Yesterday, a local group called FATRAC (Folsom Auburn Trail Riders Action Coalition)
put on a ride on the awesome South Yuba River trail. We rode part of this IMBA Epic
by riding the Rim trail and the South Yuba River. There were six of us, two on single speeds and the rest of us wimps on geared bikes. It was a little warm, but we made do by riding through the pine trees for shade and swimming the beautiful and ultra clear South Yuba River.
How about some pics then?
Here's our group:
The ride from the day use area starts with a nice three mile or so fire road climb:
