OK, the ride report's arrival was a bit late this week - just too much to do. But it's here now so enjoy! The ridership consisted of Mary Ann, Rick, and me and we were pleased with the perfect weather. Rick was on his new Pinarello and it is a nice looking machine. Love that Italian Styling.
The route was changed a bit to allow us to get to San Elijo Hills from the north... yeah, Up and Over Twin Oaks Valley Road. I checked and that hill hasn't gotten any lower since the last time we did it! The pay-off for the climb was the screaming downhill into SEH... unfortunately we got caught at on traffic light halfway down and had to start our speedy descent a second time and didn't quite get up to 40mph... fortunately that wasn't enough over the speed limit for the cop at the bottom of the hill with the radar gun on us to care!
Elfin Forest & Harmony Grove were, as usual, a highlight of ride. But there is a bit of roadwork going on now so we had to wait for a short traffic break. Still pretty good riding though.
The coffee stop in Escondido was at Peterson's and we all benefited from a sugar injection.
Next week, it's once again time for the...ACHD Ride Date: Tuesday May 1, 2012 Time: 9:00am Anything Can Happen Day. Group choice for route... Usually easy??
