We took off today on a nice loop around Escondido and San Marcos with mild temps and blue skies all around. Compared to some of our rides, the climbing today was pretty low-key, although Rose Ranch did provide a steep grade. The nice thing about climbing Rose Ranch is the payback: that great descent to Mulberry Road. Out in San Marcos we got to ride over the new bridge at Borden Road. Now that the bridge is in, we really don't need to climb Rose Ranch,, but likely will continue to do so, just for fun.
So what really got the turnout up to 14 riders today? I figure it was the promise of a stop at EscoGelato. They do a great job with their flavor selection, but it seems to change. So I guess you can't get to attached to one favorite... yeah, I'm thinking about that lemon ginger... but today's raspberry sorbet was a good replacement!
Next week, it's time for who knows what, but with the Fourth of July so close, "Red, White, and Blue" kit is in order...
ACHD Ride Date: Tuesday July 2, 2013 Time: 9:00am Anything Can Happen Day. Group choice for route. Cheers, Steve
