    NorCal East, Sunday 6/27

    This will be a fast ride. Riding with the Folsom Bikes club/team. It's not a no drop ride. Likely to average 17+. Possible route is the Cothrin Ranch loop http://ridewithgps.com/routes/103854

    Note: route is subject to dramatic changes.

    ~51 miles and 5200 feet.

    Leaving Folsom Bikes at 7:30am. Or, I'm leaving my house in Rancho at 6:15 for a leisurely ride up to the shop. This will be more like 83 miles.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Since Saturday is a no ride day this week, I might be able to sneak out on Sunday to do this. Hard to ride on Sunday's since it sets a bad example for the kids when Dad ditches church...

    My bro and I have been cycling the Folsom area lately, would love to do this ride but I am busy all weekend. I'll let my brother know about this ride. He averages 17-17.5mph averages on 50milers, hmmm since it is a no-drop I assume there will be regroup points?

    There may not be regroup points. This will be a fast ride, and the climbing won't be slow. I expect to get dropped about 2/3 the way through.

    Some of the guys have been talkinig about doubling the miles and the climbing as DR training. So we may do a dramatically different route.

    Keep in mind you'll be riding with Cat 3 and 4, along with some good Masters racers. Just want to make sure you don't get in over your head.

    ditto. I read it wrong, "is not a no-drop ride".
