Ok folks, I keep trying to get ya'll to come out here for a ride. Here's the route that I'm thinking of. It's a beautiful ride, my favorite in the area. http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3522737 There's a lunch stop at a Subway in Shingle Springs. Maybe if we plan it now, we can make it happen. We can even do dinner at my place post ride.
If we do it from my house, it's more like 82mi, but it's a shorter drive . Open to either a Saturday or a Sunday. Thinking mid-March.
