Join us for our second annual SFCC Summer Camp. The camp is designed to provide something for everyone. This amazingly beautiful area provides ride options of every type and challenge with various destinations of historic and scenic interest. We’ll have a variety of these rides available, ranging from casual to more intermediate pace, and from relatively flat to the more strenuous routes that incorporate some of the famous Death Ride climbs. Members will be encouraged to select their own ride, their group and their departure times. There are also mountain biking opportunities near by. Or…, maybe you just want to relax around camp and enjoy the Hot Springs , or the hike to the falls, explore the numerous trails, or just grab a snooze in the hammock. There are a number premier trout streams and lakes nearby for those who would like to fish. Kayaks and canoes are available for rental at some nearby lakes. (Or bring your own). There is great sight seeing in the historic towns of Genoa and Virginia City. One evening the club will host a pot-luck BBQ with the club providing the tri-tips. Last year was amazing and this year is going to be just as much fun. So don’t miss out!
The camp will be headquartered at Grover Hot Springs State Park located in the beautiful “California Alps” southeast of Lake Tahoe . Some motels are located within easy driving of the park, for those who do not camp. If you would like to attend, go to the RESERVE AMERICA website to secure a site. Sites are available for tents and RVs. SFCC members have been booking sites in the 50’s-60’s loop. The reservation process is fairly simple and they do have a friendly cancellation policy.
