FFS RIDE: MINES ROAD C/2.5/43; D/3/59

  • Sat, October 16, 2021
  • 9:15 AM
  • Livermore, CA

NOTE - Starting with this ride all FFS rides will meet at 9:15 am!

If you are not familiar with Mines Road, imagine a route profile in the shape of a barbell: A hill at each end and a beautiful flat road that follows the meanders of a creek, in the middle section. After a 5 mile warm up (3 turns to connect Livermore Park to Mines Road), the route climbs for 2.5 miles, followed by another 2.5 miles of fun rollers and an easy descent to the flat section. The D route turns around at the “Junction”, a sandwich place that caters to cyclists and motorcyclists. Protein bars, Endurolytes and gel feature on one of the shelves. The C ride turns around earlier, at the county line, so bring ENOUGH WATER AND SNACKS to last 40 miles. No lunch stop on the C ride, but riders will gather after the ride at Round Table Pizza (4098 East Ave, Livermore) for lunch/drinks. Rain cancels. Online route sheets/maps/GPS.
