Eastern Sierra Escape 2018

September 1-18

The Eastern Sierra tour is scheduled again this September. These are club rides co-listed with WWBC and ACTC and are open to anyone. We are not a tour company. There are no fees. Join us for all or part of this tour. This year we start in Mammoth for the June Lakes and Devils Postpile rides (Note that Guy and Mindy will lead repeats of these two rides on September 17th and 18th). The climbs are described in The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) by John Summerson. We will offer shorter options with less climbing on some days. All routes are out-and-back so you can do the climbs at your own speed. Dick and Donna Matthews have previously led this tour, as well as Donny Axtell. This year Guy Neenan will be leading.  Please let Guy N. know which days you plan on joining the group:  guyneenan@gmail.com  cell (408) 797-6857.


Guy Shuman and Mindy Steiner will be attending (9/4 to 9/19) from WWBC so also feel free to contact them with questions at mindysteiner1@gmail.com or 650-714-9616.
