A sunny day in San Diego 

I took a few hours off and went on a nice bike ride on a beautiful San Diego day, from Encinitas down the coast to the top of Torrey Pines, and back again. I borrowed a bike but wore the colors along the 101...

Biking north of San Diego

Parasurfing, or whatever it is called, along the beach at Cardiff.

I responded to the challenge and took the long hill in the Torrey Pines preserve, all the way to the top. On a borrowed bike. In sneakers with no clips. A month after I turned 50. I was quite self-satisfied at the top.

At the top of Torrey Pines!

Bird of Paradise! Love these flowers...

Boid o paradise

Hmmmm..... I bet you are scouting the Oceanside 70.3. Are you signed up? Next year? Definitely on my list someday.

You're only 50? ;-)

Rocking the steel frame Bianchi. Looks like a solid 25-30 pounds of bicycle, and much too short for you. Did you angle the stem yourself? LOL.

Where did you get the Hawkeye jersey?

I notice your use of "the" in front of "101". Isn't it funny that Californians affix that antecedant to their numbered highways? Do you say "the 295" when you're in New Jersey?

Anon Attorney, borrowed the Bianchi from my friend, who is only about 5'7". The Hawkeye jersey? Bought it on the internets!
