A rather hilly route for Saturday, but the bigger/longer climbs are all in the first half. 
 

Moderate to casual pace through Loomis, Granite Bay and Newcastle ranging from 18 to 25 miles and generally with options to shorten. Mild to moderate rolling hills and nice pavement. The group always breaks into multiple subgroups based on the pace each rider is comfortable with. There may be a fast contingent but the largest group of riders enjoy one of several more casual paces. There is always a sweep so no one is ever left behind. Regroups are common and beginners and guests are always welcome.

No drop, casual paced rides with multiple regroups. Because of our foothill setting the rides are rolling to hilly, and have between 1000 to 2000 ft of climbing in each ride. If you've been riding in the flats and want to experience the foothills, this will be a good ride to join. Because of the climbing, I do not consider these beginner rides. We meet afterward for coffee and chatter.

Boulder Creek Rd is a gated residential community, respect privacy with soft voices. Convenience store at mile 16.5, restroom at Loomis Basin Community Park mile 17.5 however there are many trees and shrubs along the route. LOL

Next Symposium Date:   Thursday, October 4th, 2018
Time:    6:30 - 8:00 pm
Where:  Bicycle Emporium (map)

Don't miss this opportunity to improve your cycling skills by attending the Education Symposiums offered by our very own Wig Sy. This is a quarterly series that happens every first Thursday of each quarter (January, April, July and October) that builds up on one another so please do not miss any part of the series.

A collection of questions and answers from past and current cyclists that Wig has coached and trained using the most current scientific data and hearsay. A mandatory attendance is required for all members wishing to understand why they stink... odorous or performance wise. Learn how to get better by riding slower, how to be faster by resting more, how to be healthier by exercising less.

Come and ask Wig any questions you might have.
