Still looking for a replacement for the former Wild Chicken coffee house in downtown Loomis. Starbucks off of Horseshoe Bar Rd. will have to do for now. Total climbing is 1,100 , 1,450 and 1,700 ft on the short, intermediate and long routes, respectively. There are several points where you can switch between routes to add or avoid hills depending on weather and your condition.. Those factors will also determine which route the ride leader will sweep.

We‘ll take a chance and try riding the long return on the North side of Lake Natoma, as I understand that it has reopened for travel.

Today we‘ll be heading out to Country Waffles on Sunrise Blvd in Citrus Heights.

I‘ll be sweeping the long route:
34.9 *Country Waffle Sunrise-3A (with Winding Way bridge detour)
https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31114119.

A Leisure route is also offered but will be unswept unless someone volunteers:
25.6 *Country Waffle Sunrise-1A
https://ridewithgps.com/routes/20788045.


On the long route, most of the original Winding Way stretch is utilized because the bridge is fairly close to Winding Way‘s junction with Fair Oaks Blvd; and the detour adds just one extra mile via scenic Chicago Ave., Sunset Ave., and back to Fair Oaks Blvd.

There‘s a 20% chance of rain though, per this morning‘s (Monday) forecast, so keep your fingers crossed!
