And today’s mystery spot. Lots of semi-suicidal bike packers here riding mountainous roads with zero shoulders and 2 million curves. Add to that zero sun and intermittent downpours and what a great ride they must be having. Daytime high 55* F. The cool thing was the two under the ocean tunnels. My bike mileage = 0

Cool morning ride. High of 77 F and almost not wind. Road 35 miles. GP5000 tires getting ready to need replacement. Thinking of going tubeless or convert to latex tubes.

There's a taco truck that popped up in an area I ride thru that had some delic crispy & soft corn tacos. I opt'd to try the crispy (I do my best to diciplne oneself!) as I commented the tuffy decision. The very kind lady handed me both & would only accept cash for the one. At a later ride date, I noticed the truck again. Went over to just have one crispy, & she did it again. I tried, once again, paying for both with extra on top... no go. I said it was a tip, still declined. If I encounter a third sight seeing, I'm determined to compensate for those tasty tacos!
The salsa was on it's A game too for a blast of mouth flavors. Could use a bit more spiciness, but I am outlier when it comes to such heat, where most might think I have an iron stomach. lol

i think you ride enuff to forego the "discipline." opt in.

if i ever move from the san diego county area, the handful of things i will miss are as follows (and in order of importance):

the mexican food scene.

riding the 50 miles north/south backcountry package of: julian/palomar/mesa grande/anza-borrego state park/cuyamaca state park/laguna mountains areas.

the craft beer scene.

balboa park.

riding the coast from cabrillo national monument up to oceanside (mostly) along the pacific coast highway.

torrey pines state park/state beach.

Do you anticipate a lifestyle change involving a move in your future?

It has taken a lifetime to build up the discipline against the drug of food.

Norway or one of those out of the way Scandinavian places? I cross-country skied in Norway. Outstanding but not that far north. And the food, oh, the endless smoked, pickled and wonderous fishes!!!! Breakfast, lunch and diner.

In my haste to praise Norwegian fishy things....

Yesterday my 15.6 mile, 700 foot loop where I did see Leif again, standing tall and proud to be a Norwegian in Seattle!
