For HRU this week, let's go do one of my favorites, the Flintstone House and the Carolands Mansion. There are a few crazy steep, but also quite short hills in this route, however, all the crazy stuff can be easily bypassed, should one be so inclined.
This is a social-paced C+/D ride (we are after all the Wednesday Social Climbers) with regroups, although faster riders are encouraged to form a D+/E group.
Note that we are moving back to a unified start. Both the D/E HRU Speedsters and the C+/D Social Climbers will be leaving at 9AM, although the faster group is encouraged to ride off the front, should they be so inclined.
Start: Shoup Park. Meet at 8:45, rolling at 9 AM
60 miles and 5100' of elevation gain.
Lunch: Around mile 35, we'll hit the Safeway at the Crystal Springs shopping center on Polhemus. There is also a Starbucks and a Bakery. The next water and bathrooms will be about 5 miles away at Crestview Park.
