Thursday was a great day to ride. Marine layer in the morning guarantees a cool start, though as it burns off, the day can get quite warm inland.We started from the area of Rancho Penasquitos close to Black Mountain.  We rode north on Black Mountain Road to Carmel Valley Road, southwest to Camino Del Sur, north to San Dieguito Road. Along  San Dieguito Road we passed the Fairbanks Ranch Stables.
