This will be "round one" of the Motherlode/Sutter Creek ride (the other one is on Sat May 3). This ride is somewhat shorter than many of the other rides planned for this season. I suspect we will return home by 3:30pm or so.
We will leave the meetup location in Roseville at 10am, and ride through Folsom, then down Scott Road through Rancho Murietta, then about 3 miles on Hwy 16 to Ione Road to Michigan Bar Road to Buena Vista Road to Pardee Dam Road to Paloma Road to Hwy 26 east to the town of Mokelumne Hill. We will then go north on Hwy 49 to Sutter Creek where we will have lunch at Pepita's Mexican Restaurant (yummy carnitas tacos in crispy shells). After a relaxing lunch, we will head back via Hwy 49 to Hwy 16 to Latrobe Road, then stop for ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery just south of Hwy 50. We will then ride around the south end of Folsom Lake and back into Roseville. The route is shown in blue on the map.
