Day 3: Great Western loop – 40 mi

There is no packing up today as we will stay in Alpine and enjoy one of San Diego’s most popular back country cycling routes; The Great Western Loop. Tonight we will have authentic Mexican food at a local restaurant. Since San Diego borders with Mexico you will find that the foods taste is much better than the “Mexican food" found elsewhere in the USA.

Today’s ride will take your breath away as you climb out of Alpine and up Mount Laguna. Mount Laguna is San Diego’s highest mountain summiting at 6000 feet.

We will stay in a small boutique hotel and enjoy dinner on our own at a local restaurant. Julian is a unique authentically preserved western town that is known for its famous Apple Pie. The downtown streets are full of pie shops, restaurants, antique stores, and art galleries. If you are up for an adventure take a tour through the old gold mine or try your hand at gold panning.
