New Sacramento Bike Group: Rides of all Levels Welcome!

Cycle Folsom invites road bicyclists to train with us every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Riding again after a few months off? Need to build base? Want to push beyond 100 miles and 10,000 feet of climbing? Whatever your fitness level, Cycle Folsom has you covered. Cycle Folsom has no membership dues, mandatory meetings or minimum participation requirements. Simply show up and ride -- or hammer, if that's your thing. Check out our growing resource library of route descriptions, maps, and elevation profiles at http://www.cyclefolsom.com.

I personally lead the "C" group, which is the slower group, focused on building a good base for the upcoming Summer. All levels welcome!

Hope to see you there!

For the "C" ride - isn't the speed limit on the American River Bike Trail 15 mph?

Correct

Yes, and we do keep to the speed limit. The range we put out is so people can fit to their limits. We will be cruising approximately 14-15 mph from Folsom to Discovery Park and back.

Thanks for pointing that out.

CYCLE FOLSOM SATURDAY RIDE

The A Group has climbed something like 120,000 feet in the last 10 weeks; so we are going to have an easy Saturday.

For once, all three groups will be headed in the same direction! We will all be riding on the American River Trail for at least some portion of the day.

The A and B Groups will be doing the Sacramento Airport Ride (the B Group turning back at Power Line Road on the Garden Highway). The A Group will have an optional loop that extends the ride from 85 miles to ~115 miles (and adds ~3,000 ft of climbing) by adding the Alexandra Hill Climb loop at the end of the ride.

The C Group is doing ~50 miles on the River Trail with several options for turning back earlier for those with time constraints or who are adhering to training goals/regimens.

For Ride Details:
Online at: http://www.cyclefolsom.com/pdf/satur...turdayride.pdf
NOTE: Please note that there are 2 starting times and locations for this Saturday (Historic Folsom at 8:00am, and William Pond Park at 9:00am)

Saturday Rides

Hi There, I am sorry I just got your question. We have Saturday rides for the "C" group every Saturday at 8am, leaving old Folsom. A few of the B group riders live near William Pond, so ocassionally they will meet at William Pond, and then ride up to Old Folsom for the ride (most rides leave from Old Folsom).

You can contact me on cell with any questions. (916-730-2003).

Thank you!
