Visiting Fresno next week for several days. Thought I'd bring the bike. Found this ride on mapmyride.
I was there for work a few weeks ago. I was working south-west of town and traffic on those rural roads was insanely fast in the morning. If I'm doing this route early, like 5:30 or 6AM, is traffic crazy?
Thanks for the link. Nice site. Looks like some fun rides.
I'm staying in downtown. I only have Friday AM to ride before I have to head back to LA. Not too thrilled about driving to a ride. I don't mind climbing. I do the mountains down here periodically. My daily ride is about 2200 feet of climb.
I thought a ride would be a great way to check out the area.

There is a cafe that caters to cyclists (Blossom Trail Cafe) on Belmont & Academy. You pass it at about 12 miles and again at 40ish(?). If you go a bit beyond the turn off Trimmer Springs Rd there is Doyal's Store (not sure if it is open now .... haven't done this ride since last winter ..... at that time they were prepping for their "grand reopening")
If you don't mind driving to ride here is another out and back with a nice climb then descent. Starts at a Starbucks and passes a convenience store at about 10 miles, with water and a porto at the turnaround.
