Great riding weather today - what a contrast to last week's rain. Ridership consisted of: Jerry, Mary Ann, Mike, and me. The new Escondido Loop route seemed to be well-received, just enough climbing and speedy descents to keep it interesting. We also enjoyed the oaken canopy on Jesmond Dene, the horse ranches on Ash and Idaho, and the great views on Summit.
Jerry continues to climb like a kite - where did I put that wrench to cinch down his PowerTap? Maybe next week I can try to give you a little competition on the hills, Jerry.
The statistical profile of the ride:
Dist: 36.39mi Time: 2:37:28 Avg:13.90/mph Max: 34.50/mph
Elev gain: 1858' Max elev: 1171' Avg grade: 2% Max grade: 8%
No coffee stop again this week! Oh-oh, have to stop that trend!
