I'd Rather Be...

If you guessed that curvy road in the background is Palomar Mountain Road (arguably the best twisty road in SoCal), you're right. This road made it obvious that the limits of my bike far exceed my limits as a rider.

Palomar Mountain Road is a great road to see other riders on bikes you can't afford riding like they can afford to dump their bike. On the way back down, I took it very easy, generally staying far to the right and letting the California riders pass me. If I could hit that road every weekend, I could probably ride like that too...

I was amused to see a photographer perched on one side of the road in a particularly hairy curve, snapping away as each bike went by.

I just road Palomar last Sunday. Saw the same photographer that you did. Hope you stopped in at The Hideout down below off of Hwy 76.

That brings back some memories. Did you ride Ortega Canyon while you were there? That was one of my favorites. We had a few others, but I can't remember the names anymore.

Ride well,
