Sycamore Canyon - Martha's Grove ride

Seasons and weather in Southern California are a bit tricky, mostly because you expect January to be cold and June to be warm. Here in San Diego, it seems like parts of January and February are warmer than May and June, then suddenly the clouds go away in July and there's no relief from the heat till November.

So while my East Coast friends are busy shoveling out from under yet another snowfall and sticking pins in a little Laura-with-matching-bike doll, we in San Diego are taking long rides in the middle of the day, knowing that once summer is here in earnest we'll have to stick to the coast, go early, ride at night, or run away to the mountains.

Here's the latest ride I did with Billy and Miles out at Sycamore Canyon and Martha's Grove. All told the ride is a little over 17 miles with a fair bit of climbing. I've condensed the ride into about three and a half minutes of the more exciting parts. It's a good ride for conditioning with a couple of technical spots at the top of Martha's Grove.

Enjoy the ride! (Click for video)
