NorCal East, Sunday 31st.

I'm going to hit a few hills on Sunday. Baxter Grade and Ridge Road. Both are to the West of Auburn. Ride will be about 80 miles, and around 4600 feet. I've never climbed Baxter (though I've gone down it a few times), but it's just over 2 miles long. Ridge isn't too bad, going up in stair steps.

Rolling out at 9am from Hagan Park in Rancho.

Anyone interested?

You might find this surprising but I'm only good for about 50-60 miles these days. I kind of sluffed Sept-Dec, gained a little weight, and just got lazy muscles. If anything I may ride from my house to Folsom for the crits and back. Maybe join you a little later in the season Jo'el... Doing STP with my bros so I have a feeling I'll be in mileage shape by March.

I'll be out of it by March. Hernia surgery late in Feb, which means a big layoff.

Pending what my wife does on Saturday, I might ride up to watch some of the crits.

What time do the crits start? I'm trying to decide what to do Sunday and this might be just the ticket.
