Where the Ride Begins
Take Hwy 70 if you're from Sacramento, San Francisco, or Reno. Hwy 36 is best if coming down from the north. All of these routes will connect to Hwy 89. Into Greenville you'll find the high school is on Hwy 89. If you're still lost, follow the old familiar smell of stinky athletic socks. The tables for sign-ups will be there, in front of the gym. Riders start from that parking lot
Both the metric and mile century begin in Greenville at the high school. 30 miles out in Genesee is our picturesque lunch stop and turn around for the metric ride. For the milers, fruit & drink stop is another 17 miles and 1,500 ft. higher up at Antelope Lake in the Plumas National Forest. Milers lunch stop is on return at Genesee spot. Juice and fruit stops are found in between.
The Metric ride is fast and flat, along rich pasture land and wooded stream. The Miler's climb up and around Antelope Lake is moderate (1,500 ft), before its return to the valley floor. Returning to Greenville, showers are to be had at the high school. Bring a towel.
Included with the fee is a free ride patch, lunch for all paid participants, a number for your bike, a lunch bracelet, a SAG wagon, juice stops, and a shower after the ride, at the school.
The ride will be staged rain or shine. No refunds. Sorry.
There will be a pasta dinner the night before the ride, at an additional price. Here is a list of local eateries:
