I am going to be in Modesto this coming weekend. I need to get a long ride in (100 miles +/-). I'm looking for suggestions. I would like it to be flatish, some climbing is fine. Ideally I am looking for good roads in terms of saftey and smooth pavement. I realize I'm not going to find 100 miles of good pavement, but some routes will have more than others. I will check bikely, but it's hard to get a feel for what the roads will be like just using that site.
Any of you Modesto area riders have a suggestion? I could ride north toward Stockton and add miles there if any Stockton riders have ideas. Or south toward Turlock if there are options there. West toward the Bay area (even Patterson Pass if I must). You get the idea.
