Short 32 mile +1556 ft *La Bou Blue Ravine-2A (CCW, via Sailor Bar Park) https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38132498
Long 41 mile +2216 ft *La Bou Blue Ravine-2B (CCW, via Sailor Bar Park) https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38142515

Both routes are the same as far as the coffee stop, so all riders will be swept on the way out. Only the short route will be swept on the return.

There is a 400ft dirt/gravel path on the way out that can be detoured around if desired.
This is a good ride for "C" grade riders that can do 32/41 miles. The climbing is mostly spread over the ride, with climbing to the top of Iron Point being the biggest challenge on the long route. Call if you have questions.

***UPDATE*** Due to the current (2022/08/29) weather forecast for heat, I will be sweeping the SHORT route. There are various public restrooms on both routes for refilling water bottles. Hydrate well.

ALERET ALERT MANY MANY CHANGES !!!
The start time for this ride is now 8AM due to the expected high temperature.
The biggest change is NEW ROUTE
Because of the heat and air quality we are just going to ride around Lake Natoma. I will reschedule a ride to Wow Wow Lemonade for October.
Be sure you have enough water for the ride with you.
I know it is the day before Labor Day I just liked the sound of the title. Anyway how about doing a short 25 mile ride around Lake Natoma. Then let's meet at the Bel Air in Folsom and ride. Because I said it is a day for Lemonade when we get back to the start we, as a group, will descend on Bel Air and club members can get a lemonade on me. That will make the lemonade taste even better.
The route is in the club library as Kirstein - Lake Natoma Loop from Bel Air 25 C https://ridewithgps.com/routes/40789119

It is way to hot to do the EDH ride today. The way back was entirely in the sun and not a smart ride for 111degrees. Lets do this ride instead which has lots of shade and not as much climbing. Can't wait for this heat to subside. This ride is 31 miles with 1150 of elevation and some needed shade. Stay cool and healthy.
