This is our week#6 training ride (the last one) for us to ride 100k for Tour De Cure in May. This should be a good training ride to get ready for the big ride. You are more than welcome to join us. We will go over the basic safety riding requirements before each ride. Safety is NO.1 for our riding.
Route is to ride to Folsom, take Barton to Trail Head coffee for snack breaks. Then we will climb the Indian Hills. Regroup just before the Folsom Auburn, we will take Folsom Auburn, Val Verde and Wells back to Barton and back to Greenback and then to America River Bike trail to Gold River. This is relative long rides with many rollers and two big hills. After this, you should be able to ride 100k with ~3,000feet climbing.
Helmet is required. Please bring water, nutrition, sunscreen, flat repair items, and big smiles :).
