This is a last-minute scouting run for later, more organized run in the area... call it a "mini-meet."
The course is a run up I-80 out of Sacramento to Auburn, get off for HWY49 north through Grass Valley, over to Nevada City, taking HWY20 to I80 down to I-80 back to Sac. A map of what I'm thinking:
Meet at the Starbucks around Scandia sometime near 8.
I'm planning to head up to North Highlands in the early morning to see my folks around breakfast, and my gf around lunch. In the time between there's time to scout some of the roads up there for a more official run later because there are other good routes to take up there.
