The route today was a bit free-form, it was advertised as the Rancho Santa Fe Ramble, but the so-called "ride leader" forgot that we were supposed to include Artesian/Zumaque. Not that a couple of folks didn't try to gently suggest to him that we should go that way. :-) What the heck, we still put in plenty of climbing, rolled on some pretty roads, and got involved with a coyote rescue. Well, at least Mike got involved. He put his animal handling skills into action and managed to put an injured coyote on a leash until County Animal Control arrived.
We took a break at Caffe Positano in Rancho Santa Fe, but rolled back down the hill to collect Mike from his coyote tending. So we paid our dues with extra climbing and were happy that Mike didn't have to pay with a bite on his leg!
