Great weather today - quite a contrast to the storm that rolled through last week on the originally scheduled ride up the Palomar: Mountain Madness route. Just a little bit of chill in the air at the summit, but it was sure toasty when we rolled back down to Harrah's. Kudos to all the folks who made their first ascent of Palomar via the South Grade Road, and thanks to Susan for supplying additional slideshow pix!
It seemed that everyone was satisfied with the provisions from the General Store at the top of the hill. Although, climbing thirteen miles makes anything seem better... not to mention the appetite-enhancing, crisp, clear, pine-scented air.
Two flats on the way up and two more on the way down... Goat Heads! Grrr!!!
This week's ridership: 18 Cyclists (5W / 13M)
With a Welcome to Johan who made his first VVV ride today.
Next week, an easy-peasy recovery from Palomar...
