Such a great day to be out on the bike. It's always fun to ride up to Valley Center and enjoy the oak-covered roads. And the descent on Lake Wohlford Road provides plenty of excitement as well. Fortunately, that downhill comes after the cafe stop... not sure I'd want to climb after having their fried egg sandwich (which is always delish!)
Not all fun for Robb today though...
He provided a bit of a scare when, unknown us, he tipped his bike as we left Lake Hodges and hit his helmet on the pavement. Fortunately, a couple if MTB riders were there to help him out. One of them, Kerri, went after us in her van, while her friend Heather, who happened to be a doctor, stayed with Robb. Many thanks to both of them, and also to Sean who cycled home to get a car and help Robb get his bicycle back home.
For those who wondered where Jerry was (again) this week, check out the pix on this ride...
I'm beginning to think we need to supply JG with more climbing options!
