Well, we finished 2013 the way we started it, with a riding of the Fallbrook Metric Century. This time we rolled out of VV Park with 20 riders, compared to 8 last January 1, but not everyone was in for the full distance. Of the total crew, about half did half the distance, turning back at Mountain Meadows, while the rest of us pushed on to Fallbrook. Unfortunately our long-distance group broke up a bit when Mike and Hubert were delayed by a flat repair.
The remainder of the long-riders made a stop at Pala Mesa Market and were treated to samples of the local BBQ. It was pretty good: the Birria-Or-Bust Ride is definitely changing to the BBQ-Or-Bust Ride in 2014. Sean also led us into Fallbrook on Tecalote Drive and Ranger Road; they run beside Old 395 but are much better to ride on - hardly any cars and nicer views.
This week's ridership: 20 Cyclists (7W / 13M)
Next week we start 2014 with the...
Wildcard Ride (...or the ride formerly known as ACHD.)
Date: Tuesday January 7, 2014
Group choice for route... Usually easy??
Happy New Year Everyone,
