BF Sac/Folsom Century

I'm sure there's some interest in getting together for a century ride. I can be climb heavy, or climb moderate. The moderate route has about 5500 feet. For the heavy ride, I might be able to work up to 10,000 feet. Likely leaving from near my house in Rancho.

The only problem is coming up with a date. I know racing season is gearing up and there are a mess of organized centuries as well. I'd like to do it in April or May before it gets really hot.

For those of you that would like to attend, what dates are good? Once we can narrow down to a few, I'll post a poll. And do you want a lot of climbing, or not so much?

I am interested. I used to live near the river in Rancho Cordova (on La Loma Dr) but that was before I took up road biking. Back then I would ride my old hybrid bike up and down the ARBT and I thought the "hill" going up to Folsom Lake was really big and scary. It sounds fun to revisit the area

Ben, that's really close to where I live. I'm on Las Casas.

I'm doing a mountain biking trip to South Yuba the weekend of 4/24. Other weekends look good to me.

I'd be interested in this... March will be difficult for me, but most of April and May should work (outside of that Santa Rosa Wine Country Century weekend on May 2).
