My friend David and I went out on an epic ride yesterday with the intention of hitting at least two of the ‘famous’ San Diego roads I keep hearing about. Well, we ended up hitting more than just two.

Our ride was a great one indeed, over 200 miles (I lost track) and countless amazing views. Ramona -> Old Julian Hwy to Santa Ysabel -> Mesa Grande to Lake Henshaw -> 76 -> South Grade to Palomar -> lunch -> Palomar State Park -> East Grade -> 79 to Santa Ysabel -> 78 to Julian -> 79 to Sunrise up Mt. Laguna -> Hwy 8 all the way back to San Diego.
It’s easy to take things for granted in life, and Thanksgiving is the North American Holiday to give thanks and realize what you’ve got in life.
These last few months have been sort of a whirlwind for me, and while I’ve been busier than ever I’ve been able to finally do some of the things that really make me happy. Riding in another country (hopefully many others soon to come), road tripping through the West Coast up the 101, moving to SoCal and riding in the sunshine. In other words, today I’m really really thankful.
