Wednesday Ride-Apple Hill Wed, May 5, 8:30am
Come join me for a nice spring ride around Apple Hill. The weather looks to be cooperative as it will be hot in the valley and a little cooler up the hill. Apple Hill is not open so hoping for low traffic. If anyone wants to do Snows road go for it. I’m out.
Abel’s will not be open but we can head to Boa’s for pie post ride

Second Saturday Enduro-Moscovite/Napa Sat, May 8, 9:00am
The meet location is Muskowite Corner otherwise known as the intersection of Highways 128 & 121. Park near the abandoned gas station- there is no water or sanitation at the start point. Google says travel time is 90 minutes from Auburn- please carpool if you can.
This ride will not be swept but there will be periodic re-groups. There are multiple opportunities for refreshment/relief along the way but you may want to bring along your own nourishment and 2 water bottles just in case. There are several bathrooms along the lake, a store on Chiles/Pope Valley Road, a park and stores in Angwin (note- Angwin is largely Adventist so much is closed on Saturday).

Members...Summer Camp will be in Mt. Shasta City this coming year! We will be based at the Mt. Shasta KOA The facility has RV camping (both full hookups and water/elec sites), tent camping, and kamping kabins. The closest motel to the KOA (2 blocks away) is the Cold Creek Inn.
Plan on three days of cycling and at least one hike. Our hilly cycling routes will be mostly the Mt. Shasta Super Century 135 miler spread across three days. Somewhat flatter routes also available. The hike is TBD.
Click here for a sneak preview of the routes under consideration. There is no need to RSVP at this time...in mid May I'll ask for your RSVP (and will keep track a different way).
And of course there is much more to do in Mt. Shasta than ride a bike, and I'll also be detailing some of those activities in future emails.
Mark your calendars, make your reservations, and stay tuned!
