Our good weather streak continued today and we managed to gather eleven riders for the Java Journey trip. As always on this route, the big challenge is the over two miles of climbing to get up to Valley Center, but then we're rewarded by the cool delights of the Java Journey stop. Fortunately it's only quick zip downhill and just past Lilac Road after cresting the summit to reach the JJ truck.
There were a couple of flats on this ride, but we still were back at VV Park by 12:30. There must be some quick-change talent in the group!
We still have one day of voting left in the August Start Time Poll, but 8:30AM has a strong lead. I'm going to post 8:30 for next week but will change it if there is a last-minute bloc of votes to swing the results.
Next week, Group Choice... ACHD Ride Date: Tuesday August 6, 2013 Time: 8:30am Anything Can Happen Day. Group choice for route... Usually easy??
