Ok folks, due my knee surgery screwing with the schedule, we're going to pick a different date that isn't likely to interfere with my recovery However, Tahoe will be insane that weekend and most likely consisting of either moon dust or kitty litter, so I'm going to suggest the Central Coast of California (not Central Valley--too flat).
My thoughts are Labor weekend of this year (helps with those with kiddos), and already gives those a day off:
Sept 2-5: Central California Coast (Santa Barbara or San Luis Obispo County). I'm sure it's not perfect for everyone, but it's easier for those in SoCal, and it's still relatively close for those of us in NorCal. Would this work for the folks in Sac though?
This keeps the options good for those with kiddos or SOs who aren't into mountain biking, as there is plenty to do nearby, like apple farms, beaches, and wine tasting.
Lemme know if this works, and I'll ask the SoCal locals if SLO or SB county is better riding for what we're doing.
