Join me as we attempt this ride once again - it was rained out last month. We'll take Applegate Road to Boole and do a nice out & back. I've added a couple of miles on Applegate Rd with a U-turn at the overpass. Continue to Crother and right on Placer Hills Road to ARP Ranch Road for another U-turn - then it's all downhill back to the park. As always, it will be a COLD start from MV Park so dress warm! Coffee & conversation after at The Local Cafe.

Ride Description and Notes:
Saturday rides are typically 20 to 25 miles and are a more casual pace. Also there is usually a faster group of riders that will ride off the front and to their own pace. Rides are swept with a regroup along the route. Sweeping may include different people and regroups don't need to include the entire group. Parking at the Flower Farm should not be in front of the Cafe but in the gravel parking lot toward the back. Also, join us for coffee and conversation afterwards at the Flower Farm Cafe.

Sunday rides are at least 40 miles in length, giving moderate level riders the chance to ride a little further than our average distance. You'll find some rides that are flattish and some that are killer hilly. The average pace of the Sunday rides varies hugely based on the distance and the amount of climb. The start location of this ride varies weekly, so check the calendar.
