Quite a good turnout today: despite the threat of rain we had seven roleurs at VV Park - Les, Mary Ann, Bob, Mike, Robert, John, and me. It was an inaugural Valle Verde ride for Mike, Robert, and John. Welcome aboard guys!
For the second month in a row, the Anything Can Happen Day Ride didn't make it to Juice-A-Rama. I must have jinxed us last week when I wrote: "the Anything part will include a Juice-A-Rama stop (I know I said it last month and it didn't happen, but this time for sure, unless it rains again)...". So instead we got to do a nice 17% grade into Rancho Santa Fe and practiced staying upright on some very wet roads. Sorry that there was no coffee stop today. But I'm sure the post-ride warm shower was a winner.
Next week we get to see some of the Hidden Valley's more rural aspects...
