Where: Railhead Park, 175 Pacific Ave, Auburn, CA 95603, USA (map)



Description:

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.

Where: Flower Farm Cafe, 9280 Horseshoe Bar Rd, Loomis, CA 95650, USA (map)


- Terrain: rolling Pace: training
- Long Ride: (Generally) 26 miles, 1100 ft. climbing (see email for RWGPS link)

Fast Friday is designated as a Training Ride: brisk pace, no sweep, regroups not planned but we usually have one or two very brief ones; the intended purpose of the ride is working together to save energy pacelining at high speeds.

Barb's Bench

Barbara Crowell Memorial Bench

Many thanks to Keith Hallsten and John Holt for building the pad and mounting the 350+ lb steel bench dedicated to Barbara Crowell. Barbara died tragically in a bike accident in 2014 and as a memorial, the SFCC has raised money to buy the bench and a nearby tree. The bench is located in Meadow Vista Park near the rear parking lot...where many of our club rides would start from.

Thanks also to all those who donated to making the bench and tree a beautiful addition to the park.


license plate

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.
