What a wonderful ride! After such a lot of hills, 87 miles and 3700 ft climb was just lovely!
We started off in Solana Beach and rode up the coast to Torrey Pines, you can see how foggy it was! Very muggy. I wondered whether I was happier with humid or hot, I didnt have to wonder for too long, we set off along miramar and up Pomerado Road through Poway and it got hotter and drier and that was pretty intense too!!
We had a nice stop at macdonalds, sampled their giant iced coffee, then made our way through escondido and around Bonsall, coming across the
Pardee Nursery. We stopped to take a photo to send to Wes, apparently he's not big into trees, so he'll probably be a bit bemused by the photo, oh well! It sounds like he's on the mend, and we're all thumbs up to that!!
We then made our way to Oceanside, got a killer paceline going on the bike path, then sped our way along to Swamis for a quick rest stop and then back to Solana Beach.
It seemed rude not to stop for pizza and beer at pizza port!
So thats it, we're all starting our journeys up north to the death ride, for a short ride on Friday, then the event is on Saturday. Wish us luck! Hopefully everyone will be able to get over their nerves, enjoy the scenery and have a really fun day!
