Biking in Borrego

This was my 9th visit to Anza Borrego State Park and the weather couldn't have been any nicer - mid-80's all week, sunny, and hardly a wisp of any winds. On this trip, Mike Broderick, Herb Lee and I joined about 15 other Sac Wheelmen on their annual winter Zodiac trip to the desert. We enjoyed four great rides and completed two hikes over a 7 day period.
