Adam wrote: I was lucky enough to have the time to ride the first stage of the Tour De California this past saturday. Beautiful day for a ride, cool and cloudy at first, but the sun started to come out just as I got up the hill to Ramona. Stopped in lovely Santa Isabel for a piece of pie (I have type 2 diabetes so can only have those types of dessert on long rides). After a delicious piece, I went up the Mesa Grande grade, nice climb up, but the downhill to lake henshaw is a spectacular tree covered serpentine descent wheee! The big challenge was next up palomars east grade, 11 miles of straight up hill, long and hard but rewarding because you have earn your downhills. 14 miles and 4800 of feet of descent on switchbacks, just glorious! But that all ends as you look up the ominous climb that is Cole grade. By then it had gotten abit warmer and the old legs were feeling the distance (about 80+ miles) I was slow but steady. Now all I had was a pleasant ride thru Valley Center back to Escondido and home.
