is scheduled to attempt to provide for all abilities and interests.
Riders should review this schedule carefully and select those
rides that fall within their capability... The schedule is available
to interested cyclists at Sacramento area bike shops and is

Message from the Editor
Laurel Beck

appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth
having, just mount a bicycle and go out for
a spin down the road, without thought on
anything but the ride you are taking. “
Sizes available: Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large, and
plus sizes (XXL and XXXL). Men and women sizes available. Jersey fit for both sexes is club cut.
Cash or Check Only, No Credit Cards.
“NO SWEEP” RIDES
“No Sweep” rides designated by this symbol tell
potential riders that they need to be self-sufficient.
No one will be following behind to look out for them should they
need assistance. It tells them that they shouldn’t consider this
ride unless they would probably do it on their own or with a
friend. Basically it’s a ride for experienced riders.
However, ride leaders are encouraged to arrange regroup
points on the route to allow riders to stay together. Riders on
“No Sweep” riders are encouraged to ride together and check
with stopped riders to see if they need assistance. Ride leaders
will still check to make sure everyone returns safely.

RIDE GRADING CODE
THREE FACTORS make up the ease or difficulty of a ride –
not counting such chance factors as traffic, road conditions,
and weather. These factors are important considerations for
riders when selecting rides in which to participate. No rider will
knowingly be left behind alone. However, riders should NOT
sign up for rides beyond their ability. “Biting off more than you
can chew” can result in discouragement or sore muscles, and
invites accidents.
•
Terrain Elevation - Represented by an alpha letter
A - Steep
- Mostly steep grades: strong riders only
B - Steep/Moderate- Some relief from steep grades
C - Moderate
- Hilly; a challenge for the average rider
D - Moderate/Easy - Rolling hills, a challenge for beginners
E - Easy
- Some gentle grades, but no problems
F - Flat
- If any route is really flat
•
•
Distance - Represented by the actual number of miles
Pace - Will range in ‘miles per hour’ between about 12
mph on easy short distance rides to 20+ mph on hard
long distance rides. Generally, the pace increases as the
difficulty (steepness and distance) of the ride increases.
Riders tend to increase their pace as they gain experience, fitness, and are challenged by difficulty. Beginners
and novices are strongly advised to select easy and short
distance rides to start with, and progress up the grading
scale with experience and capability.

transportation – to have many more everyday trips made by
bike. We want more places like the beautiful American River
Parkway bike trail. Even more, we want you and everyone in
your family to be able to go anywhere by bike – without fear
or danger.
