Is it Fresno or Coarsegold? There are plenty of good places to ride. Here are some links, but feel free to e-mail me, too: douglassloan@yahoo.com

Cyclopath Fine Bicycles (best shop, IMO)

Tri-Sport Bicycles (only bike stuff, despite the name)

http://www.midcalracing.com/ (my wimpy site, just some links)

check out http://www.ccorc.com or the LBS in nearby Oakhurst. Lots of good MTB riding in the Bass Lake area.

There's also a good hilly century on October 5. http://www.grizzlycentury.org

Also, the owner of Tri-Sport lives in Yosemite Lakes, not far from Coarsegold. I'm sure he'd be glad to help you.

You should ride the Grizzly Century out of North Fork.

The Grizzly is very hilly, and partly runs about 2,000 feet above the San Joaquin River. Most of it is up in big pine trees, with perfectly clean, crisp air. The climbs are not really steep, but there are a ton of them. What's nice about this one is that it's run in an area where you probably never would do an unsupported century, because there are no services anywhere for the first 80 miles. It's on the definitely do list.

Check out this site if you're into MTB. It's a shop in Oakhurst (about 5 miles from Coarsegold).
