Thanks to our early start time we managed to avoid most of the heat today, and it was easy going out of Rancho Bernardo as we started on the Del Dios Loop route. But... since today was an ACHD ride, we naturally decided to modify the course - this time cutting off a few miles for the pleasure of going up the Zumaque Climb into Rancho Santa Fe. I think everyone was happy to get that one done and enjoy the zip down the Del Dios highway. That left the big climb up to the dam between us and Escondido Joe's. Well, that and a spin along the Escondido river bike path, which featured a police car rolling along it. Anyway, no worries on Del Dios: it just added to our appreciation of the cafe's iced drinks and the air-conditioned comfort!
Next week we belatedly do a Columbus Day ride to... Little Italy Date: Tuesday October 9, 2012 Time: 8:00am Urban riding: A special (almost) Columbus Day visit to Cafe Zuchero!
