Zon from MTBR had a vision, his vision was to circumnavigate Folsom Lake on Mountain Bike trails. This ride was the result of Zon’s Vision, I’m glad I was able to be a part of this ride for a lot of reasons. The ride was almost exactly 50 miles long, which is by a long shot a personal distance record for me. I have ridden 50 miles on a road ride before… but that doesn’t count. The total effort involved in this ride was many times that required on the road ride.
This ride had some unique challenges as well, primarily the fact that short of riding clear to Auburn there is no easy way across the long dogleg section where the North Fork American River enters the lake. The solution to this was a unique one, Zon arranged to shuttle us by boat. Anyhow… check out the pictures and my impressions of the ride here.
