Camp Pendleton Closed?

We’re supposed to be notified by Caltrans in San Diego when the base is closed. But we’ve had no official warning– just disgruntled and tired bicyclists returning against our current 20+mph winds. Marine guards are stopping all bicycle traffic at the extreme southern end of San Mateo St. Park, telling them to turn around.

While awaiting word from Caltrans District 11 that it’s officially OK to ride the freeway south of San Clemente, all we can say is, if you have to get to Oceanside, get on at the Basilone on-ramp south of Trestles Beach and pray CHP doesn’t see you.
