Road Ride - SF to Ebbets, Monitor, Reno & idunno - 9/22 - 9/24

Route change:

Anyone that want to ride, all, part or meet-up:

Mon 9/22 - starting in the SF area and running up to Gualala on 9/22 early AM, cutting over to either Boonville Rd or the 20, and head out past Clear Lake, up to to the 49 and the 70, over to 395 to Reno. Long, long full day of riding.

I'm starting with coffee at Husdon Cafe on College & Manila in Oakland at 0600 hrs Monday. Thence over Richmond Bridge, out SFD Blvd to the Coast and up and away. Second coffee stop Bovine Bakery at Pt. Reyes Station about 7:30 or so, thence onward.

Tue 9/23 around and about in Sierras (not planned out yet - looking for ideas) and then,

Wed 9/24 back to SF via Ebbets/ hwy 4, with a detour to the 120 for lunch at Ferrarese's Deli in Oakdale and the sprint home.

Anyone game for a Monday ride up the coast - or all or part of beyond feel free. I take time off when I can get it, my last gasp of freedom until well after the new year....

I am on a 06' Caponord with K60's and can do noobish trail work similar to Titus Canyon, but no rock climbing on her. So until I get better ideas it's all road.

Any folks off and bored to tears that want to ride well hell chime in.

Start as far north on Hwy 49 as you can. Exploring Hwy 88/89 is good. Right at the intersection of the two, the 4x4 trail up to Burnside Lake is pretty cool. If you have time to kill, you could run out to Virginia City, NV.

Hwy 4 is a bichin' road, no matter which way you take it. The Slick Rock trail out of Alpine Lake is challenging, but you can also access Utica Lake via Spicer Road.

That Deli in Oakdale makes great big sandwiches. You might want to bring a small cooler for the leftovers.

You could also pick up a growler of beer from the Snowshoe Brewery in Arnold.

Thanks for the tips! I took that road to Virginia City from the Mount Rose 395 junction to whatever it is, right after the new paving job, what a hoot of a ride up the hill!

Tomorrow a long day - Tuesday wide open, I might head out towards Walker IR / Schurz, time will tell.

By the way the meet time tomorrow at Bovine Bakery in Pt.Reyes is 8am.

You'll be running into a lot of smoke. Sat. I looped 108/50 and Hope Valley and the Tahoe basin were totally filled with dense smoke. But the east side was pretty decent, might want to make your Tuseday ride around there.

The aspens around Monitor Pass summit and just east of Sonora Pass are turning but everything else is still pretty green.

Aye on the smoke - I carry eye drops and water

Will have to see how it plays out as I turn east. Time for bed.
