Clint’s Monthly Ride: Lake Cuyamca

The ride checks out the new freeway and takes a nice drive eastward.

I enjoy meeting in Santee at the for the Monthly Ride because I get several comments from folks that don’t live here. They always say things like, “This wasn’t as far out as I thought,” or, “Dude, .” My response is always the same, “Of course, that’s why I love it!”

It’s also nice that it’s so easy to find just a couple of miles off of , which we took for the first time since it and it shaved off about 10 minutes of city driving for us. We don’t enjoy the stop-and-go with all the lights in town and with more than 20 bikes it gets difficult to stick together, so it was really nice to test out the new freeway.

We took the 8 East and then wound our way through the mountains until we pulled over at Lake Cuyamaca, to stretch our legs. After we snapped some pictures we rode about six miles to the small town of Julian where we again stopped because one of our pals needed gas. Helpful hint of the month: Gas up prior to the ride.

As we started out of town I started to get that hunger that just won’t go away. Riding seems to go very well with eating, so we made it into Poway where we stopped to enjoy some great food at Jimmy’s Brick Pit BBQ. 

After stuffing our faces with everything but the tables and chairs, we decided it was time to call it a day. We shook hands, hopped on our bikes and went our separate ways.

Whether you ride a or a , you’re always welcome to come along for the Monthly Ride. We meet the first Saturday of each month and you can check out The B.C. And Clint Page on 101kgb.com for the details…

No matter what you ride… Just ride!
