Seems that we lucked out today - all that weekend heat was fully gone and riding conditions were Excellent. Yes, we worked hard getting up and over all the usual suspects on this loop: Tierra Bonita, Scripps Poway Parkway, Mount Woodson, and the Highland Valley rollers. But then we did get to fly down the otherside of those hills. Perhaps next time we can modify the route a bit to try out some new roads - Eduardo brought up the Donart option (off of Tierra Bonita) and Sean pointed out a newly paved way along HVR. Probably that means more climbing! :-)
No Starbucks stop today - but hey, there also were no mechanicals or flats!
