This Follow The Leader (FTL) is a weekly hill training ride that takes us from Rocklin via the rolling hills to Auburn for coffee and treats. The route and coffee stop is determined by the participants at the ride start. Routes generally include Lincoln, Loomis, Newcastle and all roads in between. The destination may include climbs on Ophir, Indian Hill, Baxter, Ridge Road, Mt Vernon, etc.
This is a no sweep, no que-sheet ride, however, route is determined at ride start and re-grouping occurs as needed to keep the group together, no one is left behind.
A typical ride may be 35 - 40 miles with 1,800 - 2,600 feet climbing, where the ability of the riders will be considered at ride start.
Note: some less busy country roads may be without a bike lane.
Here are some examples of previous routes taken, but not guaranteed to be the exact route next time ridden:

The coffee is excellent, the cappuccino is delectable, and the treats are delightful. Special mention, however, has to be given to the homemade quiches. Two routes are available, and follow the same roads and trails to the coffee shop (mile 18.) On the return, the long route climbs Sierra College Blvd. before it returns to the False Ravine and Miner’s Ravine trails. The Short route avoids the Sierra College climb and follows the same trails you took to the coffee shop. I will sweep the long route at 12 mph. The short route will not be swept, so I suggest you ride with a friend.

We will head out of Gold River to Roseville, Loomis, and Newcastle. The forecast is not calling for rain or freezing temperatures, so we should enjoy a beautiful day riding in the rural areas of S. Placer county. In addition to the 64-mile route, I am also adding a 45-mile route. Initially, both routes follow the same roads and trails, stopping at Bru Coffee House in Loomis at mile 22. The short route returns to Gold River via Val Verde and other well-traveled roads. The long route will go up to Penryn and Newcastle before it returns to Gold River. Due to the long route length, there will be an additional rest stop at a Starbucks at mile 45. ----------------------------------------- Updates: 1. If you downloaded the routes before 1/25/2023, please re-download them because I made some changes, especially on the short route. 2. The start time has changed to 8:30 AM. Due to the long route‘s length, we need to start earlier. The original 8:00 AM start was in error. *Bru Cafe Loomis-1A (C45) approx. 1,800ft* https://ridewithgps.com/routes/41859370 *Bru Cafe Loomis-1B (B64) Approx. 3,100ft* https://ridewithgps.com/routes/41859387 *RWGPS planning tool always overestimates the elevation gain by a few hundred feet
