This ride is an annual tradition. "Team Red Dog" and various hangers' on like me, join the Delucchi tribe on a ~40 mile ride through south county, the highlight being a stop at Gizditch Ranch and we stuff our pie holes with plenty o' ollalieberry pie and ice cream. Far more than justified by the energy expenditure, most likely. Decadent, but we do burn a good bit on the Hazel Dell stretch which comes later, and then the climb back up to the Delucchi's through the Aptos Hills.
