The air was crisp for the start of today's ride, but fortunately the early going was mostly under blue skies with calm winds. The pleasant weather, after so much rain recently, was an auspicious start to 2013. And there was also a good turnout of eight riders for the inaugural Fallbrook Metric Century.
Our reward for giving up TV, Rose Parade, and some rather exciting Bowl Games was some great riding with very few cars. Of course, we had a few hills to climb along the way, just to add a little extra interest, and naturally: the mandatory flat tires. Our stop in Bonsall was the très chic McDonald's - not that anyone complained - and I for one appreciated their McCafé Frappé Mocha!
Hope to see you for next week's ride... Del Dios Loop Date: Tuesday January 8, 2013 Time: 9:00am Out to Fairbanks Ranch, back on the Del Dios, with a coffee stop in Escondido.
