    Daley ranch

    Did a 14-miler out there today.

    No other riders out there during my ride (only a few hikers). Wonder why?

    Maybe it was the oppressive 90 degree weather, very low humidity, and red-flag warnings...or was it the huge brush fire/smoke plume next door at Camp Pendleton.....hmmmmm....

    or maybe, just maybe...it was those combined with my 1100-1400 ride time!? We'll never know...

    ***That place needs some rain on the trails...they are sandy/loose and dusty!

    Love that place. Wish I wasn't that far from it. I ride it at 7 am when I go there. I've only been able to clear that ONE climb once. You know the one.

    Hidden Spring (aka Hell Hill, in my book)...and it only ends at the second smaller hill just before the Engelmann Oaks fire road. Everything in between is just a false flat!

    I have cleaned it only a handful of times...back when I was younger and it was ruttier! Now, it's a hwy and I am older...so it's still a challenge!

    Some good climbs there. Last time I went was mid spring and it was pretty warm still. It's pretty exposed so that might be why there wasn't much traffic.
