Hi all,

I'm on the penultimate day of my Canada-Mexico bike tour, and want to clarify one important note. The policy for entering Camp Pendleton has officially changed, and you now must obtain an authorization QR code at the south gate. The guys at the north gate this afternoon said they got notification of the change within the past two days, even though it wasn't slated to change until later in September.

I had not been notified and was denied access to base, so I took I-5 instead to Oceanside. Would've been nice if they had notified folks that pre-registered, but I guess that's what's expected from the federal government.

Happy riding to all!

That is interesting. As you note, this change was not to take affect until October 1, 2018:

I wonder if they were confused and actually denied you access due to the military exercises occurring on the base:

I will check with my contacts and see if I can determine what is going on.

Thanks,
