Just a brief report from Mary Ann for today's riding of the Del Mar Breeze route: "Another great day for a ride. We left VVP with a contingent of 4 riders, Mary Ann, Bob, Dave and "the new guy", Fred. Cloud cover kept us cool all the way to the coast. We didn't see the sun until we met the top of the climb on San Dieguito Rd. @ Camino del Sur on the way home. There were a few spots of construction, but no flats and no other unfortunate encounters."
Welcome aboard Fred, hope to see you on future rides. And succinct as that report was, I gather from the pictures that there must have also been a cafe stop at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in 4S Ranch. Yea!
I had to ride solo today, and much later in the day than the VVVeloists: my route included the climb up Old 395, from Welk Resort to Deer Springs Road, which I got to do without a single car buzzing past. CHP had blocked the road because Cal Fire was knocking down a small brush fire, but they allowed me to ride past their barricade. Who cares if a cyclist gets fried,eh? ...no really, it was totally safe: check the pic - just smoke and ash by the time I rolled by.
Next week, get ready for the 5th ride of July... Del Dios Loop Date: Tuesday July 31, 2012 Time: 8:30am Out to Fairbanks Ranch, back on the Del Dios, with a coffee stop in Escondido.
