On the second of our “Slow Death Ride” series we’ll climb Monitor Pass at 8314’, then dip down to Highway 395 at 5100’ before returning on the same route. The climb back up to Monitor is a tough one, but this ride can be shortened considerably by skipping the descent to Hwy 395. Bring plenty of water/snacks. Only water source is at Hwy 395. Ride will be led at a moderate C pace, but faster riders are welcome to form their own group(s). Ride meets at Grover Hot Springs State Park (Campsite 46) at 8:45 for 9:00 am departure. No parking available at start. Contact leaders by Sunday, 6/9 for more information (no phone or internet at park): Guy Shuman ( [masked] Cell)
