Brief Description:

This is week#3 training ride for us to ride 100k for Tour De Cure in May. This will be a good training ride for us to get ready for the big ride.  You are more than welcome to join us. Perry will support and sweep the ride. We will go over the basic safety riding requirements before each ride.  Safety is NO.1 for our riding.

This week, the route is a little shorter than last week, but we've added a little bit of climbing through part of Folsom, including Costco Hill; about 2000 ft. or about the same as the Tour de Cure 100K (in half the miles) (what doesn't kill you makes you better!)

    Nice ride with nice people today! Thanks Perry to help fixing the flat; thanks Mark and Jeff to wait for us at the top of Costco Hill. As a group, I think we did good job to take care of each other and the same time had good workout. We should do more. :)
