It was a bit cool and overcast at Valle Verde Park at our roll-out time, but as usual things changed as we climbed into Valley Center. It was all blue sky once we made our way up there. The descent into Valley Center and down Lilac Road went quickly and the cars weren't too bad. The Old Castle Road climb and descent were super. Old 395 and Jesmond Dene were also on the agenda today and those roads brought us back to the Heart of Escondido, aka Petersons Donuts.
A topic of discussion lately has been the idea of a VVV club jersey... I'm for it, but we need to generate a design. I'm for keeping it simple, although I haven't any preset ideas about it. Except that I think we need to have some green in the scheme, for the Verde in VVV. Mike C suggested an oak tree logo, like that used by the city of Poway which sounded nice to me. Any artists out there?
BTW: The starting eleven riders today were joined en-route by an additional three to bring us up to another all-time high of fourteen riders.
Next week we again go with Group Choice... ACHD Ride Date: Tuesday April 2, 2013 Time: 9:00am Anything Can Happen Day. Group choice for route... Usually easy?? Finally, the Borrego Five-O ride is still planned for Saturday, April 13th. We should be able to get some carpooling going to save gas. In the past we have allowed about two hours driving time from Poway to Borrego Springs. So, if we leave around 6:00AM there is plenty of time to get to Borrego, setup, and be ready for an 8:30AM clip-in. The ride takes about 5 hours and will be followed by lunch in Borrego Springs before heading back.
