We will leave Davis by bike early Friday morning and ride the causeway through West Sacramento to the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail along the American River to a DBC provided lunch at Beal's Point on Folsom Lake. After lunch we'll drop down to Auburn-Folsom Road on our way the Lincoln Highway, old town Auburn and Ikeda's. Then, it's under I-80 to Placer Hills Road, Dogbar Road and La Barr Meadows Road to Grass Valley and, the Nevada City Highway to our destination, the Outside Inn in old town Nevada City. The total distance is about 100 miles.

Saturday is open for relaxing, browsing around town, riding in the local area, etc. Saturday evening we'll have a DBC provided salad and spaghetti feed.

Sunday morning we'll reverse the route back to Davis. Our return on Sunday follows the route in reverse with lunch at Beal's Point. The DBC will also provide snacks/water, etc in the SAG vehicle.

While the SAG will be available to riders, please be prepared to ride the 100 mile route as space in the SAG will be very limited and availability of the SAG will also be limited.
