LOP & Table Meadows - Thursday Ride Thu, Oct 18, 9:00am
0 comments


Where: Meadow Vista Park, 1101 Meadow Vista Rd, Meadow Vista, CA 95722, USA (map)

Hilly, casual ride. Placer Hills, Dog Bar, Magnolia, easier Darkhorse climb, Table Meadows, rest stop at LOP Starbucks. Return Magnolia, Dog Bar, Placer Hills. About 30 miles.

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.

I have chosen one of the Fast Friday rides (but not that pace!) for this Saturday.  It turns on to Brace but just long enough to catch Barton so we miss the construction.   


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.
