Moderate to casual pace through Loomis, Granite Bay and Newcastle ranging from 18 to 25 miles and generally with options to shorten. Mild to moderate rolling hills and nice pavement. The group always breaks into multiple subgroups based on the pace each rider is comfortable with. There may be a fast contingent but the largest group of riders enjoy one of several more casual paces. There is always a sweep so no one is ever left behind. Regroups are common and beginners and guests are always welcome.

Please be aware that there is one very bad uphill stretch of Highway 49 out of Cool that has no shoulder and a fair amount of traffic.

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.

Bill Bohmer and Kevin Borden from Placer Sheriff's Search and Rescue presented an award to the SFCC board in appreciation of our Club's donation to their organization. The money was used to purchase a vacu-immobilizer device used to evacuate a patient who has suffered a potential spinal injury. This device is much more efficient and comfortable for the patient than the traditional backboard.

Thanks to all who donated to make this purchase possible.
