E18 Fish Hatchery to Beals Point Sprint Series

  • Mar 26, 2013 · 5:15 PM

Ride Summary:

Terrain: Mild hills at 5% grade with a few short sections of 7%
Distance: approx 18 Miles
Rider Level: Intermediate riders and up.
Sweep: No

You should be able to maintain a pace of 19 mph for ~15 flat miles on your own if you want to stay with the back of the pack. The pace varies from 19-25+ mph depending on the pace line you ride with.

This biweekly ride will be a fast paced ride designed to build endurance and speed. We'll meet at 5:15pm and leave at 5:30pm or before if all the Yes RSVPs are present. We'll ride up the Hazel Bridge and take the trail on the north side of Lake Natoma all the way to Beals Point. Once we arrive at Beals we'll read down to the restrooms on the left side of the lot and take a quick break then head back to the Hatchery. 

As a note, the decent from Beals Point all the way down to Negro Bar is a "take it easy zone". There is no need to pass anyone to keep up with the leaders, we will do a rolling regroup if necessary. SINGLE FILE & STAY IN YOUR LANE!

Do not be discouraged if you get dropped on this ride. PLEASE KNOW YOUR LIMITS!

Here are two links that give some good pointers on dos and don'ts while in a paceline.

Please bring plenty of water and as always your helmet is required.

    A reminder that if you would like this ride to continue happening, a new person will need to step up to take over as ride leader effective with the ride on April 30.

      Yes and no. I'm a little disappointed that I won't be able to lead the ride. However, I made a choice to accept an assignment doing construction inspection for at least a year. I likely will be working in Stockton.
