Calaveras is open again - yay!  Let's go ride it!  We'll do a similar route to the Primavera 100K, except we'll start at Fremont BART instead of Mission High School: (I'll bring modified versions of the route with the Fremont BART station as the start/finish) Please bring snacks and food because there will be very few opportunities to buy anything within the first half of the ride.  This ride is roughly 63 miles (need to reroute to get exact mileage with the new start and end point) and 4000 feet of climbing.  Hope to see you!
