The Boob Ride Orange County
Saturday, April 29th, 2023
The Boob Ride is always a lot of fun. Coastal scenery, good friends, a challenging ride (or be casual about it), capped off with a big Last Mile Party, and then catch the charter bus home.
- The event is capped at 300. We are trying to keep our event intimate and manage all the logistics. So, you'd better get signed up ASAP.
- Transportation back to OC is still in the planning stages. We are looking for a sponsor for the charter buses. We are also looking for a great charter bus company that will help us on cost. If you register before we have resolved the transportation, we will email you with a link to buy a return ticket.
- The Tidewater Tavern will be the destination for the Last Mile Party
- The buffet will be available at the Last Mile Party. Contact us if you would like to sponsor the buffet.
- The official course includes a small segment on I-5. Those that rode the freeway last year liked it. They said the cars were not moving at all (go figure, the 5 is backup on a Saturday) and it was no problem to pass all the cars. Camp Pendleton has restricted base access. You need to a base pass to ride through the base. Details are here on how to ride the freeway or get a base pass.
We are always looking for volunteers that want to have a lot of fun for a good cause. Click here to volunteer.

Routes, Schedules, and so Forth
- A-Cup is only available at the San Diego event, which starts in Solana Beach on the same day at 9:00 AM. Here are the details for that event.
- B-Cup is a U-turn route. This route is designed for those that want to support the cause and do some of the ride with their friends. You can start with the D or C groups, ride as far as you want to, and turn around as you see fit. Some would say that this is the perfect size, not too small and not too big. Just right! However, you will miss the famous post ride party.
- Suggested route is here, but you can go further or turn around sooner.
- Start is 8:00 am or sooner
- C-Cup is a 60 mile ride directly to Solana Beach.
- Route map is here.
- Group start is 7:30 am, but you can start sooner.
- D-Cup is a 90 mile ride through the Elfin Forest and Rancho Sante Fe. This is a very scenic, but a very hilly and challenging route. Make sure you have the legs and lungs for before you take on this one. Just in case you change your mind, you can stay on PCH at Palomar Airport Road and finish with the C-Group. DO NOT sign up for this route unless you can average better than 16 mph, handle 4,500 feet of climbing, and have less than 1 hour of stoppage time. The buses and trucks will be gone if you come in after 2:15. GONE!
