The USMC have advised the cycling community that failure to obey their single file riding rule and leaving the designated route from Las Pulgas gate to the Main Gate may jeopardize continued access to non-military cyclists.
CalTrans has made the shoulders wid ealong the 5 Freeway and as there is no other way to get from LAs Pulgas to Oceanside, it is legal to ride on the freeway shoulder if the base is closed to you...
Remember also to renew your on line registration to ride through the base; the USMC has s system in place to register you in advance for one year.  If not registered you may be turned away at the gate to experience the freeway shoulder.
