    Southern California flavor
    « on: 2014-04-19 17:31:08 »
    I enjoy reading this board because of the Euro flavor. You guys talk about some places I dream about riding.

    I thought I'd share a ride through the Southern California desert yesterday originating from my home in Carlsbad, CA out to Borrego Springs, CA. From the beach to the mountains to the desert and back. 275 miles roundtrip with temps in the mid-80s.

    The elevation can change from 5000 ft above sea level to actually below sea level on the desert floor.

    A common desert plant is the ocotillo which is covered in pretty red flowers in the Spring. It's quite easy to ride at elevated speed out here as long as you watch out for Calfornia's finest and their laser guns.

      Great ride!  You gotta do it before it gets really hot out there.
