Swami's Cycling Club Presents.... Our 3nd Annual Swamdo Century!

"Swamdo" is short for Swami's Fondo, bringing the spirit of the Gran Fondo rides to a club event.  This year we are taking the routes inland again for some challenging routes your legs, heart and lungs are sure to enjoy.  This is some beautiful country you won't want to miss!

All rides depart from Iron Fist Brewery in Vista.  Perhaps more important than the ride itself is the party that follows. Join us from 12pm-5pm at the Fist for delicious tacos made fresh by the Taco Guy, along with beer, wine, and less popular beverages.  The party is included in the registration, and definitely a highlight of the event.

Your ride length choice need not be made now - prices are the same for each event ($40 members/$50 non-members).  The routes overlap, and so depending on how you are feeling at both decision points, you can decide to head back early to make the most of the party, or continue your ride into the afternoon hours.

Full Century Route (Gran):  100.6 miles / 7432 ft (4 rest stops)

Please note:  As this is a club event, we will not be posting route signs, etc, as you may expect from a more formal venue.  Please download the event to your GPS unit. Alternatively, route sheets will be prepared prior to the event.

ALL rules of the road must be obeyed on this ride.
