Despite a couple of late arrivals, the main body of the group got started on time today, and it was an impressive turnout, too. The seven riders leaving Valle Verde Park (Jeanette, Liz, Mary Ann, Pam, Bob, David, and Ed) were met on the route by Jerry and me, for a record-tying gruppo of nine.
The route featured Woods Valley & Lake Wohlford, which we did as a climb up Valley Center Road, then along Woods Valley and Lake Wohlford, with the twisty descent down from the lake to polish things off.
Oh, and of course there was the mandatory stop at the Lake Wohlford Cafe for revitalizing coffee and... Well, coffee and whatever - options ranged from super healthy Poached Egg on spinach, or oatmeal, to the always deelish Fried Egg sandwich with cheese and bacon, or the Texas Size Cinnamon Bun!
Next week we visit... Del Dios & Elfin Forest Date: Tuesday October 23, 2012 Time: 8:00am We'll ride the loop clockwise: Del Dios descent and Elfin Forest inbound to Escondido. (Yes, coffee stop in Escondido.)
Lastly, here's advance notice for an upcoming Extra Credit ride, likely date is Saturday, November 3rd. The route: Borrego Five-O. More details later!
