If possible, for 2015 we are asking participants to register for our "2 day weekend" rides, so we can plan better. (Registration is not a strict requirement so please feel free to decide at the last minute if necessary.)
LDT RIDE: PLACERVILLE/SIERRA FOOTHILLS WEEKEND
Explore the Central Sierra foothills South of Placerville, with plenty of climbing and lovely quiet roads. The C’s and D’s start by tackling steep but beautiful Slug Gulch Road. D’s and E’s climb Omo Ranch Road up to Dew Drop at 4800 feet before descending Shake Ridge Road to Fiddletown. E’s add a loop to Sutter Creek. B’s will take a more mellow route through Fiddletown. All groups have lunch at Vintage Deli in Plymouth, then return to Pioneer Park via Shenandoah School Road and Dorado Canyon. Rain cancels. Online route sheets.
