Bring your climbing legs! This is a counter clockwise Folsom Lake loop from Rocklin with a Rattlesnake Bar kicker. We will go through Granite Bay, up Salmon Falls to Pilot Hill, then the Rattlesnake Bar Rd out-and-back before heading up to Cool. From Cool we will descend into the Confluence, then up Old Foresthill Rd, across the bridge and into Auburn. Then it's all down hill home. Short rest stops in Cool and Auburn. This is a no sweep ride, but we will regroup a few times, and as needed on the climbs. I will stop for mechanicals. Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29362603 Please print your own route sheet!

The Southern Inyo Spring Double has two distance options, the Highland and Lowland routes. The Highland is 202 miles / 13,000ft elev and the Lowland is 193 miles / 7,800ft elev. The Lowland route is a good option as a first double century if you are new to Doubles. Route and Registration information: http://www.inyoultra.com/ride/southern-inyo-spring-dc/ I will be doing the Highland route and will be going down on Friday afternoon if anyone wants to meet for dinner. Because of the nature of the ride, we will not ride this as a group unless riders are of similar ability.
