Placer Valley Announces Cycling Event
14 May, 2015
The 14th Annual Lincoln Volunteer Center Benefit Bicycle Event (the Tour De Lincoln) is on May 16. The event has rides for the novice rider to the Lance Armstrong wannabe.
The Tour offers four courses: The Pleasure Cruise (10 miles), The Rolling Hills (20 miles), The Country Climb (40 miles) and the Metric Century (63 miles). All rides start at 8 a.m.
The Pleasure Cruise will roll out of McBean Park and pass through the cottonwood trees that line the banks of the Auburn Ravine. The course consists almost completely of Class 2 bike lanes, and rolls along a section of the beautiful Lincoln Hills Golf Course.
The Rolling Hills is a shorter version of the Country Climb with beautiful scenery and less vertical gain.
The Country Climb is a beautiful ride winding through the rolling hills and countryside between Lincoln and Auburn. This route has beautiful valley views, challenging climbs (1400′ vertical gain), and passes by several horse ranches. The Metric Century route is more of the same beautiful countryside, but with 3800′ of vertical gain. See the Elevation Maps page for elevation information about these two routes.
