synopsis of ride:dropped car off at the dealer in mission valley for some small stuff and headed north along the 15 fwy corridor up to escondido.
originally intended to hook up with the hwy 76 bike path and take the coast the whole way back but i "winged it' after leaving escondido. ultimately,
ended up on north twin oaks valley road (which was pretty and had a nice descent...unfortunately dead ending at a quarry/private road.
climbed out the hole i dug myself, took twin oaks valley road south past csu san marcos and thru the san elijo hills. eventually hooked up with
leucadia blvd and the 101 and turned left for 20+ coastal miles. thru mission bay and back to mission valley. gorgeous day. pit-stop at
the in-n-out in escondido near auto park way/15 fwy for lunch. female driver pulled a crazy u-turn a half-mile from my finishing destination and almost
took me out. she didn't see me and if i had been a car, she woulda gotten horribly t-boned. let's be careful out there. they exist.
