This was a pretty long ride of 65 miles. Don’t use the whole route– I messed up coming down to the 8 and ended up way too far east and had to poke along Friars where I made some mistakes. Convoy to Linda Vista is better. I could have sucked it up and just climbed out of the valley on Texas but I was borderline bonked and headed for Old Town and down Kettner.
The 56 bike path is a little bumpy but pretty nice. It starts at Carmel Valley Road and El Camino Real and goes east. I bailed at Black Mountain Road but it keeps going.
Climbing up the mesa at Torrey Pines I got “one little, two little, three little Indians” stuck in my head. Very annoying, but not as politically incorrect as you think. I was actually dreaming of Padma Lakshmi. Still potentially incorrect, but different.
