    The country roads were fun, the flowers were beautiful, the ocean breeze was cool, and the food was excellent. Lots of laughs as always.

    David : I loved the routes and can imagine there must be many more interesting roads west of Temecula and Wildomar. Nice job.

    Don't know what happened to the jazz , the ride was great as well as the company. The food was awsome and the presentation was off the chart. Good time had by all.

    Check out the new route!!! The new route takes us into the back country roads and totally away from Temecula! It looks great. I think every will enjoy it. Thanks to Nina for the suggestion :)

    I'm thinking that I will leave from The OC and meet you there. If there are others coming from the area we can ride together. I will ride through the base and avoid the freeway.

    April 19, 2013

  • Tito

    Hey others coming from The OC, per my Yes response, or if other OCers are into a BIG day, we could ride to Wildomar and then back to The OC together through the base.

      People say you need a reflective vest but I've asked and the answer has been no. I've never worn one. But you do need a valid ID which of course you would have, driver's license. That's it.

      April 12, 2013

    • Cat M

      Not sure about that base, but 2 others never made me wear one. :)

    April 17, 2013

    • Nina T

Thanks!
