Training Requirements

To qualify for the RAC the following requirements must be completed:

  • Training Rides
    • You must participate in at least one official RAC training ride per month. You should really ride with us every weekend though . . . we're that fun!
    • Please arrive 15 minutes early.
    • Make sure your water bottles and/or CamelBaks are full.
    • 5th graders need to carry their own water.
    • Don't forget sunscreen!
    • Bring one spare inner tube for each bike (and make sure it's the right size).
  • Training Miles
    • You must ride at least 300 training miles before the RAC begins. This is really the bare minimum. You'll be a lot happier if you train more. The 56 Bike Path isn't very exciting, but it's a good safe option if you want to get a quick ride in. Up and down the full length between Black Mountain Road and the end is 16 miles with some pretty good hills. Click here to see the route.
  • Required Rides
    • Two Escondido Hill Rides (we offer 10 Escondido Rides). Attend all 10 and that's 380 miles right there! Set a new record!
