All the weather forecasts were predicting clearing skies after nine AM, but it sure didn't turn out that way. Instead there was an abundance of cool, damp, gloom. Not that it dampened our enthusiasm for today's ACHD RIDE: we had a good turnout of six dedicated souls - all fortified with lights and windbreakers!
The group followed a meandering route out of Poway up to Lake Hodges before turning back past 4S Ranch and Santa Luz and hooking up with the 56 Bike Path. That meant riding on a few new paths and roads that aren't on our usual routes - and we chalked up plenty of climbing in the process.
The ride back on the 56 brought us to Sabre Springs, where it was an easy hop to the Champagne Bakery in Carmel Mountain Ranch for some hot drinks and pastries.
Next week, a classic route... Del Dios & Elfin Forest Date: Tuesday February 12, 2013 Time: 9:00am Hilly route featuring Del Dios outbound and Elfin Forest inbound.
