    Sept 30th: Palomar Semi-Pie Ride?

    I noticed that the temps projected for Valley Center and Lake Henshaw are in the low 80's for this weekend. One might speculate that the temps on the 30th should be tolerable for more than just an early morning straight run up Palomar.

    This would be a repeat of the ride Jeff organized in June. Rincon to Mt Palomar to Santa Ysaebel for pie via Mesa Grande, with a return either via Mesa Grande or Hwy 79. I think the full Pie Ride should wait for even cooler temps.

    Wadja think?

    sounds like a lot of fun, I'll check my calendar to see if I am available...

    I wish I could, but that's the day after Lighthouse and I doubt I'll be up for it.

    Plan one for October, Dan!

    I'm interested, of course.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    I wasn't suggesting that anyone had to do it. Last time some people did in order to minimize climbing on the way back. Jeff, for example had muscled up Palomar on his SS, turning his legs to burnt toast in the process.

    yes its harder, but any ride leading up to a century is good training. I havn't done a century since January on the singlespeed.

    Right.

    Whenever you do buy a new car, look for one that can go south of Irvine without the wheels falling off.

    Look it, Dannypoo, I am MORE than willing to drive down there, if you'd plan a ride worth it and according to my schedule. I'm high maintenance and expect you to deliver.

    AFAIK, you haven't shown up for a ride starting south of Irvine since the Stagecoach Century. Of the rides I've arranged, you have gone on exactly one, the one starting in Huntington Beach. Not that I'm counting.

    Since I know that you are MORE than willing to drive down, the only logical conclusion is that you car is the problem. When you're driving west and you hit the coast, do you find it hard to turn left?

    Um...no need to call me a name. and as for turning LEFT, many of your rides haven't geled with my schedule. Remember? IHOP-Applebee's deal??

    Sounds like you need to loan her your new car. Don't forget to leave a gas card in the glovebox.

    Loan? Why not "buy?" But I like you're thinking, Frank, on the gas card.

    Hey Dan,
    I might give it a try. I'm thinking of doing the Grassy Hollow ride with the Rebels next Saturday (9/22) so if I feel spunky enough for another hilly ride I'll be there. Hope you are not planning a start time earlier than 7:00 AM. Is Rincon = Harrah's Casino?
    Old people are keen to give good advice because of their inability to give bad example.
