Where: Serene Lakes, California 95728, USA (map)



We will ride from our cabin in Serene Lakes to the Rainbow Lodge Area and back (22 mi. And 1500 ft. Climbing). 
  About 50 minute drive, and usually about 20 degrees cooler.  We’ll host an informal BBQ after 
( burgers/dogs). We’ll supply eating stuff, you bring beverages to share. 
For this one I’ll ask you to RSVP, so I know how much stuff to get.  I’ll ask those eating to kick in a little$ to cover food cost.  Car pooling would be helpful as well.  We’ll ride around 9:00 AM, since you have to drive and it should be cooler. 
I will send more specific follow up notes a little later. When you feel you can commit to the 23rd send me an RSVP

August default route info:

- Terrain: rolling    Pace: moderate 
- Short Ride: 24 miles  1130 ft. climbing 
https://ridewithgps.com/routes/26668082 
 
Restroom and drink/snack purchase at Beach Hut Deli in Penryn and Valero gas station in Newcastle. 

Small to moderate rollers, restroom/water stop at mile 16 in Penryn. 

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.

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.
