Blue Diamond loop (11/5/2016)

Date: Saturday, November 5
Meet time: 8:00 a.m.
Ride-out time: 8:30 a.m.
Meeting place: McGhie's, 4035 S. Fort Apache Rd. (map)
City: Las Vegas, Nevada
Rain policy: Rain cancels; make-up date is November 6
Pace: 2 - medium pace (10-12mph)
Terrain: 2 - rolling hills
Miles: 31

We'll do the loop out to Blue Diamond and back, this time in the direction with the more gradual but somewhat longer climb -- only 1,300 feet over 15 miles, so it's really not too bad at all. And after that, it's all downhill for the rest of the ride! Experienced riders who want a more robust ride can optionally add the Red Rock Canyon scenic loop for another 1,200 feet and 13 miles.

McGhie's won't be open early in the morning when we ride out, but park and meet in the back of the parking lot away from the main entrance. Look for the black pickup truck with all the ALC stuff! Several gas stations and mini-marts with toilets, food, and water are nearby.

You don't have to be registered for ALC 2017 to join us on our training rides! In fact, we hope that after you've ridden with us, you'll be motivated to join us for the main event from San Francisco to Los Angeles next June ... registration for ALC 2017 is still open.
