Wildflower-full April is a great time to get into the frontier spirit evoked by Mark Twain in his Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.
We are showing off the southwest end of our county and have included a TIME TRIAL. We are not changing the route this year because of the great feedback we had from the riders last year. Both rides will leave you hungry for that homemade BBQ at the finish in Feeney Park. All the climbing and zippy downhills will be there without the rigors of the rough roads of the first Mr. Frog ‘s Wild Rides. The long route will include a ride to New Melones Lake and one mile of gravel in the long ride that is perfectly rideable so one can pretend briefly to be a randonneur at the Paris Roubaix. Elevation gain is 4436 ft. for the 100K and 2461 ft. for the 50K ride. Winner of the time trial will be awarded a prize at the conclusion of the ride.
Come join us April 15th, 2017 for our springtime ride in the beautiful Sierra Foothills! Everyone from kids to grandparents are welcome to join in the fun whether riding or not. Spend Sunday wine tasting, hiking, enjoying the sights and history, shopping, or just relaxing. There will great food, live music, and much more.
PLEASE NOTE: This ride is meant for the safe enjoyment of our participants. Every participant should train for the challenges presented by that rider’s chosen route. Use of CPSC approved helmets is required. The California Vehicle Code must be followed, and courtesy to other riders and drivers is expected. Although these two routes are paved, except for one mile of gravel in the 100K ride–that is perfectly rideable, much of the traveling is on back roads that have undergone much spot patching, leaving irregularities and bumps. Potholes happen. Ride organizers and sponsors are not responsible for the condition of the pavement surface. Every rider should carry personal identification and spare tubes, a tire pump and a patch kit. Waivers must be signed on ride day.
