San Diego Metric-Del Dios Ride

Left Encinitas at the crack of dawn to bike to the start at Mira Costa College.

The Elfin Forest-Very hard to photograph them elves, especially during the day, but you can see they are working on a project here to divert the river around their den.
The climb out of the forest. There weren't too many difficult climbs on this ride. There was the "Three Witches" on San Dieguito Road, which was 725 feet over 9.2 miles to an elevation of 766 feet. Total climbing for this ride was 3,730 feet.View of Lake Hodges from the Del Dios Highway.

Fairbanks Ranch, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, Solana Beach, La Jolla-$$$$$
The finish at Moonlight beach where there was a fitness expo. After spinning for 4 hours:22 minutes I wasn't about to join this group.
Your guess is as good as mine. Probably one of the elves from the Elfin Forest found some employment here.
