Justin and I managed to get in two great days of riding in amazing weather. So stoked. Saturday we set out from home and did a big road loop down to the coast and back with Luke.
I broke in the Tarmac right with plenty of mini-creek crossings and some mud!
Pace was mellow for the first half of the ride, but we somehow got caught up with a fast-paced paceline down on the bike path to Oceanside. Not so steady!

We stopped to fill up before heading back inland
One final stop before the last push home!
Spent the evening cleaning house and watching some Olympics coverage before prepping for our big day on Sunday and then bedtime!
I remembered as we were about to pack up and head out that it was Valentine's Day! We had celebrated early (Friday) with surf & turf for dinner.
Heading up Maple Springs to chase Steph (and Chris)
I love the sight of the snow-capped mountains in the distance!

Heading out to Joplin
Not today, friend...

Finally made it!

Steph and I at Old Camp
Roading it up to Modjeska Grade and down to Harding
I think if he'd had more energy he would've flipped me off

Justin had offered free burritos, but after the parking lot fail in Irvine it was probably best there were only 3 of us, and a TON of food! We ate.
And ate again...
