    Which rides are you planning to do this year?

    I am hoping to do Foxy's Fall, Marin and Napa but only the metric. Anyone else planning on doing those?

    So far I am in on the Motherlode Metric and the Backboards Challange. With eyes on registering for the Giro Bello as well. Probably no more than 5 paid events and returning to the metrics after doing centurys.

    Is there a calendar or something out there that lists all these upcoming events? I've checked the Norcal Events forum but its pretty dead...

    I know there is a Tour de Cure in June, which I think is a huge event, but thats not even posted here...

    Been a while since I did the full Primavera - and this year it's the day before my birthday... I think I'll start there.

    Tierra Bella, I Care Classic, SLOBC Wildflower, Marin, Tour de Fuzz. I may take a stab at a Century, but 100K will be the norm. I'm not doing anything that I can't drive to in the am a 3 hr. drive being the max. I'll probably sign up for Foxy's as well.

    Tierra Bella is a maybe, too. I means staying in a motel which means spending money.
    And I end up buying a jersey for my wife and myself, because they have the best ride jerseys. It adds up. But it's a very nice ride.

    I'll probably do the Sonoma Backroads (70 mile version) in May - great ride, by the way, over pretty roads I don't get to very often - basically Petaluma to Tomales Bay by way of the Marshall Wall.

    I haven't done a Primavera in 15 years or more, so I may hit the metric of that.

    If timing permits, the Giro de Vino is always fun. It's also flat, which means I actually have a shot at keeping up with my friends.

    Otherwise, nothing planned yet.

    I have my eye on the La Ruta Loca Randonnee. It will be a way to prove to myself that I am finally back from my knee injury 18 months ago. I can handle about a third of it at the moment, but there should be enough time to prepare.

    Tierra Bella also has truly excellent food - seasoned potato pieces, home-baked bread and such. BTW, you're in Antioch! Rise and shine, hit the road, skip the motel. If you do the Tierra Bella maybe we can meet up and ride a bit together. If you're familiar with the TB, the county has repaved the Gilroy Hot Springs road down to the CDF turnoff thank goodness; that stretch was getting to be in really bad shape.

    It is a blast, but also pretty hard to finish within time limits. I rode it in 13 hours, just half an hour to spare, with just one rest stop for lunch. There are informal group rides before the event that go over parts of the course, you definitely don't want to get lost.

    How does one learn about those group rides?

    San Francisco Randonneurs has a discussion list, and rides are also posted to

    http://bike.duque.net/ride-calendar.htm

    Rides usually start after the rain season, not that we have had much rain this year.

    If you do a lot of the area century rides and want something different, there are some great options in the Mt. Shasta area. We did the Fall River Mills century last year and had a blast. Probably around 300 riders, excellent organization and support, beautiful scenery over lightly traveled roads, and breakfast, lunch and after ride meal that was outstanding. Not the usual spaghetti meal.
    We talked to riders that did the first Castle Crags Century last year and they said it is also a beautiful ride. We are planning on doing that one this year too
    Here are links to the area rides as well as a few other options in Oregon and Washington.

    http://siskiyoucentury.com/ride_info.html
    http://www.castlecragscentury.com/index.html
    http://www.mtshastasummitcentury.com/
    Oregon option:
    http://craterlakecentury.com/ (subject to approval)
    There is always the option to do the Seattle to Portland double century. They have two options. Either do it in two days (100 miles each day) or do the whole thing. Logistically, it is tough, because it is a one way ride, but is is very well organized. We did it in a day on the tandem.
