(South Twin Oaks Valley Rd becomes westbound San Elijo Rd and arrives there too). Right (south) onto Elfin Forest Rd, miles down at a sharp left bend it becomes Harmony Grove Rd. Follow ~0.4 mi. Look for the Via Ambiente road and parking on right (south side).

From I-15 in Escondido:   Exit Hwy78 to Nordahl southbound. Go across W. Mission Rd. and ~.2 mi turn Right (west) onto Country Club Dr. Follow south to Harmony Grove Rd., turn right (west) ~2.2 mi to Via Ambiente rd on the left (south side) and find a place to park. You will drive past the Elfin Forrest park entrance.

North Coast Church Single Adult Ministries (SAM) Bikers:

 At last! We finally have another bike ride scheduled.

Our next bike ride will be on Saturday, October 24, 2020 when we will ride the fun and easy flat San Luis Rey River bike path. This is one of our most popular rides. We will be meeting at North Coast Church at 2405 North Santa Fe Avenue near the southwest corner of the parking lot at 9:15am and start riding at 9:30am. We will ride down North Santa Fe until we intersect the bike path and then ride along the path to the Oceanside Harbor.

 If you want to join us at Mance Buchanon Park you should plan to be there at 9:30am to be ready to join us as we ride by around 9:45am. Be aware that parking can sometimes be difficult to find at the park. Please call us if you will be meeting us at the park so we know to look for you there.

 As always, significant rain cancels and helmets are mandatory. Dress according to the weather. Bring a water bottle and some quick energy food. You can reach Steve Kunkel on his cell at (619) 40three-60six3 with any last minute questions.

 You must have a face mask in your possession. It is not necessary to ride with it on, but you must wear one in public restrooms or public buildings.

 See you on October 24th!

 Steve Kunkel and David Uhle
