What the Dickens... apparently the threat of rain today managed to cut into the ridership roster, so it was just Mary Ann and me who were left to uphold the VVV banner. The route was a simple one that took in Poway's Old Town area, as well as a spin out to the horse ranches and sheep pastures at the end of Garden Road. We kept it close to town in case the rain decided to arrive early, and, except for the hill on Espola coming back to VV Park, it was a nice flat route. A stop at Donutopia made it perhaps the perfect E-Z day ride.
I was motivated to keep the route simple and flat because I was on a vintage Benotto with gearing that didn't appeal to legs which had done a 200km ride the previous day. Riding the Benotto was in turn necessary due to a slight problem with my everyday bike's rear wheel hub... namely that after 18,000 miles of service it was time to go on strike!
Next week we visit the oaks of Jesmond Dene...

An easy route through Escondido and out to Jesmond Dene (...with a Peterson's stop on the way back?)
