Everyday brings new cars into the 101 Cafe. Some bring back memories of yesterday while others are just Mom & Dads bringing their kids in to begin a new tradition for their families. Keep your eyes out for the ride of your life.

The annual SURFMonkey event in Oceanside CA has something for everyone at the beach. The 5K run goes along The Strand up on the Pier and then down the beach and returns at the Historic Bandshell for a picture finish. The run, swim paddle event is a moving beach festival. If you missed it this year then mark next August for its return.

Some of us locals have been cruising The Strand six we could sip up in a car. I enjoy it anytime of the year. The beach is full of surf camps and kids as well as families camping out for a long sunny day. You can't get more picturesque that having the Pier as your backdrop. The present Pier is the latest rendition of our first Pier that was finished before we incorporated as a city in 1888. Enjoy the cruise which is just blocks from the 101 Cafe.

The 101 Cafe is blessed with cool rides everyday. We will try to document more for your enjoyment. We do a new T-shirt design each year and will be looking for just the right vehicles to put into our design. Bring your ride down and take a photo of it and either leave it at the Cafe or email it to OsideNow@gmail.com
See you at the Cafe...
Being a Local I have cruised Oceanside's Beaches since I was small. Of course the ultimate cruise is along The Strand. No matter what time of year it is there is always the beauty of the blue Pacific and people enjoying the sun and surf. Riding, jogging, walking or laying on the sand it is people watching at its best.
See you at the Beach...

Given time we see so many cool rides at the Cafe. I came up from the beach on the 4Th of July and found that a group of scooters had brought their owners to the Cafe. It just so happens the Highway 101 Association wants to put on a Scooter Cruise this August along the Historic Highway between Oceanside and La Jolla. Maybe they already know how cool the Highway is to cruise?

It is and incredible feat to participate in the Race Across America. No matter what you do for the race it is a big commitment to either put on the race, crew for the riders or ride. Everyone deserves KUDOS. Today the elite men, women and some teams began their journey of three thousand miles to Annapolis. You will be able to follow them online. RAA teams will start Saturday at 2:00 pm. It should be a great day since the City has closed The Strand to cars for a bikes only day, its only fitting.

There is an actual date given to the beginning of Summer, but I would argue that it really begins in your community when certain things begin to happen. In Oceanside, first the beach needs to fill with goers who are coming no matter what the weather, second all of the easy parking becomes sparse in the morning hours and third when I5 going South backs up by 11:00 AM in the morning. This last weekend combined all three of the necessary ingredients to announce the beginning of Summer 2009. We are ready for the increase of guest and look forward to another great Summer.
I forgot the great Rock Concert by 94.9 yesterday. It sold out within hours. The Bandshell at the Pier is a HOT venue again.

There are few things that remain the same over long periods of time. Along Oceanside's beaches you can depend upon the Pier, the Bandshell, The Strand and Robert's Cottages. Roberts was built in the 1920's as an Auto Court and provide beachfront housing albeit about 200 square feet since then. In the 1950's the cottages became one of California's first condominiums. Exactly the date and when they decided upon the salmon(pink) color and roof material is unknown, but for my lifetime you could depend upon it. Checkout the video view then look at the colors on three units. One can only assume that the homeowners have decided upon a change. I am not sure what to say?

The Highway 101 Association produced the Beach Cities 101 Cruise May 3rd. The route followed the Historic Highway 101 between Oceanside and La Jolla. Cruisers seemed to enjoy the idea of a drive with no registration($$) and judging, but the fun of seeing and being seen along one of the world's most beautiful roads. We want to thank the North County Times and the San Diego Union Tribune for getting the word out. It was the Association's first attempt to promote an event with only the use of the Internet, a first for a cruise! We learned a few things from this attempt and hope to do more cruises in the future.
We will promote the Beach'n 101 Cruise the traditional way with fliers, posters and car council meetings as well as the Internet. The Fourth Beach'n 101 Cruise will be September 7, 2009 this year. It promises to be bigger and more fun than ever.
