Full club meeting as Zoom meeting
Tom Miner (916-204-8021) Meet at 9:15; ride at 9:30. Park near the diner; restrooms available. We’ll start with a 5 mile out & back on the Dry Creek Bike Trail, then north on the Sacramento Northern Bike Trail and continue on country roads to the Placer county line. On our way back to the Creekside Diner for a brunch break (at about mile 15), we‘ll stop every once in a while to see the quilt blocks of the Underground Railroad Quilt Block Trail. Since our cars are next to the diner, you may leave leftovers or unwanted clothes in your car, or even go home if you wish. Resuming our ride, we’ll follow the bike trail south to Robla and a Cambodian Buddhist Temple before heading back to the cars. 20 miles RT; flat terrain. The diner has agreed to set up a table outside for us, and they‘ll accept separate checks.
DFW Parking for Phantom Falls Loop Trail, approx. 7 Miles north of Oroville.
Come join the +/- 7 mile,1,000 ft. elevation gain Phantom Falls Loop hike. Jim Stratton will co-lead this moderate to difficult hike which will take approx. 6 hours. Several 49ers have done this hike recently and said the wildflowers were beautiful. Because the weather is getting hotter, can‘t say if we will see a lot of flowers next week. Dogs are allowed on leash. Each person needs to have a land use pass with them, and can be purchased for $4.89 on-line at the CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, or phone 800-565-1458. Be sure to wear sturdy, close-toe footwear. Bring lots of water, sack lunch, walking sticks, sunscreen, and hat.
Meet and park 9:15 am, launch 9:30 am, 11475 Green Bluffs Court, Gold River for a ride down the Folsom Canal bike trail to Douglas Rd before heading back through Rancho Cordova on some road/bike trails to breakfast at Brookfields before returning to Green Bluffs Court. Ride: about 20 miles. Please register so I‘ll know how many to make breakfast reservations for.
We will hop on Amtrak at Davis with our bikes, and depart at the Suisun/Fairfield station. From there we will ride the back county roads admiring beautiful green hills and wildflowers before stopping for lunch in Winters at a park. There are places next to the park to purchase food, or pack a lunch. After lunch, we will continue our journey over the back county roads to Davis. Approximate distance is 40 miles. This will be a leisurely paced riding at 12-15 MPH. More detailed information about the ride will be sent to riders who register for this event. A SAG vehicle will be available on this ride.
