ALL Rides will be leaving from in front of the Starbucks at the Sacramento Convention Center.
It is at the Intersection of 13th Street and J Street
Here is a Google Map link so you know you are at the right place to start.
The other good clue you are at the correct place is you will see other cyclists getting ready to ride…probably on really cool bikes!
All rides will be a steady tempo of riding around 20-22 mph on the flatter terrain. If you have never been
to Sacramento before, well. . .it’s all flatter terrain! Many of us on the ride are exhibitors or media and
need to get back in order to make it to the show on time. This is not a “no-drop” ride, but we will do our
best to keep the group together (as we have for the past few years). The goal is to be back at the
Convention Center before 9 am. This gives us some time to get cleaned up, grab a bite to eat, and stand
around all day!
Boyd’s Pro Tip! The Starbucks opens at 6:30 am on Friday and 7 am on Saturday and Sunday. We are
planning on starting the rides at 7:10 am each day (sunrise is 7:15), so on Saturday and Sunday we don’t
have a ton of time for sipping our coffee.
Weather Disclaimer!! If it’s raining, snowing, or if there’s any chance of Sharknadoes then the ride will
be cancelled. The main priority is keeping the group safe and having fun, so we will adjust for weather.
Welcome to Sacramento! The show is opening later on Friday, so for those of you who aren’t frantically
setting up a booth we have a little extra time today. This will be the day of the longest ride. Plan on right
around two hours and we will make a big loop west of town. There’s no hills, no scenery, but at least we
