Congratulations to Rick G. for sharing his San Diego ride route with Mira Mesa cycling club and a couple members of the San Diego Bike Club, complete with a GPS track on garminconnect. There were so many great posts that this was a tough one for the judges. We’ve included the list of weekend ride routes from your fellow riders. Be sure to check them out for some great route ideas! Rick won a 2012 San Diego Century bike jersey in the 3/5 edition of, “Where did you ride this weekend?”
Here is Rick’s post from Facebook:
3/5: I’ve driven up Mt. Soledad at least 100 times. I never imagined that I’d cycle up it. I started cycling (and running and swimming) last July and hit a milestone with my first climb up Mt. Soledad. A rider in our group mentioned the Triple Team registration and that is how I happened on The San Diego Century. I hope to get my endurance up so that I can complete the San Diego Century! Here’s my ride that started at the Mira Mesa Mall with the Mira Mesa Cycling Club and a couple members of the San Diego Bike Club. http://connect.garmin.com/activity/154956072-Rick G.
