    Saturday, Sept 20: Spooner to Toad's Attack, Tahoe

    Join us on Saturday, September 20 for a blitzkrieg on the two sections of the Tahoe Rim Trail from Spooner Summit to Mr Toad's Wild Ride. This ride is a strong intermediate to advanced ride and every rider should know the basics about self-sufficient riding. The ride is 40+ miles with 5500+ feet of climbing at an average of 8500' elevation, topping out at 9850', so be prepared for the altitude.

    This ride will be a shakedown ride for 0gre's Mount Rose to Toads Challenge the following week so anyone interested in that should definitely do this route first.

    We'll meet up at the Spooner Summit parking lot at 8:30 am, riding by 9 am at the latest. Please bring plenty of food and water for this ride. There may be a spring halfway through the ride but it's not guaranteed.

    More to come regarding afterparty and whatnot. Stay tuned....

    Cheers,
    Kyle

    Don't forget the store at heavanley....

    Bring cash so you can make good use of the store 15 miles into the ride

    ice cream, gatorade, beer....

    Hey Kyle I'm in for sure. It will probably kill me but I just can not resist. Have you talked to Abe Nitro? He needs to do this ride.

    I think I'm in. A carpool would be greatly appreciated if anyone is passing through or near Stockton. If nothing else, maybe I can meet someone in Sacramento?

    I might be up for part of this. Maybe I could ride to the store & then turn around & go get a car? If the store's 15 miles in I'd get a 30 mile ride out of it.

    Would that help anything?

    Gary, that would actually be a huge help, but dont'cha want to do the whole ride? If you really don't, the Spooner to Kingsbury out-and-back is a great ride all by itself. And that would get one vehicle from the Spooner trailhead which is the biggest pain of the ride. Depending on how many cars and who rides with ya, it'd be awesome to get both cars over to Oneidas (bottom of Toads).

    Ditto on the killing me, but considering the realistic # of opportunities for me to ride Tahoe before Old Man Winter returns, well, it's a no brainer.

    I've spoken with Abe, he's hip to it, we just need to make solid plans.

    My big wheeled green machine should be up and rolling for this one.

    Problem is the hellish road climb from the store back up to the trailhead. Ugh. I'd do it with ya (the out and back), but I'm busy that day.

    Well he could certainly skip the road run to the store and turn around at the end of the TRT. Course that means missing the store stop.

    I am in!!

    I'm in for Steve's back from the brink of death/gummy retrieval ride.

    I have a prior commitment on the 28th, so it looks like I can't make Ogre's Challenge. But I'm still wanting to do Rose to Toads.

    Maybe I'll start from Rose @ 6:30 on the 20th.....then join you guys at Spooner summit @ 8:30.

    That's what I did a couple weeks ago. So what did I miss at the store?

    Would love join up for Punisher, but can't do it until October.

    The Store

    Only worth stopping at if you are continuing south on TRT. I Think it's a Kwik E Mart run by some guy named Apu. Anyway, it is a wonderful stop when doing the 42 miles starting at Dagget Pass....great place to get cold liquids, ice cream....maybe a squishy

    Indeed. the only reason I figures Gary might be interested in it is because it's a natural break in the ride where everyone chills and shoots the sh*t.

    I think riding over Freel Pass would be easier than that road ride back back up to the TRT

    Bump. Floating it to the top.

    Weather should be great for this ride. 60's at upper elevations. Good for some hard pedaling.

    Got some great IPAs to share at the bottom of Toads....

    Did you get hooked up with a ride for the 28th?

    Hey guys, I think he said he's in Davis, you Bay area guys roll right through there, can one of you hook him up?
