Jarrett is home visiting from the Air Force for a week but I’m leaving on a business trip Monday so today was our only chance to squeeze in a ride together before he splits......my daughter Caitlynn joined us too....I promised Caitlynn we’d ride something close/easy/new(to her) and I wouldn’t make it too long of ride..
We loaded the bikes and drove over to Tamarisk Campground at 8am.....off to Grapvine/Jasper/Culp......breakfast at Jilberto’s in Borrego Springs....over to the copper creatures...then reverse track....nice/fun/scenic ~50 mile loop with breakfast break in the middle.....
ALWAYS fun to ride with the kiddos! Jarrett is off to Trashcanistan in January so not sure when we'll be able to do it again......
