    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~!

    Sometimes you just can’t beat the coast! I rode from Encinitas to Del Mar and then back to Carlsbad. It was a beautiful Saturday post-rain. (December 15, 2012)

    I ride my bike almost everyday because the stores are just a mile or so from my house I think its my way of supporting less oil needed from other countries. I ride longer on somedays from Laguna Niguel to Dana Point Harbor it just makes me smile. Riding helps me feel better I am getting closer to 50 years old and I feel as if I really must exercise to stop someof the pain in my joints just from aging. I really love to ride my bike I feel blessed I am able.

    Went on a great ride one morning after a rain through Redlands and Loma Linda. Clear, crisp blue sky with my favorite riding buddy Amy.

    Did my first “Tour of the Neighborhoods” ride with my club on Sunday. I was totally convinced the group would be waiting for me all day with all of the climbs – but I kept up! And had an amazing time! 🙂

    In the Thumb of Michigan.

    Land of the Forgotten
    Between Caro and Bad Axe.
    60 miles RT on muddy dirt roads made wet from snow.
    33 degrees and windy.
    Wearing three layers of clothes.
    And for the entire three hour ride, I thought, “what I wouldn’t give to be riding and surfing in SoCal right now.”

  17. Paul Kamerik -

    On Saturday I rode with a group, Temecula Velo, from Temecula to Oceanside, such a pretty ride, so fun downhill on the way there, and very challenging uphill on the way home. One of Santa’s elves brought us hot chocolate along the way, it was a wonderful day!!

  20. Amy Brown -

    Rode with Ride Yourself Fit – a Redlands Bike club. 27 mile tour of all the local City Parks.

    I am a roadie turned recent mountain bike rider and thought I would push myself a bit by riding in Sedona, AZ. The trails are gorgeous. Red dirt. Mesas. Majestic buttes. Trails that dip and rise with the elevation. Needless to say, some areas of riding were too technical and I would find myself hopping off my bike to walk. I approached a descending switchback and made the rookie mistake of looking down rather than in front of me and face planted on a rock. Two days before Christmas and I look like I just stepped out of the ring! A quick check to see if my teeth were still intact, if my nose was broken, and if my lip was badly split, and I shakily hopped back on my bike. There are trails to ride after all.

    We rode Sunday morning 8 am from Temecula up through Murrieta, Menifee to Canyon Lake back through Lake Elsinore and Old Town Murrieta. It sure was chilly and I was so glad I was wearing so many layers. All in all a very cold, but very FUN 55-mile ride, making back home just before it started raining! Perfect timing!!! 🙂

    I completed the Rapha Challenge on Strava. 500k in 7 days. Visited 3 major rivers in Central Az and a few other sites. Photos here:

    One of the longer rides with some actual climbing:
