San Diego Cycling Report

It’s been a bit since I’ve written a cycling report. I biked about 70 miles this week. I’ve been busy at work. Not least of which was announcing a new partnership with Fujitsu. Yesterday I had the pleasure of cycling 42 miles. This was roughly the reverse route of my route the previous Sunday, which I mapped at DailyMile.



The gist of the route is Mission Hills > Old Town > Mission Bay > Pacific Beach > Mount Soledad > La Jolla Cove > Torrey Pines > Del Mar and then home by way of Rose Canyon Bike Path. At Torrey Pines I got dumped on with rain, but seemingly managed to outrun the downpour coming down the hill out of La Jolla.

Above Torrey Pines Reserve I bumped into the Stu from He lubed my chain for free. He’ll come to you, anywhere, and maintain or repair your bike. Great guy.

I cycled Critical Mass in January, but I failed to write about it. It was a little smaller than usual, still over 500 cyclists, and the crowd was different from the norm. Seemingly angrier. Moreover, the police escort was oddly aggressive. Hopefully Critical Mass February will be better. If you’re interested in cycling Critical Mass rally at the big fountain in Balboa Park that’s between the natural history museum and the science center the last Friday of every month at 7 pm.

Now I’ll leave you with the best music video I’ve seen in years: Ok Go, “This Too Shall Pass”, which features the Notre Dame marching band.
