Spontaneous Early Morning Ride! (intermediate) Palomar-Banner Grade-Montezuma

Just got the day free tomorrow and have friends coming in town for weekend (so I won't be able to ride saturday)

What better way to start off the month of May than a ride up the mountains! We are going to meet up super early because it's going to get hot quick, and we all know how fun it is to be roasting in leathers. Meet at 7:00 am, Kick stands up by 7:15am ish

Route: https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zChjCD5gr1io.kpOdTsPKwAZY

Take 15 north to Bear Valley, to valley center to the 76 to get to S Grade Rd. Will ride up S Grade Rd (S6) and then Ride down E Grade Road (S7). Will then head east on 76 and south on 79 to get to Julian via 78. Will take 78 East (Banner Grade) to the S3 (Yaqui Pass) to get to Borrego Springs to then go up Montezuma Valley Rd) From there I'll head home via 78 to the 67. All and all this should take 4-5 hours. Will stop for Gas and streching before Palomar, and in Julian. Ride will be spirited, but ride your own pace. Palomar is such a technical road that I don't really push it on that road, I just enjoy the view in the morning! I will stop at every major intersection to wait (assuming there's more than 3 people that come) Wear all your gear! Have an I.C.E. (in case of emergency) on you whether on a bracelet or in your phone.

    There is a well used to be a fruit stand on the right hand side across from the dog park just before you head up the grade into valley center and before the lake Wolford right turn can I meet you guys there?
