The blossom ride is great, have done the 100k the last 2 years as my boss helps obtain all the food and drink for the support stations. (He's a Lions clubber). The 100k starts at the Kings River in Reedley on the valley floor and then ventures up into the foothills for awhile, crosses the highway near Squaw Valley, descends back down into Wonder Valley, then rejoins the river and follows it through Centerville back to the start point in Reedley's Cricket Hollow park. A pretty good lunch of catered Mexican food is served at the end.
The California Central Valley is beautiful in early March, with blossoms on all the fruit trees usually, and even more beautiful I think are the green rolling foothills.
