« on: October 06, 2016, 10:34:41 pm »
Tim Hardee has put together another great day ride for Northern CA COGgers.

Meet for breakfast at 8:30AM at Sweet Peas in Auburn, then kickstands up at 9:30AM for a loop through the Sierra foothills towards Bullards Bar Reservoir.

This ride will be about 130 miles and probably under 3 hours of actual ride time and will flow through the sweeps and twists of California's scenic foothills.

What a fantastic ride!

First thing, Thanks to Tim Hardee and Buddy Scherr for planning, promoting and leading the Bullards Bar Loop ride. You guys are awesome.

Everyone enjoyed the tasty (and big) breakfast at Sweet Peas.

Then 8 bikes with 9 riders headed out into the foothills and west slope of the Sierras. It was a perfect mix of country and mountain roads. Everyone got to ride a little of their favorite type of road.

Made a couple of stops for sight seeing and talking,  Yuba River South State Park and Bullards Bar Reservoir Dam.

The ride wrapped up about 1:30PM and we all headed our separate ways.

Great day, awesome folks, perfect weather and fun roads.

You should join us next time!
