Saturday 11/15 Ride

I'm planning a ride this Saturday to start in Rancho Cordova. Head up and around Folsom and then to Loomis and back. Should be around 65 or 70 miles. Approx 2500 feet of climbing on mostly rollers, with 1 more extended 8-9% climb. Weather forecast looks good. No wet stuff falling and up to around 70 for a high.

Haven't picked a start time yet, but figure sometime between 9 and 10:30am. If you have a preference, please make it known!

Standing offer is open for up to 2 (some of you know what that means).

Who's in?

Awesome! I do have a ride pending with a friend in the Bay Area... if that falls through, I'm definitely in for this one. Saturday rides are a lot easier/better for me (this is just a bad coincidence on this specific date, so count me out for now...)

Yeah this weather is sweet! I'll be mountain biking tomorrow or I'd come.

I cut the ride a little short since it was just me and I wanted to get home early so my wife could get out for a ride. Ended up at just shy of 40 miles. The Iron Point grade was a tough climb! The rest of it was a lot of fun. About 1500 feet climbing.
