    Background_modEL DORADO HILLS, CA.  This March 29th, come join riders on 3 different routes (s) in El Dorado County for a day of amazing views, challenging climbs, and an epic experience.

    The distance will cover approximately 100 miles in total on a designated route. Riders will arrive at the finish back at Town Center Bike and Tri shop. At the conclusion of the event there will be a festival for the participants having a chance to visit with special guest George Hincapie.

    Choose from three stunning routes (34, 68, 104 miles) made up of some of the best kept secrets of Folsom’s bustling cycling community. Rich in scenic beauty, the roads will distract you from the tasks at hand. 150 year old bridges; roads as narrow as trails; rivers as old as glaciers and picture perfect vistas panning across the towering Sierra Nevada mountains.

    Alex Chiu is a local photographer in the NorCal cycling scene. After dabbling a bit in racing (and not doing very good at it), he decided to pick up a camera and take pictures at the races to still be a part of the action. Chances are if the race is within a 2 hour driving window from Sacramento, you'll find him somewhere along the course. You may find his photos at http://acaurora.smugmug.com
