What started out as a passing comment from Bobby became an idea that was cemented into plans over post ride beers on our annual New Year's big bike ride. And now we're here,damn it. The plan is for a few of us the take street legal bikes with less than 125cc from a little town outside of Placerville, Ca up to the legendary Rubicon Trail, through the 22 miles of rocky hell then on to Lake Tahoe and return through Truckee and Soda Springs Rd before finishing at our starting point. 3 days, 2 nights and 180 miles. I even made us a little flyer to add to the comedic value of the trip. 6 days left until take off! But first, let's start at the beginning.
