Seems like the new Double Peak Challenge route was a hit: we had plenty of takers for the steep sidetrip, and those that skipped it probably will elect to go to the summit next time. While Double Peak is tough, it wasn't as bad as some of the maps make it out to be - most of our computers were reading grades between 15% and 20%. Too Easy!
We stopped at Yogurt Utopia Cafe in San Elijo Hills... uh, it was OK, but... running out of coffee??? Come on! Oh well, the word is that the old cafe location is going to reopen soon - fingers crossed on that one.
Lots of discussion today about a Big Ride... either Borrego Five-O or a Mount Palomar ride. Look for news about one of those for the first Saturday in November.
