RUSA Dart Populaire 120k


This will be a sociable Dart Populaire following the normal Dart rules. See the RUSA rules at We will form teams of 3 to 5 riders (tandems count as two riders). Each team has a captain who is responsible for the route design and ensuring their team follows the rules. If you want to captain a team, or find a team, or just have questions – contact me at

Team captains will need to submit a route to me by May 5th with appropriate controls including the 25 km control (see the RUSA rules).

We will all finish at San Juan Capistrano at 4pm at the Bad to the Bone BBQ. The San Juan Capistrano Amtrak/Metrolink station is about a mile away. The finish is roughly 120 km away from San Diego, Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Riverside. It can be approached in either direction on the San Juan Creek trail.

I rode my first Dart Populaire with the San Diego group last year and enjoyed it so much I thought I would host one of my own. I hope we all have as much fun as I did.
