6:45am Meetup / 7:00am Sharp Rollout

Join us for a flat but brisk ride from Rocklin to Wheatland via the backroads of Placer and Sutter counties. We will not be hammering, but because this is such a flat ride, be prepared for some consistent pacelining. We will stop in Wheatland for a snack and some water. Slightly earlier start than normal to try to beat some of the heat. This is a No Sweep ride, but there will be regroups along the way and I will stop for mechanicals. Note, there is no water until mile 46 (Wheatland), please come prepared! Post ride grub & beverages at Boneshaker for those that want to partake.

There is also the option of cutting out the portion near the Toyota Amphitheater, which can cut about 10 miles off the ride if you want to go straight to Wheatland and wait for the group.
