palomar ride november 24 or 25th

So I have never rode with any one on here for one of their group rides but I really just like to leave my house to go ride on the road than drive somewhere to ride. So I want to do the Palomar ride that was featured in bicycling mag that floyd does. I want to do it on my birthday and was looking for something somewhat challanging. I usually do a long ride for my birthday. Well I decided palomar mt. this year and I figure I could use a group to help pull on the flats on the way to the mountain and on the way back. Just trying to get a feel for if anyone is up for it. I know it is the thanksgiving weekend. So basically it is start in temecula at the 79 and pechanga parkway to the 76 to palomar and back on the 76 to rice canyon. So who would be up for this?

I'm sure people will be up for riding up Palomar that weekend, but not necessarily along that route.

Supposedly, I'm going to be planning our Apple Pie ride for Nov 24, starting in Valley Center and up to Palomar. (And then circling around through Santa Ysabel, Ramona, and Escondido.) But I wouldn't be opposed to doing something else that day.

I'll join up for at least a partial ride. If you're starting in Temecula maybe meet up in Fallbrook or near the Chevron station at 76 & 15.

Count me in! It'll be the first group ride I've done, but I'm more intimidated by those hills than meeting new people; time to start training!

that would be a SCARY weekend to ride the small shoulders of 79 and 76. Desert time so ALOT of RV's towing their toys. If you guys are coming in the from the 7, I'll start at Harrah's. RV mirrors and tall riders don't mix. I've had my head buzzed way too many times to put myself in that position again.

Um...J...that would be your "special pie ride" darling, and not the annual one. NOT that there's anything wrong with that, I'm just making sure we are all on the same page, if you will.

Oh, you mean the 1.8 mile (vertical) ride on Thanksgiving Saturday? I'm happy to organize, but if lots of people want to do a different ride, I won't organize a competing ride. There's plenty of other opportunities for that ride.

It may be that there is no easy Pie Ride, because as I understand it the Pie ride involves climbing Palomar and Mesa Grande. The original route is a 100+ mile century that also includes the Lake Wohlford climb near mile 99. The modified Pie Ride we are doing on 9/30 is a 70 mile semi-loop that skips Lake Wohlford and Ramona. Doable? Most certainly. Easy? Not so much.

That is unless you just want jschen to shuttle you to the pie shop. That would be easy.

Oh for cry eye, people, I'm KIDDING. I will probably struggle on the regular Pie Ride and I was just making a point that there is no way in hell that I could keep up on the one the OP is suggesting (although, I'm thrilled he's planning it as it's a new guy! We welcome those ). However, I'm just wondering that if Thanksgiving weekend is now going to be this ride in lieu of the regular Pie Ride, is there going to be a regular Pie Ride?

Sheesh...I'm not looking for an "easy" ride!

At the moment, I still plan on running the Pie ride as long as there's sufficient interest to justify the effort. I haven't decided whether I'd rather ride it or drive SAG this year, though. Riding it is such hard work, and I've fought the ride to a 2 win, 2 loss tie.

1st ride: completed 100 miles, but didn't ride to the finish (a tough loss)
2nd ride: completed entire ride solo, despite falling over 1.5 miles from finish (a close win)
3rd ride: last year's Thanksgiving ride, great time (easy win)
4th ride: threw in the towel at about 8000 feet of climbing and about 65 miles (not even close)

My Pie Lite record is a bit better.

1st ride: 80 miles, 9000 feet of climbing
2nd ride: 85 miles, 11000 feet of climbing

I'm not really sure why it's called Pie Lite since in many respects, it's as hard as the Thanksgiving edition of the Pie ride (98 miles, 9500 feet of climbing), if not harder (when returning via Mesa Grande and East Grade).

Does anyone have any information on the route we're going to take? There seems to be a lot of Palomar ride routes. Like overall distance/guess of elevation?

i like the sound of pie lite. i also think we should do that instead of pie proper this year.

I have been scouring the Bicycling website to find the route profile (with no luck), but I might have to break down and search through my magazines...

estrogen is linked to 'pie' through women, and we need more women on this route!!! so come and join us!

Ultra-lite pie route but with regular apple pie and heavy-duty ice cream!
