    Took a little ride yesterday with a buddy and fellow ADV rider, 74C5, to do seven passes in one day. It turned out to be a bit of an encouragement ride for those training for The Death Ride on July 10th. We made sure to give a big wave to everyone struggling up those hills under human power. :eek1

    The Seven Passes were Tioga on Hwy 120, Sonora on Hwy 108, Ebbets on Hwy 4, Monitor on Hwy 89, Carson on Hwy 88, Luther on Hwy 89 and Echo Summit on Hwy 50 (actually, the real one on the Lincoln Highway). We started and finished at Safeway at Francisco and Green Valley in El Dorado Hills.

    This is a hard one to see the signs because they're parallel to the roadway....

    (I have a .gpx file to upload of the track, but keep getting upload errors. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated.)

    If my track would load, you'd see. Hwy 120 cuts through Yosemite, and was the southern extent, with Hwy 50 running from Tahoe back to home. Great roads, you should definitely come on up.

    I was station at Beale AFB 91 to 94 and again 02 to 05, liked the area in the mountains but i didn't ride then so i missed out on a lot, we went to hell hole reservoir once in 93 and it was a bit remote and quiet:D . I've really been wanting to get back up there I've just tackled a few other long rides this year, Yellowstone and Moab so i might be out of long ride this year.

    Damn you, Damn you to hell! I've been planning to do this for about three years, and since I live in Texas now, it hasn't happened! I've done all seven, and done as many as four of them in one day, but I also planned on getting Donner too!

    GREAT RIDE, Great accomplishment!

    Congratulations!

    We were feeling good and could have done Donner and Yuba, also, but the traffic along the west side of the lake would have made that last stretch a nightmare!

    Looking at a map, we got Devil's Gate Pass on 395, too. Didn't know about it, so we didn't stop.... :cry
