ElliptiGO Rally Weekend
October 17 - 18, 2015
Thank you to everyone who joined us last year for the ElliptiGO Rally in San Diego. It’s always fun to connect with old friends and be able to meet many of you for the first time. We are excited to be just around the corner from another Rally weekend and are looking forward to an even bigger and better event this year!
The schedule for the 2015 weekend is below. If you plan to attend any of the weekend’s events, please RSVP as soon as possible so we can be sure to have enough support and refreshments for everyone.
Don't live near San Diego, but would still like to join us?
We will have a number of ElliptiGOs available for out-of-town owners to borrow if you would otherwise have to ship your bike to participate. They will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so please send an email to Erin to let her know you would like to reserve one.
If you have other questions about the Rally Weekend, please email Erin: firstname.lastname@example.org.

For 2015 we are trying something new. Sunday morning we will be gathering at Java Depot (243 N Hwy 101) in Solana Beach for group rides north along the coast on HWY101. We will again have three different routes that will leave at different times.
The intent is to have everyone arrive back at Java Depot at around the same time (11:00 AM) to hang out and catch up. From there, whoever is interested can either eat right at Java Depot or head to a nearby restaurant for brunch.
Long route (8am Start)
North to Oceanside Pier and back (35mi) – Riders in this group will depart at 8:00 AM with a plan of averaging at least 14mph and being back at Java Depot no later than 11:00 AM.
Middle-Distance (9am Start) route
North to Carlsbad Village and back (20mi) – Riders in this group will depart at 9:00 AM with a plan of averaging about 12 miles per hour and being back at Java Depot no later than 11:00 AM.
Short route (10am Start)
North to Moonlight Beach and back (10mi) – Riders in this group will depart at 9:45 AM with a plan of averaging 12 mph and being back at Java Depot no later than 11:00 AM.
11:00 am – Meet back at Java Depot for group breakfast/brunch. All group riders are on their own for food/beverages.
For out-of-town visitors we have compiled a short list of hotel options in a variety of price ranges. Hotels in the Solana Beach area will be close to the Rally events on Saturday and hotels in Mission Bay (~16 miles from Solana Beach) will be close to the Time Trial on Sunday.
