    Location visible to members

    Weather note: The weather forecast for Saturday 5/18 cool high 50°s to low 60°s with a high probability for late morning and afternoon rain. The general rule of this group is that the ride is cancelled if it is raining. The ride takes the roads of the urbanized farmland and vineyards along the Sacramento River, Babel Slough Road, and returns to Nugget on Jefferson and the back to the Village Parkway for just over 21 miles. As the area is pretty flat, we should cruise comfortably around 12-14mph. the ride takes anywhere from an hour-and-half if riding faster, but generally takes 1:40-1:50 to finish. This loop, bordered by the river and Jefferson Blvd through largely farm country with minimal traffic is a delight. It's hard to beat, offering a few options that allow it to be varied between 10 miles and 60 miles (message Lyle Smith for the longer ride options, or show up at the 10:30 ride). Be sure to plan for the traditional post-ride breakfast at Nugget. Good food, great conversation and wild tales of the ride are assured. The weather forecast for Saturday 5/18 cool high 50°s to low 60°s with a high probability for late morning and afternoon rain. A good bike with properly inflated tires, a bottle of water, ID and credit card for emergency/coffee after, should be all you need. In case of a flat, carrying an extra inner tube for your wheels, tire levers, and a frame pump or CO2 cartridge to inflate your tire is a pretty good idea. As the weather turns really nice this time of year, we expect more riders to show up for these rides. There may be a need to break up into 2 groups, one riding at 12 - 14mph and the other at 10 - 12 mph. If you're likely to be a better fit with the slower group, please let me know a few days in advance so I can try to ensure you have a cycling companion to share and enjoy your ride, without compromising the ride for others. We shouldn’t have rain this late in the Spring, but if it is raining, the ride is cancelled (or be prepared to ride with Lyle with expectations of averaging 15 mph for 30-60 miles).

  • Saturday’s 10:30 Ride

    Nugget Markets

    The 10:30 ride is generally a longer ride of 30 miles (Sugar Mill/Clarksburg Loop), 45 Miles (Courtland Loop), or 60 Miles (Walnut Grove) Loop. Repeating the 8:00 group’s 21-mile Babel Slough Loop is an option. This is considered a training session for riders preparing for the longer Sacramento Century or Davis’ Foxy Fall Century 100 mile or 100 kilometer (62 miles) rides in October. Riders should be prepared for all weather, particularly wind. As the temperature rises, having an extra water bottle is a good idea. Energy bars and gels are recommended as all of these rides are over two hours in the saddle. Please bring at least an extra inner tube, tire levers, frame pump/CO2 cartridge in case of flats and to avoid having to make “The Call of Shame.” Plan to meet at the bike racks at Nugget. Or check in early as the 8:00 Ride group is finishing breakfast inside Nugget.
