NorCal East, Sunday 2/12: Long Ride with Hills!

This Sunday will be a longish ride with some hills. I'll be rolling from home at 9am (let me know if you need directions). From there, I'll head up to Folsom Bike to pick up anyone joining in there (should be there about 10). And then: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/930445 Add 32mi to the route for the ride to the bike shop and back to my place.

RWGPS WAY overestimates the climbing on this route, by as much as 1500 to 2000 ft!

Pacing around 17 on flats, regroups at hill tops, lunch at Newcastle Deli.

Helmet, snacks, water, money for lunch, etc.

Hope some of you will come along.

Joel, have you ever ridden on Mosquito Ridge Road? We drove up there last weekend-pretty cool area. There's a grove of sequoias pretty far up.

Not yet, but it's on the list. Possibly something we'll hit in the Spring.
