Thumbs up BILL'S BIRTHDAY RIDE. Sept 20, 2020

Edit: One Week to Go.

I did the test ride. After more than 20 years of going over Tioga Pass, Covid has made my normal birthday ride all but impossible. The old ride was a 360-mile round trip. This year we will only ride 220 miles from Starbucks in Stockton and back. But we are riding Maps links are below. There are a few spots with lose asphalt and one spot with light sand from an aggregate plant. Both are on smaller roads and we will not be going that fast there. Just want everyone to be aware. Hwy's 132, 49, and 140 are in good shape and fun. There will be two spots for lunch in Mariposa next to each other. Happy Burger and The 1850 Restaurant. 1850 a little more upscale both good and both have outdoor dining.

It is that time again, I am turning 70 and time for my birthday ride. Because it is 2020 a really Fucked Up year we will not be going over Tioga Pass. You need a pass just to ride across, so I am planning a shorter lower elevation ride. Back roads up to Hwy 49 and then south through the "Little Dragon" lunch TBD somewhere in Mariposa. Return on more back roads. The round trip will only be around 250 miles. May be a short goat road or two. We will be leaving later so anyone from out of town does not have to get up a 0-dark-30.
