Rides around FresnoSantaCruz

Just found out yesterday that I will be spending Monday - Wednesday in Fresno. What about possible 20 - 40 mile routes, I prefer low traffic roads (don't we all?!?). I know it's scheduled to be hot.

Lots of good rides in the area. First, the North end of town lends itself to better parking and riding.

So, Millerton Store - Start at intersection of Copper/Willow, head east on copper, left on Auberry road, first store is Millerton. This spot is a good launch pad for longer rides or a loop back.

The loop back, each just turn around and head back or take millerton road (left turn at store) goes by Millerton lake turns into Friant road. You will come to Willow mke left, back to start point.

Next little longer, Stay on Auberry road make nice little climb, first road on right is "old Millerton Road" mostly rollers but their are two small climbs. This road will come to a stop sign, intersection of Hwy 168 & Millerton raod. Turn around head back to start, you just did ~45 miles.

Feel free to email me off line and can give you more routes or hook you up with two different club rides on Tuesday evening. We almost always have a evening breeze so it is not as hot as the temp needle reads.
