Today's ride saw the trio of Beth, Bob, and me rolling out of VV Park just at the stroke of eight. Hopefully no one missed the notices about this week's special start time and showed up at 8:30 wondering where everyone was! After we crossed over Lake Hodges, we were joined at the Sunset Drive parking area by Mike, who was not going to be denied rolling over some new roads.
The climb up to Valley Center was a tester, as always, but we all made it up without coughing up a lung. The next section along Lilac Road had some fast descents and even faster trucks whizzing by! It got much quieter when the traffic to Old Castle Road split off, and better still when we entered West Lilac Road. There are a few pix of that section below. The descent of Circle R Road was over way too fast, but enjoyable all the same. More hills along Old 395 and a good descent through Jesmond Dene just about wrapped it up. The wheels were spinning today - we were back by 11:30 - so no time for a cafe stop.
Next week we're back to an 8:30am start...
