Folsom Hill Training Loops

A choice of 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.

I'll be doing route 9. This is a new (to me) route created and ridden previously by Doug, with the option to repeat an out and back section. I'm looking forward to trying one particular climb at least a second time (they are always easier the second time). Join us or pick any loops you like.
