Plenty of sunshine for our ride today, but not at all the toasty warm weather one might expect just three days from the Summer Solstice. There was even a bit of cloud cover trying to hang on along parts of the coast, but not enough to dampen our riding fun. We had 11 riders rolling out from the park today and a vague plan to hook up enroute with Colleen and Mary Ann, but that was not to be. So we had two VVV rides today: a Big Group Ride and a Small Group Ride!
Our Big Ride covered 55 miles and a fair amount of climbing, so a cafe stop was mandatory. We chose the venerable Java Depot in Solana Beach - they have plenty of choices for the hungry cyclist and bike racks. The roadwork in the area is almost done; and the sharrows make it a lot easier to ride there through Encinitas!
Next week's ride should be enjoyable - especially if we make a stop at EscoGelato... A Bit Of Harmony Date: Tuesday June 25, 2013 Time: 9:00am Ride through northern Escondido into San Marcos; side trip into Harmony Grove on return to Escondido. Cheers, Steve
