Welcome to our website and cycling club. Club membership is open to all! Whether you're a racer, recreation rider, or just starting out, the Sierra Foothills Cycling Club wants you! Get to know more about our club in our FAQ, or drop us a line from our contacts list.
Our club's mission is to share our passion for bicycle riding through organized events, including a variety of weekly rides designed for both novice and experienced bicyclists of all ages.
Our group bike rides traverse the beautiful foothills of the Sierras in and around the city of Auburn. For more information about our rides visit: ride info.

David Bodick, Health Education Consultant for the state of Calif. and SFCC member, has worked on a program to raise money for the cycling community thru the sales of special CA license plates. Visit calbikeplate.com and pre-order a plate with the bicycle logo. The program needs 7500 pre-paid applications to move forward.
Your purchase of the California Bike Plate will generate grants to promote cycling as a physical activity, fund bike skill development and nutrition education at the elementary school level and create safe places to ride through cycling advocacy.

Location: Recreation Park in Auburn (map)
Our Ride Director, John Holt, has three fun routes for us:
Please arrive about 20 minutes early to park, sign in, and get your route sheet.
What to bring for the Potluck: Last names starting with:
A thru L -- Salad
M thru R -- Dessert
S thru Z -- Appetizer
SFCC will provide tri-tip and veggie burgers and sodas. Joe Hernandez will be preparing the tri-tip and will be the chief barbecuer!
Please no alcohol or glass containers allowed under the conditions of our permit.
There will be a raffle to raise money to purchase a bench in memory of Barbara Crowell. This bench (which costs $1800) will be installed at Meadow Vista Park, perhaps under the tree we planted for her this year in May. Raffle tickets will be sold during the BBQ/Potluck and the drawing will be held immediately after lunch (around 1pm). So bring lots of $$$...we have some great prizes!!!
What: Cycling: 4 rides with a nice mix of terrain...flat (yes FLAT), rolling hills, long climbs/descents
Also: Theree are so many great hikes in this area, we'll try to fit in one.
I hope to follow tradition and have a group potluck on Tuesday evening, June 23rd at the RV park, a pizza party Wednesday evening (at Movin' West), and perhaps a dinner out on Thursday evening.
If you don't wish to camp, I recommend the River Pines Motel (price list here) that is only 1/2 mile away from the RV park. This is by far the best choice for lodging near the campground. Other options are Chalet View and Graeagle Meadows.
If Movin' West is full, there is Little Bear RV Park less than two miles away (although less than 200 feet from the railroad...). And further away, but a very nice park is Clio's River Edge RV Park (no tents allowed).

All of the same routes we rode in 2018 will be repeated except Antelope Lake is out; Frenchman Lake (three options including a gravel ride) will replace it. I have also added a 100k option to the big flat loop. To see all the routes, go to: https://ridewithgps.com/events/101220-sfcc-summer-camp-2020 (click on 'Show All On Map').
