The cloudy skies and cool temps didn't hurt our ridership too badly - ten of us rolled out of VV Park - including a new rider, Damian (Welcome!) and long-missing Pam (Welcome Back!)
The ACHD route evolved as we went along. We started off to incorporate some of the roads from the rained-out February ride, and we did pick up parts: mainly the hill sections. The Rancho Santa Fe Farms Road climb was the steepest, but we had plenty of other nice inclines to help burn off some calories - which those of us who went for the scones or cinnamon rolls at the Belen Bakery stop could use to justify the indulgence.
The photo slideshow is a bit thin: sorry, but the overcast skies tend to make the scenery look too somber! Next week's ride... Del Dios & Elfin Forest Date: Tuesday March 12, 2013 Time: 9:00am A rolling route featuring Del Dios outbound (downhill) and Elfin Forest inbound.
