There are rest rooms at the start.   Map Link to ride start 

Camp Pendleton Access: If you registered before July 22nd with the USMC on-line you can still ride through the base in August with out a Bike Pass on the 'old' pre-authorization system.

If not registered, you can get to the Main Gate Visitor Center (M-F before 3pm) before the 11th to get your new Bike Pass (good for 1 year & free!)
