    Eastern Sierra

    First weekend in June. Anyone up for this? It's a gorgeous double century. Only 200 miles and 10,000 feet climbing
    I'm in it to finish it.

    You left out the part about the miles of expansion joints after the climb to Sage Hen.

    Ah, if I remember about 10-15 miles of running over railroad ties. It's a great ride some very beautiful country!
    Make mine a double!

    My husband was driving SAG last year while I rode. He said a woman had her very expensive light get jolted off her bike and dashed into many little pieces on that section.

    My GPS wouldn't stay on. Every time I went over an expansion joint, it would shake the bike so hard it moved the batteries away from the connectors.

    Other than that section, it is a fantastic ride. We're planning a trip down there this summer - for some mountain biking.
