Where are you riding this weekend 02/02 & 03 ?

I'm staying indoors and completing the Tour of Sufferlandrias stages 8 and 9 on Saturday and Sunday. Taking a couple of days off afterwards and starting up my outdoor/indoor riding. New to indoor cycling, but the structured training has been great. Unless I'm climbing, I think I get more indoors than just farting around town, having to stop at stoplights etc.

Lytle Creek on Saturday I think (waiting for a TV to be delivered). GMR Village on Sunday! Need one more good ride in before the Palm Springs century.

We had scheduled to ride the Southern half of the Camino Real double course last weekend, but that got rained out so we re-scheduled it for this weekend. Start at the southern end of San Clemente and ride about 96 miles through Oceanside, Bonsall and Fallbrook.

Should be fun! Hope for better weather than we had last weekend (though I did get in the LA Wheelmen ride through the San Gabe foothills on Sunday - lots of rain)!

Weather should be lovely this weekend! Can't wait.

Saturday doing "open access" in Limestone Canyon - patrolling the main trail. If you are out there - say "hey!"

Sunday doing a "birthday" ride out at Diamond Valley Lake. Never been there before. Always looking for a new adventure!!!

Holy crap! Which day are you going? That sounds like an awesome ride!
I was just going to ride up to San Clemente again tomorrow (day off from work ) and doing a few easy rides along the coast with my beloved GF, but now I feel inspired to put the bikes in the truck.
Have a safe ride! Bound to be beautiful this weekend after all the rain we've had!

^uh yah...my plan to do this ride has been stalled again. this time by the gfriend just now telling me i must be present for a home inspection on saturday @ 12:45pm. grrr. starting to think this is an omen.

last week, had parked next to the julian 'jail' and just clipped in to start this same ride when i went to zip my fave full-length zippered jersey down a bit. zipper totally went to hell. unsalvageable. didn't want to chance not being able to properly regulate my temp vs air temp especially with the 15 degree diff from light rain/misty mtns to sunny desert. settled on an urban ride around metro sd after returning home for a new jersey. total letdown tho. leaving julian and heading thru cuyamaca sp, there were lots of sun 'windows' with
steam coming off the asphalt from the recent rain. love riding when it's like that.

now shooting for next week-likely a weekday.

That sounds like a fun ride but I'd do it the other way around... , although that would alter your lunch time of course. Wind on PCH would be the main reason.

So where is this magic cafe? Sounds good.

Wind on PCH? I always get that cursed head wind heading south on either SGRT or SART. SART is just closer to home (Beer). Java Spice on Fullerton Road...the Sayjor Lodeh reminds me of when I was a kleine jongen.

Thanks, I"ll have to try that out. I ride right by there pretty often.

The wind from the coyote creek bridge to seal beach can be vicious, I agree (especially after noon) but the wind on PCH is that same wind, only for longer. The wind on SART never seems to be quite as predictable but unless it's a Santa Ana it never seems to be TOO awful.

You should definitely schedule your route around beer though, that's a given.

Thinking about riding Saturday from Palo Alto to Pleasanton, by way of Calaveras Road. About 45 miles one way. I haven't been there in quite a while.

The weather's predicted to be in the 60s all weekend. Not bad for February.

I've been meaning to make another run to Julian and back (it's been 6 months since the last time I got out there). Possibly tomorrow, but I put in 90 miles in the last 3 days (including some hard work, e.g. a personal best up Valley Center Grade and southbound Twin Oaks Valley in 27:39) and I'm not sure if my legs will approve.

By my count, you're the third person from outside the region to chime in on SoCal "where are you riding" threads in the last two weeks. I guess there's really nothing happening elsewhere, the rest of the country is in deep freeze.

I talked the missus into meeting me in Pleasanton for an overnight stay, at this place:

I saw you heading in the San Onofre campground. I yelled your name but you were already passed.

That's a tough ride. We start at Dudleys, ride up to Julian, then finish up on Mesa Grande.

I ran into Ranchos on HVR. I can keep up on flats, but I don't stand much chance when going uphill. Managed full Old Julian Highway climb in 33:12 (substantial improvement over my previous best of 38:xx, even though there was noticeable headwind most of the way). Looks like the main pack did it in ~25:00.

GP, it wasn't too bad except for the last 2 miles climbing montezuma grade. interminable. The descent from the summit/ranchita to the 79 with that dependable tailwind made up for it tho.
really pretty rolling down that descent. so much greenery currently that it didn't feel like san diego county. a little off on my mileage estimate. it was 73 miles, not 55.
