Fall Colors Ride 2016

Postby ken » Sun Oct 16, 2016 12:50 pm

Well, time has sneaked up on me, and now it looks like the best time to do this is next weekend. I know that's short notice, but at this late time in the year, that's probably our best shot at good weather.
The ride I'm planning is basically the one we tried in 2013, but got snowed out half way through it.
It goes up over Mount Rose and through Virginia City, over Kingsbury Grade, and on to Luther and Carson passes.

Two thoughts to kick around:

One: let's try doing it on Saturday this time. That probably fits more people's schedules, so let's try it.

Two: instead of starting in Grass Valley, I'm looking at the possibility of meeting in Auburn at Mom's Kitchen.
That adds about 35 minutes to the ride, compared to the Grass Valley start, but it's closer in for most of us.

How many people would be in favor of this idea?

That was a helluva ride. Snow on the peaks, colors were amazing, the route rocked. Thanks Cpt. Ken for another brilliant ride! You couch potatoes missed a good one.
