Title: Ride To Borrego Springs - Sun 1/14/18
Post by: Rogue on 01/11/18 12:27PM
Myself and a couple of members plan to ride to Borrego Springs this coming Sunday, 1/14/18.  We will meet up in South Orange County, CA.  Ride across Ortega Highway, then head south from there.  Probably will skip Palomar Mountain due to the recent wet storm we had and instead, head straight to Borrego Springs via Highway 76.

First meeting location here:  https://goo.gl/maps/EdY8yv4Xs7x  Starbucks at the corner of Antonio Parkway & Ortega Highway
KSU:  7:45 AM.
The earlier we get rolling, the sooner we get back home.

If I hadn't already committed to a dirt bike ride I would go.

I'll be there at 7:45 no problem. I don't get bypassing Palomar though S6 and S7 may get a rock or two but I've yet to see them real bad. I can see avoiding Mesa Grande as it can get real dirty as well as rocky from a good rain. Carlee's is good but Keslingís Kitchen makes what looks like a good wood fired pizza. Just something to think about  :)

If the roads are good then of course we go up Palomar.  Seems like this was a warm storm and there may not be any snow that fell up there.

Iím open to wood fired pizza also.

The ride was just perfect.  Weather was great, not too cold yet it got warm enough for us to have to take our liners off.  The roads were in perfect shape.  Even the ones off the beaten path were nice and clean.  There were tons of other bikers out.  Most of the vehicles we encountered let us by and overall, everyone seemed to be enjoying their day and were very happy to be out and about.

Sport tires last between 3k-6k miles usually. The ride was under 300 miles if Iím not mistaken. Itís a day ride is all.
