    Which Sacto person is hosting TofCA ride?

    Hey Sacto folks. The Tour starts in your fine city. What are you going to do about it?

    I know if it started in Antioch (and I'm sure it will some day.) I'd plan a sort easy ride about early enough that we could all be at the start when the show started.

    No pressure.

    Don't look at me. I'd have to look up when it even is.

    Hmmm, I could maybe do that. Let me ponder...

    Wow, it's actually on the weekend for once. Last few years, it's been mid-day, mid-week. I might actually be able to tag along for this.

    Curtis! Thanks for the much-needed kick in the ass. I'lll commandeer this bad-boy.
    The prologue starts at 1:30 which leaves a lot of time pre-prologue to get a ride on.
    I would like suggestions/requests from out-of-towners as to what kind of ride y'all wanna do?

    There's a really nice river cruise we could take. It would easily become a hammerfest and be a heck of a lot of fun. We could have a relaxing coffee afterwards and have plenty of time to gather our bearings before the start.

    The ARBT would be a great run too. We could ride from Old Sac to Hazel and back no problem. 15-20mph ride on Sacramento's cycling gem.

    We could head out to Davis and back on the causeway (cough) ALEX (cough). The West Capitol would be a hootenanny.

    So what's it gonna be baby? Do you want him? Or do you want me? Cuz I want you! Baby baby baby...

    You're going to have to do better than West Capitol and I-80 to get me off my ass.

    I'll be riding to the prologue from Davis. Maybe I'll come earlier if there is a group meeting up.

    I'll be in downtown also but not sure if I'll ride (since I live a walk away)... if I ride, I'll be on my commuter with SLR ready! Hopefully see some of you over there!

    Sounds good...

    I'll likely join in, unless the wife changes my plans. If anybody wants to ride down to Sac from Folsom/Gold River/Rancho Cordova along the parkway then let me know. We can meet up somewhere and go from there.

    If it's not wet, I'd be pleased to join you on the ride down the ARBT to town. I can meet you at Hagan Park (roughly mile marker 15.5).

    There should be bike valet parking in front of the West Steps.

    Delta ride sounds fine to me. Where do we meet and what time?

    Ok Joel. I've been playing with bikely.com the past hour and am about to throw my laptop. I made a route sheet with mileage and did something that made me logout of bikeforums and poof! It's gone. I'm too tired to do it for the 3rd time...

    Basically, meet at the Railroad Museum in Old Sac, take front street to broadway, broadway to Riverside. Riverside Right again at the "T". Continue down Riverside which turns into pocket around mile 9 Pocket back over I-5 and a right on Freeport. Freeport to the bridge. Over bridge and a right on South River Road. South River Road all the way back up to Jefferson. Jefferson to Sacramento Ave and then back over the harrowing and death-defying I street bridge to our starting point. 31 miles.

    This route is really fast so I don't see it taking much more than 1-1/2, ok 2 hours to complete. Prologue starts at 1:30, so say,,,, 10am start?

    That sounds good to me. I'm going to ride down from home, so 10 am in from of the train museum works out fine. Easy to get to from the ARBT.

    How far is that route? Looks about 20 miles on a guess?

    I'm hoping to do this on my new-to-me fixed/single, so 20ish is about right. I just have to guess whether I need to flip it to the single side.

    Do you have parking hints?
