BikeSD invited me out on their Beachside Bikeride this past weekend and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning.
I’d say about 100 cyclists met up at Casa De Reyes in Old Town to casually ride to La Jolla then back to Casa De Reyes for some food and drinks. Unfortunately, I had to jet early so I didn’t get to enjoy the tasty Mexican food / day drinks but I did enjoy the conversational paced ride to the water.
Below are some of my favorite photos from the ride :
Thanks everyone who came out on the ride and SUPER thanks to BikeSD for letting me tag along!
