Palm Desert - Because we'll ride anywhere for a good cheesesteak sandwich!

Let's experience more fun again riding to Palm Desert, just hope it doesn't get too cold ...but we're bikers, cold, what's cold?

Of course if there's rain or snow in the forecast, this ride will be rescheduled.

With that being said, this posting depends on the weather and is subject to cancellation.

Please have tanks full, KSU at 9:30 am.

We'll get lunch at Schmidy's Tavern again, their cheesesteak sandwiches and other items are a hit.

The route will go through Ramona with a short stop at Dudley's in Santa Ysabel, continue on to Warner Springs, Sage & Wilson (technical slow turns). After that the next gas stop is Mobil in Anza. Dairy Queen is next door for those who want to get ice cream or coffee.

We'll stop at the overlook for a group photo before lunch at Schmidy's Tavern.

    Alex thanks for putting together another great ride! The Track really helped improve my riding abilitys!

    November 17, 2012

    • Alex

      Your welcome Scott but I didn't put this ride together. Jodi and Richard did the honors. I just happened to lead it. Glad to always be of help!

    Any estimates about what time we will be back in San Diego by?

    November 16, 2012

    • Jodi

      Hi Scott, I'm not sure. This is just a guess, maybe around 4 pm?

      November 16, 2012

    • Alex

      Scott, it's going to depend on how long our breaks and lunch are. I estimate closer to 5.

  • Jodi

    Here's the projected weather for Sat. I hope the rain stays away. It looks like it will warm up nicely. Bring layers is my best advice. Lakeside, our departing location as of today 70 degrees, 20% chance of rain: http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=zmw:92040.1.99999

    Palm Desert, our destination as of today 77 degrees, cloudy:

      November 13, 2012

    • Jed S.

      Thanks Vicky, But I am only interested in a Road Glide, it is the Faring thing...Thanks again!

    Hi Jodi and Richard, I'd be happy to sweep or lead or whatever. Let me know.

    November 11, 2012

    • Alex

      Would be happy to. Can I count on you to sweep since you know the route?

      November 11, 2012

    • Jodi

      Richard said yes to sweep.

      November 12, 2012

  • Jodi

    Hi Justin, you mean you'd miss the ride for the birth of your baby??? Just kidding...Congratulations in advance!

    • Jodi

      You're welcome and 'like' back at ya!

      November 12, 2012

  • Alex

    btw Jodi, that is a great shot! Is that at the bottom of the "track" right before we get into Palm Desert?

    November 12, 2012

    • Jodi

      Hi Alex, I'm not sure? You're probably right about the location. All I know is it was on the way to Palm Desert.

      November 12, 2012

  • Jodi

    Ed, I'm sorry you have to miss this ride. I change the date to next Sat. because the weather was just too unpredictable. There was reports of possible rain, snow in some higher areas and wind. Wynola where Dudley's is was showing a 45 degree daytime temp.

    November 10, 2012

  • Jodi

    Hi everyone, I just changed the date of this ride to Nov. 17. Weather isn't looking too good for this Saturday. As of today, the weather for the following Saturday will be in the 70's and low 80's. Thanks for understanding.

    November 8, 2012

  • Jodi changed the date and time from Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 9:00 AM to Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 9:00 AM

  • Jodi

    Alex and all others interestered in this ride, don't give up yet. If unsafe conditions by Saturday the ride will be rescheduled for better weather. Think positive and hopefully the ride will happen as planned.

    November 5, 2012

  • Alex

    I was planning on doing this ride but weather is not looking good. Up to 40% chance of rain, cold and possible snow in Anza. Reminds me of our last ride to Palm Desert last February.

    November 5, 2012

  • Steven B.

    For those of you that have not been on this run before, it really is a 'must-do' ride. Just check the route on google maps and you'll see.
