    Has anyone rode a bicycle, touring the area of Borrego Springs where the dinosaurs (metal) are? I would like to know how long the ride is to see them all and what time of year would be the best. I would appreciate any comments.

    I just went to a cycling camp out there. To see the actual dinosaurs you just ride down that road. It doesn't take that long. Are you asking about riding to Borrego Springs from central San Diego? Depending on how strong a rider you are, you can get there in one day, no problem, but you'll want to spend the night once you get there. A few of us have ridden there and back via Pine Valley. Unless you're a hardy sort, you might want to avoid the heat in summer.

    Somewhat helpful if you are looking to ride around Borrego Springs to see the sculptures:

    Ride your bike around Borrego's prehistoric sculptures
    And stay for the stars

    Borrego Springs is the unincorporated town in San Diego’s desert area surrounded by Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. It is an official International Dark Sky Community where you can really see the stars at night. Also, the home of over 130 metal sculptures commissioned by Dennis Avery. Metal sculptor Ricardo Breceda constructed the sculptures, called “Sky Art” by the late Dennis Avery.

    Begin the bike ride on the north side of Christmas Circle at the intersection of Palm Canyon Drive and Borrego Springs Road. Most of the life-like metal sculptures are replicas of early Pleistocene animals that roamed this valley several million years ago based on the fossil record as described in the award-winning book Fossil Treasures of the Anza-Borrego Desert.
