You head to SoCal for some bike riding. I am visiting my daughter who lives in Vista. This morning I stopped by Nytro in Encinitas and rented a bike to ride for a couple of days. It is a nice shop and they did a good job of fitting the bike for me. It is a Cervelo Soloist, not as nice as the bike Hermes tested, but is still a nice riding bike. Went south from Encinitas and rode up Torrey Pines. I've always wanted to climb it and now I can say that I have. It wasn't too bad even though I haven't ridden outside in two months, just spinning at my club. Rode for an hour and a half along side the ocean, a lot different scenery than I used to riding in.
Plan to do a ride on Sunday with my daughter on our California tandem and then ride singles again with her boy friend on Monday. I'm hoping that the temps have warmed up by the time I get back to Minnesota next Saturday.
