Any Sacramento area riders out there? Can anyone advise a good route from Old Sacramento to Auburn, CA?
I know it's only about 40 miles but it ends a long day riding from the Bay Area so my day will be 140 miles...about 9 hours. I am planning to ride Nov 22 and it gets dark at 5pm so I'm looking for a quick and efficient route through Sacramento. Not particularly interested in the scenic American River trail, although it's very nice, it meanders too much and is slower than I would like.
Seems to me Folsom Blvd to pick up Auburn-Folsom Rd is a straight shot but what about riding conditions? Anyone with a better idea?
Thanks in advance for your input.
