Depart Time: 9:15 am Mileage: 50
Meeting Place: Meet to carpool from the Gardnerville Grocery Outlet parking lot at 7:45. Head south. On US395 at CA108, east side of 395, there is a god foresaken Caltrans station; meet there at 9am: park off the highway if possible, at the entrance to the CalTrans station, just outside the gate. Let's roll at 9:15.
Description: This ride has spectacular scenery and about 7,100 feet of climbing, some of it quite steep. Ride CA108 from US35, up and over Sonora Pass at 9600 ft elevation, down to Dardanelles Resort at about 5000 feet, and return. Dardanelles Resort has a convenience store for Gatorade and Fritos and running water. Bring a bike with good brakes and plenty of water. Note that riding from the meeting place to the top of Sonora and turning around, roughly 25 miles total, is a very respectable, tough, steep ride, so consider joining us for an east-side-only ride if the whole thing sounds like too much. Last year about half the group turned around at the top, ideally that would happen again so everyone’s got someone to ride back with. We'll have cold drinks and snacks at the end. The group usually stops at Walker Burger on the way back home. To see the profile of the ride, here’s the metric-century version:

Meeting Place: Carpool from the Gardnerville Grocery Outlet parking lot a little before 8am. On US395 at CA108 is a god foresaken Caltrans station; meet there at 9am. If CalTrans station gate is closed, then park on the east side of the highway in front of the Cal Trans yard.
Description: This ride has spectacular scenery and about 7,100 feet of climbing, some of it quite steep. Ride CA108 from US35, up and over Sonora Pass at 9600 ft elevation, down to Dardanelles Resort at about 5000 feet, and return. Dardanelles Resort has a convenience store for Gatorade and Fritos and running water. Bring a bike with good brakes and plenty of water. We'll have cold drinks and snacks at the end. Note that riding from the meeting place to the top of Sonora and turning around, roughly 25 miles total, is a very respectable, tough, steep ride, so consider joining us for an east-side-only ride if the whole enchilada sounds like too much.

Description: Sorry for the date change (now 7/23 instead of 7/24) and overlap with the Sonora Pass road ride but I want to race in the Kirkwood Sierra Cup on Sunday. All other ride details for this first Epic ride stay the same. :-) This will be the first ride (Epic I) in the 7-part "Summer Epic MTB Series" set up to give AACC mountain bike riders exposure to some of the most beautiful mountain bike trails in the South Lake Tahoe area. Come out and join the rides! The Flume Trail is one of Tahoe's most famous and beautiful rides with spectacular views. This first ride will be geared toward beginner and intermediate riders though advanced riders are encouraged to join too. There are multiple options after the initial 4-5 miles (one way) which consists of smooth fire road and wide single track with very little technical climbing or descending (with one short exception at the outlet of Marlette Lake which can be walked). We will ride the Flume Trail to Tunnel Creek Road and then decide how to proceed based on group preference. The main ride to Tunnel Creek Road will be an out-and-back format with options to turn around for those who would prefer. This will be an AACC weekend ride so drinks and snacks will be provided at the end. Rain and/or threatened thunderstorm activity will cancel the ride.

Type of Ride: mountain Pace: Medium Terrain: Hard
Depart Time: 4:00 Mileage: 15-20
Meeting Place: Have evening obligation so have to start at 4:00. Will wait at Big Meadow Trailhead at 5:00 before continuing remainder of loop if anyone who can't make it at 4:00 wants to join. Parking lot at the Grass Lake TRT spur trail on Highway 89 - From the Carson Valley, take 88 South to Pickett's Junction and take 89 toward Tahoe. As you crest over Luther Pass, take 89 about 1.6 miles Northwest past Luther Pass and park on the right (North) side of the road at the TRT trailhead. If you start heading downhill, you've gone too far. From Meyers, take 89 South and climb past the Big Meadow Trailhead a couple of miles until you come to the flat area of meadow and Grass Lake. As you crest up into the flat area of the highway, look to park on the left at the TRT trailhead.
Description: This will be a slightly longer variation of last weeks fun but challenging Big Meadow/Scott Lake loop. We will ascend the TRT spur trail from Grass Lake to the TRT and go right and climb to the first flat section (above Saxon Creek but not all the way to Toad's). We'll then turn around and take the TRT back down all the way to the Big Meadow Trailhead (yeehaw!), cross 89, climb to Scott Lake, take "Super Thrasher" across to 89, and then return the 1.6 miles of boringly flat highway to the cars. This is a very technical ride with a lot of granite steps, tight technical features, and climbing. I will be "scooting" at a Death Ride training pace with only a quick stop here or there so I plan on having a little coffee and a few carbs beforehand..and bringing lots of water. :-)

Description: Changed location of meeting place and ride direction: Riding the TRT from Big Meadow Trailhead to Big Meadow, then the spur up to Scott Lake, then across "Super Thrasher" to Luther Pass, then left on 89 down to the TRT connector from Grass Lake, take a right and head back up to the TRT again and then left and back down to the Big Meadow Trailhead to finish the loop. This is a beautiful and scenic route but it has a number of fun (for some!)but challenging rocky technical sections that can be walked too. We'll be keeping a "spunky" Jennie's term!) pace to get done and still have some daylight for reserve. We may hit a little snow on the West side of Waterhouse Peak.

The return downhill requires solid handling skills and good brakes. Although I am classifying this as a "medium" climb since the overall grade isn't too steep (~8%) , there are a number of short and challenging sections of over 30%, especially near the middle. The initial climb is an out-and-back so anyone can turn around during the initial climb and head back if they'd like to.

I plan on taking the Eagle Ridge Loop spur on the way back which has a number of sharp switchbacks and steep drop-offs. The initial climb is an out-and-back so anyone can turn around during the initial climb and head back if they'd like to.

Meeting Place: Truckee Bagel Co/Raley's parking lot in South Reno. (Wedge Parkway off of Mt Rose Hwy)
Description: This is a loop I have wanted to ride for a while. The majority of the route is pavement, though some amount of dirt exists. Probably best ridden with a cyclocross bike, though larger tires on a road bike may be functional as well. Starting from the south end of Reno, we will pick our way through town out to Verdi. Out of Verdi, we will proceed on Henness Pass Rd out to Boca Reservoir. Crossing under Hwy 80, the route will proceed along Glenshire Dr to Truckee. From here, the loop is closed by riding along the north end of Tahoe over Mt Rose Hwy. Rough mileage is below. This is a semi-exploratory ride, so I cannot comment on the condition of the dirt on Henness Pass Rd at the present time. To combat this, I generally bring an extra $10 for food and mountain biking shoes. As this is a weekend ride, I will bring an ample supply of Perpetuum and money for a snack stop. Hwy 580 S. Reno to Dog Valley Rd. - 30 miles Dog Valley to Hwy 80 Truckee- 25 miles Hwy 80 Truckee to Hwy 580 S. Reno - 40 miles

(The newsletter had a different carpool meeting place, but it will be overrun with Carson Valley Days festivities this weekend).
Description: Sonora is one of the most scenic passes around, and riding both sides nets you about 7100 feet of climbing, much of it steep, some of it crazy steep. Water and food should be available in Dardenelles (the turn around point). If you’re only up for one side, turning around at the top makes a very respectable ride. I’ll have snacks and drinks for afterward. Please drop me a line if you think you’ll likely go, so I have an idea of who to expect. If you don’t drop me a line, come anyway. See the club website under “Road Bike Routes” -> “395 South” for more route details.

Meeting Place: Meeting at Stodick Park in Gardnerville at 10:00 to give the day time to warm up.
Description: I will be out of town on Saturday, so I will miss the rides that Robert and Mel posted on the 25th. What better to do than put in another ride for Sunday? With the lack of snow, it seems like the Pinenuts may be in favorable shape for a cyclocross/MTB style ride out Sunrise Pass road. This is a dirt road that leaves East Valley road and heads east through the Pinenuts, eventually arriving at Smith Valley and Artesia Lake. I will ride from Stodick to East Valley, then out Sunrise Pass. Return route will be the same thing in reverse. It is doubtful that I will muscle all the way over to Smith Valley as there are a couple of big climbs on the way over.
