The club didn‘t open in time for Cinco de Mayo, so this is a make up ride - Dos de Junio. We‘ll ride from Gold River to La Fiesta Taqueria in Folsom (https://www.lafiestaaltena.com/folsom/). Portions are large, so you may want to split a meal with someone or be prepared to take left-overs home!! We expect to sit outside on the patio, but you need to order indoors, so you may want to bring a mask (not sure what the restaurant‘s rules are). Two routes are available: 30 miles-Grade D (https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31159784) and 38 miles-Grade C (https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31159807). Only the short route will be swept.

Ready for a different riding adventure? Come join us on a fast paced, no cue sheet ride. There is no set route or destination. The group will determine the coffee stop and general direction at the beginning of the ride. The ride will be anywhere from 45 to 65 miles and can be flat or up to 3,000 ft of elevation. The coffee break is typically not until 30 miles or so into the ride. The ride will not be swept, riders will be expected to be able to maintain a 15-17 mph pace over the course of the ride. This means on the flat the pace will be anywhere from 19 to 22 mph. While we welcome all riders, unless you are able to keep up with the pace and distance, this is probably not the right ride for you. It is, however a great opportunity to improve your riding or training for an event.

Beat the heat this week with a climb up Baxter Grade to Auburn from Rocklin. The total length of the ride is 51 miles with about 3000 ft of climbing. Meet at the Bel Air Shopping Center on the corner of Stanford Ranch Rd and Sunset Blvd for a 8:00 A.M. start. I'll update the post with the RWGPS route. I'm also working on a shorter route with less climbing that bypasses Baxter Grade and goes up Wise Rd to Ophir. The long route will be swept. The short route travels for a very short length on I-80 from Ophir Road to Maple St. Both routes have the same return down Shirland Tract. You may see a difference in elevation and mileage when comparing Garmin with RWGPS.
