Eastern Sierra Escape 2018

September 1-16

Our popular Eastern Sierra tour is scheduled again this September. These are club rides open to anyone. We are not a tour company. There are no fees. Join us for all or part of this tour. This year we start in Mammoth. The climbs are described in The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) by John Summerson. We will offer shorter options with less climbing on some days. All routes are out-and-back so you can do the climbs at your own speed. Here’s the schedule:
