Due to the very hot weather, we will do a shorter route this week and start at 7.30am.
 
We  will start at Meadow Vista Park at 7:30am and do this route:

23 miles with 1900' of climbing. 

If anyone wishes to extend the ride there are optional detours to the American river, down Iowa hill and to Bear River on the way back from Colfax.
 
Hope to see you there.

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.

Sunday

Cycling School

Where: Various - check calendar
When: Sundays - check calendar

The Cycling Education Committee(CEC) offers a series of rides on Sundays to promote cycling knowledge, skills and safety.  These are "no-drop" rides especially intended for riders wishing to learn about cycling as well as wanting to develop their cycling skills and fitness.  They are social rides, generally at the pace of the slowest rider, and have a "sweep" so no one gets dropped. Routes are usually in the range of 15 to 20 miles and not too hilly. All have a short pre-ride clinic about cycling. The names of these rides and ride leaders are:

Cycling 100: Ted Herr
Cycling 101: Rudy Dressendorfer
Cycling 102: Ed O'Connell

Please check the calendar for dates and details.

Please RSVP by sending an Email to: ride101@sfcyclists.org
and indicate which ride you plan to attend.

Hikers Wanted

Many SFCC'ers have signed up to join the Sierra Foothills Hiking Group for added cross training, fitness, and fun. This newly formed group invites anyone who enjoys group hiking along the many great trails in the Auburn area. You do not have to be an SFCC member to join.

The hikes are in the 3 - 7 mile range and typically take place in the afternoon (after morning bike rides). Hike announcements are made via an email group and private Facebook page. If you would like to be added to one or both, please contact Kathy Welch at hikers@sfcyclists.org.

Festival of Lights

When: Friday, June 23rd   to  Tuesday, June 27th (4 nights)

Members...Summer Camp will be in Mt. Shasta City this coming year! We will be based at the Mt. Shasta KOA The facility has RV camping (both full hookups and water/elec sites), tent camping, and kamping kabins. The closest motel to the KOA (2 blocks away) is the Cold Creek Inn.

Plan on three days of cycling and at least one hike. Our cycling routes will be mostly the Mt. Shasta Super Century 135 miler spread across three days. This is the McCloud River Falls Trail hike.

Click here for a sneak preview of the routes under consideration. You can click on the 'SHOW ALL ON MAP' button and all the routes will show up on the map.  If you hover your cursor over any given route, that route will be highlighted (in black) on the map.  There is no need to RSVP (using the button on the page) at this time...in early June I'll ask for your RSVP (and will keep track a different way).

And of course there is much more to do in Mt. Shasta than ride a bike, and I'll also be detailing some of those activities in future emails.

Mark your calendars, make your reservations, and stay tuned!

Kathy Welch, Summer Camp Coordinator SFCC
