For this month’s hill challenge, we will head east on some of our favorite classic inland roads, including Jesmond Dene, Circle R, and West Lilac (C group). The route is a little longer than normal, but will be stunning after all the rain. The return trip is a little creative (i.e., no Melrose involved).
C Route: 54.6 miles, 4100′
The D group can opt for the longer route above, or utilize this somewhat shorter version that skips Jesmond Dene and Circle R, but returns via Warmlands.
D route: 46.4 miles, 2800′
Both groups will have the option to stop at The Fire Garden:
San Diego artist Kathleen King in collaboration with metal artist Tony D’Aula will host a public preview of the 26’ x 10’ x 10’ metal sculpture “The Peloton Takes the Cucamonga Curve” on display outdoors at Tony D’Aula’s beautiful Fire Garden in Bonsall before the sculpture is transported to Rancho Cucamonga to be permanently installed on a public corner in the business district.
They will be hosting a rest stop for us … this should be a unique event! Stopping is optional, but should be a great time.
(Note: There will be no E group this week)
