OK Sqooterheads, this ride is all about ... Missions! Misison Valley, Mission Center Road, Mission Village Drive, San Diego Mission Road ... and the oldest Mission of them all (in San Diego) -- the 18th century Mission San Diego de Alcalá itself! We'll take them all in, followed by a stop at the newest dessert bar in North Park, Swoon. Now isn't that a ride to just swoon over?
