For a day when there was no set route, we managed to cobble together a fairly nice tour of Poway, the 56 bike path, Pacific Highlands, 4S Ranch, and Rancho Bernardo. There was a respectable amount of climbing, but no knee-breaking elevations. It was supposed to be a Hot day, but with a consistent breeze out of the west it seemed pleasant enough for this ride.
We rolled with 11 riders, 12 counting Jerry's friend Nestor, who met us along the way. There were kits of Red White and Blue, and some TDF maillot jaune. Your's Truly supplied the Flat Rest Break today! Sorry if it took a bit of extra time to complete - I'm not adept at swapping out the rear wheel on that circa 1984 Benotto.
The cafe stop was at Coffee bean & Tea Leaf in 4S Ranch. They have a delish Ice Blended Mocha with whipped cream. We may even see pictures of the VVV crew at CB&TL if I get some forwarded to me... Until then: think Peach-Infused Iced Green Tea thoughts!
And not to forget: a welcome shout-out for Catherine who rode with VVV for the first time today!
