looks like the next 5 days or so along the 79 corridor are doable if you can be bothered to wake up early. temps and winds are both lowish before noontime
from descanso to palomar mtn. if you decide to ride on sat or sun and start from descanso/8 fwy, i would recommend heading north towards julian via the
s1/sunrise highway through the laguna mtns vs cuyamaca rancho state park. the cuyamaca stretch carries 4x the traffic. do the cuyamaca stretch on the 79
heading from north to south as it's nearly all downhill and a blast with good pavement. here is my fave 50 mile ride in sd county...prefer it counterclockwise
to knock out almost all the climbing in the first two hours (plus traffic considerations) and the remainder is mostly flat or downhill. three stop signs in 50 miles.
