Palomar Pie-LESS Ride 8/30 or 9/5 or ?

Here's my 2nd attempt at organizing a ride:

The Date: Sept 6
The Time: 8am
The Place: Mayflower Dog Park in Escondido (http://www.ci.escondido.ca.us/glance...wer/index.html)
The Ride: Escondido (Dog Park) -> Lake Wolhford -> Palomar -> Cole Grade -> Dog Park

Similar to to the Tour of CA route, always wanted to do Cole Grade after seeing during the ToC so it must be included. I hate pie (but I like the crust) and I detest the 78 from Julian to Ramona so there it is.

Regroup at Lake Wolhford, Top of Palomar, Top of Cole Grade. Come on down and get away from the fire. If your gonna sweat, you might as well do it outside biking...

Whose in?

I'm doing Dudley's-Pmar this Saturday, but I'll try to make your ride too (even though I can't STAND the murderous stretch of Valley Center Rd between Wohlford & the 76.)
When North County needs an enema, that road is where the tube is inserted.

I'm in.

We don't need a SAG car; it's only about a 50 mile ride. Why don't we just give Phil money and have him ride with us?

I'm in. Gotta do it sooner or later. The 5th or 6th is best. The 30th might not be so good as there's a 70% chance I'll wake up that morning to nurse a fierce hangover while trying to remember the name of the girl(s) I woke up next to.

A few miles, off of Mission. What makes you think I want you people to know where I live?

Possibly.

Depends on if I get my homework done.

And yes, I realize that makes me sound like a 12-year-old.

BF ride!!?? Cool, I'll try to make it. What's "in the morning"? And where is the "dog park"? A street address will be greatly appreciated. I'm not that familiar with Escondido. Any post-ride beer & pizza? I've heard there are some nice micro breweries in Escondido.

The hotter, the better. Then I'll probably be able to keep with you for a while (if you are on your single-gear bike, that is)... I'm thinking of doing the Fiesta Island ITT on the 13-th, so that weekend won't work for me.

Jimmy, if you're coming south on 15, exit at Valley Parkway and follow it through town to the park. If you get to Lake Wohlford Rd, turn around and go back a couple of blocks.

I can do it on the 6th or 13th. I have to work on the 19th and 20th.

Is this a BF ride or SD County posse deal?

Either way...I'd like to do this ride.

This may be a good way to get away from the smoke for me.

Has the date & time been established yet? (Or was this part of the exclusive memorandum emailed on the QT?)

It looks like Escondido's going to be cooling down this week, so it shouldn't be murderously hot like it was this weekend. (I know, I know, we've gotten soft living here.)

I might be open to picking someone up at the O'side train station on the way to the dog park, if one of you LA/OC types would like to stay off the freeway. (It's only a Ford Ranger though, so I can only fit one.)

P.S. We're not smokey down here. The Marines regularly torch Pendleton's wilderness, so we don't have 60 years of growth fueling our puny fires down here; they're probably even contained by now.

Hey I'd like to do this ride. I did south grade a couple weeks ago and I'd like to try Cole Grade. Are you guys going to be setting a murderous pace? Also would like more details about the time etc
