Description: [Note that date was updated since original post] This is a scenic loop with about 7000 ft of climbing, mainly through remote, narrow, shady, and poorly marked forest service roads. There’s a campground half-way that should have water, but please bring plenty of food and water and a bike that’s in good working order, as there are no other services along the way. The first half is a rolling descent, the 2nd half is a rolling climb, so pace yourself accordingly. There’s one section of dirt road/broken pavement for a couple miles, so I'd recommend 25 or 28 mm tires. The roads really are not marked, so it’s important on this ride that we regroup and wait for everyone fairly regularly. This is a club weekend ride, so there will be snacks and ice cold drinks afterwards.
