    I'll be leading the 50 mile B Ride and Marilyn will be leading the 25 mile C ride.

    Start Time: 8:00 am
    Place: Stouffer Park, 960 Stouffer Street, Ripon

    B Ride
    Distance: 50 miles
    Pace: 15+ mph average speed

    C Ride
    Distance: 25 miles
    Pace: Determined by group

    The B ride is an enjoyable 50 mile route with lots of turns. Most of the route is on well maintained roads. We have multiple regroups so that no one gets lost.

    AM
                                 

    Ride Details: This is one of our most popular rides. If you are directionally challenged, this is your ride.
    Distance:   33, 43 or 50 miles, moderate to hard climbing

    Turn by turn:   Go South on Rogers Rd
                                 Right on Sperry Rd, cross under Freeway (I-5)
                                 Right on Del Puerto Canyon Rd
       
                                 If you get tired, turn around and head back


    The ride to DPC Recreational Vehicle Park just past Frank Raines Parks and on the right is 17 miles out and then 17 miles back. It’s mostly uphill on the way to the park, and mostly downhill back.

    Past the park, the climbing become more intense.  A little further up the road is the “Wall”, a term used to describe  a mile and a half long climb that will take a moderate to strong rider 16 to 22 minutes to climb. It is a definite challenge that you will want to give yourself "Kudos" for at the County Line.  This is your 43 mile option.

    The descent from the county line back down into the canyon should be done with caution. It is a steep descent and the road  has rough spots. Holding on to the handlebars firmly is highly recommended.

    You are advised to use both hands on the handlebars all the way down. Control your speed with your brakes or you’ll find yourself approaching 40 miles per hour really quick.

    From the county line at the top of the canyon to the “junction” is a smooth downhill, across several cattle guards which will add about 7 miles to your total mileage for the day.

    If you made it to the top, you will likely be encouraged by the group to go to the junction.
       
    The return ride to Patterson can be a fast and thrilling ride, if you have some “legs” left after the climb. You’ll need to save a little bit for the last three miles, as you will get to do just a little more climbing before getting back to the start.

    Ride Details: This is one of our most popular rides. If you are directionally challenged, this is your ride.
    Distance:   33, 43 or 50 miles, moderate to hard climbing

    Turn by turn:   Go South on Rogers Rd
                                 Right on Sperry Rd, cross under Freeway (I-5)
                                 Right on Del Puerto Canyon Rd
       
                                 If you get tired, turn around and head back


    The ride to DPC Recreational Vehicle Park just past Frank Raines Parks and on the right is 17 miles out and then 17 miles back. It’s mostly uphill on the way to the park, and mostly downhill back.

    Past the park, the climbing become more intense.  A little further up the road is the “Wall”, a term used to describe  a mile and a half long climb that will take a moderate to strong rider 16 to 22 minutes to climb. It is a definite challenge that you will want to give yourself "Kudos" for at the County Line.  This is your 43 mile option.

    The descent from the county line back down into the canyon should be done with caution. It is a steep descent and the road  has rough spots. Holding on to the handlebars firmly is highly recommended.

    You are advised to use both hands on the handlebars all the way down. Control your speed with your brakes or you’ll find yourself approaching 40 miles per hour really quick.

    From the county line at the top of the canyon to the “junction” is a smooth downhill, across several cattle guards which will add about 7 miles to your total mileage for the day.

    If you made it to the top, you will likely be encouraged by the group to go to the junction.
       
    The return ride to Patterson can be a fast and thrilling ride, if you have some “legs” left after the climb. You’ll need to save a little bit for the last three miles, as you will get to do just a little more climbing before getting back to the start.
