The Mountain Goats are doing the 3rd annual Geysers Loop Clockwise from Geyserville starting at the Chamber of Commerce parking lot.
Remember if you can't be on time, be early, and if you can't do either of these you will have to catch up!
We will have a SAG on this ride like in the past. Last year, we had about 12 folks join us on this ride that hadn't done it before and they all were able to make the loop. So once again this isn't a race but a very scenic ride with some amazing views. Note that road conditions are variable, including sections of gravel and numerous potholes. Please be cautious, especially on descents. This is a ride and not a race!
Here are some hills that you will want practice on before you do this ride. Cavedale, Trinity, Los Alamos, Sonoma Mtn, Lichau, Coleman Valley, Fort Ross Rd, Pine Flat, Some out and back on the first climb or two of the Geysers, Rockpile, Sweet Water, and Pine Mtn. Any of these will give your legs a good workout to help you get ready for the Geysers Loop. In order to give yourself a chance of completing this ride you really need to be doing some rides of 40 miles with 2800 to 3500' of climbing.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the leader: Dennis Prior 484-4452
