Description: This is a moderate ride of 56 miles. This ride does have a couple of significant (by some standards) climbs. Most everyone reading this can handle the two climbs.  :) The total elevation is around 2900 ft. There will be at least two pace groups. Dennis Bulgatz will lead the 17-18 MPH group (overall average).
Myself and the awesome Solomons may team up and lead the 15-16 MPH group (overall average). We will regroup after the two climbs.

There is a descent with a sharp switchback at mile 39.5. Please stay aware.

Rest stop #1 at mile 24.3, which is my parents' house and you do not want to miss this one. There will be restrooms, water, and eats (bananas, peanut butter, bread, etc...).

Rest stop #2 @ mile 37.3 - after the big climb - is a convenience store.

Optional rest stop #3 @ mile 46.9 is a convenience store.

The current forecast looks perfect for a day in the saddle! It could be in the 60's a lot of our ride.

Everyone is expected to ride as a group. If you choose to ride at a much faster pace than the leader or deviate from the route, then you are on your own.

Bring a cue sheet and/or a map to the ride and also have the phone number of the Ride Leader and the phone number of at least one friend.

This is a beautiful route. Please make sure that you can do the stated pace and distance.
