Folsom Hill Training Loops

A choice of 8 hill training loops from warm up to challenging. All loops start and end in the parking lot, near food and restrooms. Ride any combination of loops in any order.
Ride leader will sweep riders new to these routes. Good for hill training and anyone hill-curious (about routes above D grade).

An explanation for those not familiar with this "ride":
We typically do the warm up loop together and then split into groups, depending on which riders want to do a more or less challenging loop next. Riders' pace on climbs can vary, so we regroup before the next climb. At the end of each loop, riders decide what loop they want to do next, possibly forming into new groups, or take a coffee/snack break. Call/text the ride leader if you have questions.
