With the extended work hours (due to persistent human resource problem at work since November) and all the raining (my current living space isn't convenient for frequent bike-washing), I was very lucky to fit in a couple of proper bike rides in January. Gosh know I'm getting late preparing for the BWR again this year!
|Once you get to Elfin Forest Rd, several alternative no-traffic paved routes opens up on the way to Double Peak.|
|The view at the top of DP just doesn't get old.|
|San Elijo Hills, the neighborhood on the southern slope of Double Peak, is full of secret trails.|
|Looking down on Lake San Marcos Dam and the surrounding greening hills.|
|One of the nice things about riding with a helmet rear-view mirror is being able to spot a nice view happening behind me as I climb... so that I can stop and properly enjoy it.|
|New bike at Lake Henshaw|
|These cute little Oregon juncos are quite worth climbing hills to see.|
|Looking west from Palomar Mtn almost to the ocean behind the Cerro de las Posas in the distance.|
If only I could be out there every day...
