Polomar Mountain & East Grade Loop Saturday, August 26

I am thinking of riding this tomorrow? Anyone interested? I might turn around at the vista point, (~mile 25-27 see gmap), and head back up East grade road. It just depends on how I'm feeling and the weather. I'm not a fast climber, I'm just steady. Last time I did this it took about 2 hours to get to the top, (mile 16).

Here is the route: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=327389

Sounds like fun. I wish I didn't work Saturdays.

Looks like Extort and I will be doing this ride. Leaving the taco shop, (see the socalvelo link) around 7:30.

Send me an email if you're interested, it goes directly to my cell phone. I probably won't be back on tonight.

I'll be awake for a bit tonight... gotta clean my bike and create some Cosina Veloce materials for the MS150 Ride... and prepare for this ride (if we are quick enough and start between 7:30 to 8, we might get in SG, then EG followed by a sweet decent down EG and onto the highway for the 10 mile sprint to the car...)


totally off topic:
My team just became the 4th highest fundraising team (after being dropped from 1st place to 8th) and hopefully 1st in our division (11-24 riders)!!! I also became 4th overall in the individual standings!

This means that I am going to change my signature to point at other people that need donations (Voltman is first on my list).... so support a fellow BF'er in his quest to end MS!!!!!

Mike and I had a great time going up Palomar, but we only went up South Grade and down East Grade then back to the start using Highway 76. I cranked up P.S.G. using a 39-19 so that I could pace Mike...
