NorCal East, Sunday May 8

Distance: Up to 102 mi
Climbing: Up to ~7000 ft
Level: Intermediate + with strong climbing
Pacing: 17'ish on flats
Sweep: No

I wanted to do a similar route a few weeks ago but Jodi convinced me to do a different one (and it was worth it ). It won't be long before the temperature is too high for comfortable climbing up Old Foresthill, so I'm hitting it often as it's a spectacular climb with amazing scenery.

One of the beautiful things about this route is that you can come for all or part of it. There are a few places where you can head back early if you want less distance and less climbing.

Rolling from my house at 8am. Let me know if you would like directions.
Should hit the bike trail at Hagan Park shortly thereafter.
Should hit the water fountain area of the Fish Hatchery at ~8:30 (will take ~17 mi off the route).
Should hit Folsom Bikes at around 9 for a short 2nd breakfast/coffee stop. This will take ~32 mi off the route.

Choose your starting place and add that to the comments when you RSVP.

The ride will not be swept. If you take off the front, you're on your own. If you fall too far back, you're on your own. Print out and bring a cue sheet if you aren't familiar with the roads.

Lunch will be at Newcastle Deli at approx 65 mi in (if you start from my house).

Helmet, snacks, 2 water bottles, cash for lunch/water, etc. required.

It'll be a beautiful day! Hope some of you will join me.

Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.
