    Riding thru the beautiful hills of rancho Santa fe,stopped to refresh and fuel up at Pasitano Cafe,finishing up by riding around lago linda lake and waving to all the other fellow bikers who know how to enjoy a beautiful day in san Diego!!

    After replacing the shifters and chain from last week’s fiasco, daughter and I took it ‘easier’ and went to the beach on the tandem. Poway to Encinitas via 56 and 101. Still a good amount of miles, but little climbing.

    From Sabre Springs, up the Purple Monster to Ramona, down Highland Valley Road to Escondido, down Del Dios Highway to RSF and Solana Beach, then over to Del Mar, and back on the 56 Bike Path.

    Gorgeous though a little bit of everything, awesome views off of Highland Valley back towards Ramona then a few hours later Torrey Pines! 🙂

    55 miles – Top Gun/Mission Valley/La Jolla Loop
    Thank you all who rode today… I consider it a privilege to have ridden with & met you all. My exhaustion says it all … Today’s ride was definitely worth every drop of sweat & cramped up muscle!!! Semper Fidelis Trek Crew!!!

    I rode over to the Red Cross and gave them a pint (usually I donate blood to the pavement but today was different). It’s only a 10-mile round trip and going home is mostly downhill, but by the time I got home I felt like I’d done a half-century. It’s amazing what I’ll do for free cookies. Rehydrating now, one beer at a time.

    I met up with new friends I met at a tri club social. We rode from Encinitas to the San Luis Rey Trail (38 miles total). It was a perfect day for coastal ride. The best part?…we’re all riding in the San Diego Century next month!! [Do I get bonus points for that?? ;-)]

    I’m jealous, Steve Gagliano! I really miss that area.
    On Saturday I rode down to Seal Beach, then along the beach path (great tail wind!) to Newport Beach, then took PCH to Newport Coast. The climb up Newport Coast Drive was a good workout, followed by some nice Class 1 bike paths I’ve never ridden before, along Shady Canyon and Quail Hill areas. Took the Greenbelt trail as far NW as I could, then took Dyer/Segerstrom (yuck!) west to the Santa Ana River trail, then ad-libbed my way along city streets back to Los Alamitos. 65 miles total, and I was wiped out! Couldn’t even eat — just took a shower and hit the hay.

    Up to Red Rock Canyon for a twenty mile loop to cap off a beautiful Easter Sunday. Perfect weather and lots of people on the trails. Heard a funny squeek from the front tire and thought it was my hub so after my ride I took it apart and repacked the bearings. Took it for a test ride and still squeeked. Turned out my spokes just need tightening!

    I had 2 great rides this weekend, on Sat i did 45 miles with 3500′ of climbing we hit hills with as much as a 20%grade.
    On sunday we decided to work for our Easter dinner by riding there from Yorba Linda to Mission Viejo 38 miles and another 2300 ft of climbing

  15. Kevin Nordine -

    Rode throughout San Diego this past weekend. Purple Monster on Saturday and then rode with 10 others again on Easter Sunday sporting Bunny Ears mounted on our helmets. Definetely brought Easter Cheer to San Diego.
