    Great route, Dave! Sure glad I didn't go with "Peter and Jason's group" this Sunday! Met some new bikers and Bruce, whom I met on my way home last Sunday, showed today. Our ride expertise are similar. Danelle is quite a rider, for a "tri". lol

      Well I guess the nickname has taken roots. The ride was great - especially the downhill part. And the Coffee Clutch afterwards tops off a great day with a sweet ending.

    Here is the route for Sunday. We have the option to go up Ridgecrest into La Sendas if you want to get a little climb out of it. We will feel things out on our first stop.
    Thanks!

    La Sendas is a beautiful neighborhood to view at a moderate pace puffing up the short hills and roaring back down.
