    I don't see a better place to post this for anyone who might be interested - @Mikie if you want to move it feel free.

    I can't make this, unfortunately - I'll be in Zion - but I'd love to. Looks like a great time. Maybe next year.

    Participants have three routes from which to choose.

    The Pint - 35 miles 2800' rest stop at 16 miles https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27986688

    All routes are low traffic with at least half of the distance on dirt/gravel. There will be rest stops at 15-20 mile intervals and SAG support.

    Start/Finish at Raymond Community Association Park
    35024 Rd 606, Raymond, CA 93653
    (SE corner of Rd 606 and Raymond Rd/Rd 600)

    Limited camping is available at the park for $10/night. No hookups.

    The Raymond area is rustic and rich with history -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond,_California

    The Raymond Museum and historical town site help tell the story Raymond's rich past. The Raymond Granite Quarry is in operation today, as are the historic Raymond General (Store) and Hills Pride Inn.
