I know many people will be doing one of the toy rides that are being held this weekend but for those that would like to do something else we will be doing a ride on Saturday also
We will be meeting at LEAP COFFEE this week, which is located in inland Carlsbad near the intersection of El Camino Real and Faraday. Plan on coming early and/or staying after for a snack and coffee at Leap Coffee. The owners are very welcoming to cyclists, and their coffee is excellent.
