Sunday, 8am from my house. 83mi, around 4500 ft. 4 hills, 2 short, 2 longer. We'll ride up Taylor, Baxter, Ridge, and Powerhouse. Lunch at Subway by Folsom Bike on the way back. A couple of water stops en-route. Pacing 18-19 on flats. Route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1516977

Come along! Helmet required. 2 water bottles, snacks, some cash, stuff to fix a flat, etc. You know the drill.
