Seven riders today - a nice turnout for our trip to the coast! The group was a mix of regulars, Mary Ann, Jerry, and me, bolstered by the return of John, Ed, Tom (who seemed determined to charge every hill), and new rider Pam.
The early going was under a marine layer: June Gloom in August! No complaints though - the overcast skies kept us cool going over the hills out of Rancho Bernardo. The ride along the 56 bike path went by quickly and we made an early stop at Starbucks in Del Mar. Nice enough, but next time on this route we have to get back to little Cafe Positano.
Mary Ann distributed USA Pro Challenge bags after the ride. The bags themselves are nice and contain logo T-shirts, a decal, and a keychain-church key-hex wrench. She still has a few left if you want to contact her to get one.
Next week's ride...
Highland Valley Loop Date: Tuesday August 28, 2012 Time: 8:00am Scenic riding on Highland Valley Road, with plenty of hills.
