The good folks at Spy Optics hosted a very fun to watch, painful to ride, 200 kilometer road race with 9000 feet of elevation gain and a lot of Belgian waffles. Starting in Carlsbad, Ca and then touring though Oceanside, Fallbrook, Rainbow and Escondido, the race took us through some of San Diego’s amazing hidden gems at an amazing clip, I might add. Those guys haul some serious booty on those bikes. It was a struggle to keep up with them in the car. I have to say, the tiny, oak canopied roads that wind through the avocado groves of Rainbow and Valley Center are well worth a drive when you have a sunny Saturday to spare. You can see some of the photos and video on Spy’s BWR Facebook Page We were lucky enough to be there for all the events with my good friend Adam Klarer from Visual Artists. It brought back good memories from when we filmed the Tour of California Race.
