OK, none of this riding my age in miles, maybe kilometers. This is really my Wild Chicken ride in disguise with a rest stop at the Starbucks in downtown Loomis off of Horseshoe Bar Rd. There are three routes with grades of D33/C-37/C41 and total climbing of 1,100, 1,450 and 1,700 ft, respectively. Since the longest route is closest to my age in kilometers, I will probably sweep that route, but no guarantees. As the name of the ride says - it’s my birthday and I’ll ride if I want to. ;-)
