Awesome Riders!

DEBI: We had a BEAUTIFUL rural ride through Fallbrook, Rainbow, Valley Center, Bonsall and Oceanside. 50 miles with 4000 feet of climbing. Beginning at Mance Buchanon Park in Oceanside, we climbed Sleeping Indian and rode back routes to enjoy the alpacas through Fallbrook including the infamous Live Oak Road where we spotted a coyote scouring the landscape. From there we rode through Rainbow and flew down Rice Canyon to land in cow country where be began our climb up Couser Canyon where we enjoyed climbing by the Couser Morgan Ranch. After you drop down into Lilac land you can stop for organically grown food at the Yellow Deli as they occupy Lilac Ranch in Valley Center. A little more climbing takes you down Circle R when you can enjoy fast s-curves to Old 395. Picking up the pace on the flat Camino Del Rey, we drafted as a team all the way from Old 395 to 76. Now the the construction is over, enjoy a great big bike lane back to the bike trail which takes you to Mance Buchanon Park.
Do this on a Saturday or Sunday morning and you will see more animals than cars and have a GREAT breakfast after. Don’t forget… while you out riding rural roads… take it single file… the residents whirl around those corners and don’t expect to see you there. Don’t be deceived by the quite ride… when they finally show up… the cars are usually flying~!

NICK: (Thanks to Nick for posting from Phoenix and gettin it done in spite of the weather)…
