Eastern Sierra Escape 2019


September 9-23

The Eastern Sierra tour is scheduled again this September. Think about joining friends from Western Wheelers and ACTC who will gather in Mammoth Lakes, Bishop, and Lone Pine, CA for rides up the longest and steepest climbs in the World during two weeks in September.  Donna and Dick Matthews  and Muy Guy Neenan, himself will be co-leading rides, hikes, and happy hours in the high country. These are club rides open to anyone. We are not a tour company. There are no fees. Join us for all or part of this tour. The climbs are described in "The Complete Guide to Climbing" (by Bike) by John Summerson. There are short options with less climbing for every ride. All routes are out-and-back so you can do the climbs at your own speed. Every third day is reserved to relax, hike, or do a make-up ride.  Contact the ride leaders with questions: Guy Neenan: guyneenan@gmail.com  cell (408) 797-6857 and Donna and Dick Matthews(rmatthews1942@gmail.com)
