Wednesday Night Race Rides

What are Wednesday Night Race Rides?

Race Rides run Wednesday, March 12th, 2014 until September 24, 2014

These Race Rides are an opportunity for cyclists to compare their fitness and speed with fellow cyclists. Here in Folsom and the surrounding area, we're blessed with low-traffic roads that are ideal for longer, fast-paced race rides. Cyclists can try out their road bikes and have fun in a friendly competition. In 2014, Folsom Bike will be running this event every WEDNESDAY night starting March 12th. How great is that! There are no fees, no registration, no waivers, and no lawyers. Ride at your own risk!  This is a heart-pumping race ride for 35 miles among friendly cyclists for FUN. If you are in the area, go try out your road competition skills. It’s a blast!

Details:
Course is a 35 miles lap on low traffic roads around the Folsom/Granite Bay area. There are 4 sprints points and 2 regrouping stops.
