas or in private parking lots or you may have your car towed.
The 50 Mile Bike Ride starts at 7:00am on July 4th.

This year we’re expanding our Craft Beer Garden to make it even more awesome. Sip sip hooray!
We’re not just making it bigger—we’re also adding more craft beer in addition to your favorites from Ballast Point and other local craft breweries.
Did we mention it’s completely free with your registration? Just make sure to bring your ID and run or ride bib to the garden entrance and we’ll get you right in.
