Subject: Tour De Poway Pre-Ride
We had a small group out for the ride on Saturday. There were a total of nine riders that met up at the 7-11 store on Poway Road. The group consisted of Guido, Len (TE), Rick W, Larry, Bob P, Tony, Ernst, Rob and Brian’s wife, Monica. Brian is the Scottish rider who was out with us for Couser and Rice Canyon last week. She is a super strong rider, just like Brian.
The route took us up Poway Grade and through Ramona to the descent down 78, over past Lake Hodges and down Del Dios with a loop back toward the bike path. Guido explained the route and led the group for the ride.
I only made it to Archie Moore where Bob P and I cut down HVR and then around through 4S and home. I had a XC meet to go to at Morley Field and Bob was heading back to Italy again so we both had to cut our ride short.
We got home with about 43 miles of riding. I saw a few Strava posts showing a 68 mile or more loop for the rest of the riders. They are all ready for Tour de Poway.
The ride is only two weeks away. Hope to see a large Descender turnout for the Nick Venuto Century on Sunday, 6 October.
See you there,
