Best ever turnout for VVV's Borrego Five-O ride: seven riders took up the challenge of the Montezuma Grade and all arrived at Ranchita for the obligatory Yeti photo.
The weather was nearly perfect with only mild headwinds on San Felipe Road and through Sentenac Canyon. Our only disappointment was at Tamarisk Grove; despite the news from the randonneurs who were there on Thursday, the campground hasn't opened yet, so... no bathrooms and no water. Oh well, it was only another 11 miles or so back into town.
The post-ride beers and combo plates at Carmelita's provided just the right ending for the day!
