A change to the ridership roster today as Beth and Bob returned from the White Mountains of New Hampshire to resume living
the SoCal dream; rounding out the crew were: Rick, Jerry, and me.
Lots of overcast sky to keep things cool all the way out to the coast today, and the overall downhill nature of the terrain meant a fairly quick arrival at Torrey Pines/Del Mar. We skipped the coffee stop today in deference to our hammerhead contingent!
There was some nice sunshine and a bit of tailwind on the return trip which helped keep the overall speed up. When I got home and checked my average, it was 15.5/mph... and that's for someone who was at or near the back on the hills today. Speaking of those hills: kudos to Jerry... he gave us lessons in how to fly up them.
Next week's ride is E-Z...
