Leader Phone: 877-845-2453Email: challenge@altaalpina.org
Type of Ride: roadPace: Medium Terrain: Hard
Depart Time: 8:00amMileage: 50
Meeting Place: Turtle Rock Park
Description: This is a club weekend ride in place of the cancelled Alta Alpina Challenge for club members and guests joining us for the first time. (New members can join the club at the start.) After some announcements at the start, we’ll ride from Turtle Rock Park to the top of Luther Pass, the top of Carson Pass, and to the closed gate on Blue Lakes Road, before returning to Turtle Rock Park. Ride leader will stop for optional regroups at each intersection and turn-around. Slower riders have the option to skip passes or turn-around when the group passes in the opposite direction. Really fast and ambitious riders can optionally start early and ride Kingsbury before joining the group. There will be snacks and drinks back at Turtle Rock Park but there won't be any SAG or other support on the route so everyone should carry food and water. The weather forecast looks good but carry a jacket just in case.

Ride Title: Sonora Pass
Ride Leader: Jennie Hamiter
Leader Phone: 530-307-1168 celEmail: jenniehamiter@mac.com
Type of Ride: roadPace: Medium Terrain: Hard
Depart Time: 9:15 amMileage: 50
Meeting Place: Meet to carpool from the Gardnerville Grocery Outlet parking lot at 7:45. Head south. On US395 at CA108, east side of 395, there is a god foresaken Caltrans station; meet there at 9am: park off the highway if possible, at the entrance to the CalTrans station, just outside the gate. Let's roll at 9:15.
Description: This ride has spectacular scenery and about 7,100 feet of climbing, some of it quite steep. Ride CA108 from US35, up and over Sonora Pass at 9600 ft elevation, down to Dardanelles Resort at about 5000 feet, and return. Dardanelles Resort has a convenience store for Gatorade and Fritos and running water. Bring a bike with good brakes and plenty of water. Note that riding from the meeting place to the top of Sonora and turning around, roughly 25 miles total, is a very respectable, tough, steep ride, so consider joining us for an east-side-only ride if the whole thing sounds like too much. Last year about half the group turned around at the top, ideally that would happen again so everyone’s got someone to ride back with. We'll have cold drinks and snacks at the end. The group usually stops at Walker Burger on the way back home. To see the profile of the ride, here’s the metric-century version: <http://ridewithgps.com/routes/4991263>
