7:45 meetup. 8:00am sharp roll out.
Many people have asked me to repeat the Tour de Rocklin training series I did last year, so here it is! This is the fourth ride of four that will lead up to the TdR Metric Century ride on October 12th. These rides will include parts of the TdR Metric and give you a similar feel, without actually doing the TdR route itself. These are designed a moderate pace, social rides with a 14-16mph average. If you feel you cannot handle this pace, you may still ride, but understand this is NOT swept below the stated pace, so bring a route sheet. We will have a number of regroup points and a rest stop for people to catch up. Likewise, if you wish to join and hammer above the stated pace, that is also okay; but you may be waiting longer at regroups. Regroups will be 3-5 minutes each. Rest stop at is longer (~15-20min).

Please print your own route sheet if you think you need one! Especially since this is not a fully swept ride, it is vital you carry a route sheet if you don't know theses areas. We have had people take wrongs turns in the past and we don't want you to get lost!
Standard disclaimer: helmets required, bring food & water, cash, and repair stuff to be self-sufficient. You should be comfortable riding roads with auto traffic and some with little to no shoulder/bike path.
