Another unseasonably cool start to today's ride, but of course the sun was out before we had finished climbing up Highland Valley Road. A bit warm on the climb, but it was still pretty darn good riding out there... no complaints! We had the pleasure of a visiting cyclist today, Mike from Chicago, who's in SoCal for a week and traveling next to Rancho La Puerta in Tecate. We expect a report on how well they prepare the "Watermelon Gazpacho with Basil and Feta" there, Mike!
The Old Milk Run route gave us the usual enjoyment: hard climbs, fast descents, nice scenery, and even a bit of dirt road when we crossed Ysabel Creek. And yes, there was an EscoGelato stop today... I have to say that the Mayan Chocolate gelato was superb.
Next week's ride...

Scenic riding on Highland Valley Road, with plenty of hills.
Lot's of folks were meeting up with us en-route today, I think I got the count right...
