Dam Corners and Valleys Ride AGAIN - May 20

Saturday morning at 4:30 am and KCRA's triple doppler is showing clear skies. Looks like it could be one great day!

I'll only post again if it looks like **** when I deliver everyone to the Davis Double start.

We're going to try again. The Davis Double is also on May 20th so we may have a few sane people joining us whilst spouses go abuse themselves. The DD will have a rest stop at Markley Cove from 6-9 am so we should see the DD riders.

This ride will be a relaxed ramble through the countryside. We’ll climb northwest up the canyon alongside Putah Creek over the Monticello Dam and Cardiac Hill, which are the only big climbs of the day, to Moskowite Corner. From there, one little bump and then we fly down Wooden Valley to Mankas Corners and on to Fairfield where we'll take a food break at the coffee house. We’ll turn north, climb a few short rollers and then have a couple options: 1) a nice smooth ride all the way north back to Lake Solano Park and on to Winters or 2) head east across Vaca Valley Road, up Gibson Canyon and the east side of Cantelow. Option 2 rejoins the Option 1 riders for the smooth ride back to Winters.

Start: Steady Eddy's Coffee House in Winters (park in lot next door)
When: On our bikes by 7 am (early because of the heat and the boat hauling idjits)

Length: 62-72
Climbing: 2,780 without the extra climb of Cantelow

To get to Winters: Interstate 505 goes north right into Winters from I-80 or your can take Russell Blvd east out of Davis.

Let us know if you're interested.
