Monday, October 1st Ride - Tuolumne City to Fremont's Fort - KSU 9:15am

This ride starts at the Jack-In-The-Box (13751 Mono Way, East Sonora) where you can get breakfast (if you arrive early enough), gas(Mobil across the street), and a picnic lunch (Subway is right next door).  KSU at 9:15am so plan on arriving by 8:45am if you need to take on supplies.  The ride heads out through Tuolumne City into the Sanislaus National Forest past Cherry Lake (outhouse stop) over to Hetch-Hetchy Reserovir (bring your geezer pass - or money - or hang out in Mather for us to return) for a picnic lunch. Thereafter we head over the Little Dragon to Fremont's Fort (ride ends around 2:30pm).  If you are pressed for time you can actually be out of the forest on Route 120 in about 3 hours.  This is not so much of a group ride as a ride-at-your-pace ride; with those at the front spending more time looking at the road with those at the back looking at the scenery  - with regrouping points at Cherry Lake and Hetch-Hetchy (no tail rider).  Here is the route link ( https://goo.gl/pE5XPH ) but best just to follow the signage to Cherry Lake as google gets confused inside the forest.  All forest roads traveled will be paved (no dirt roads), 1.5 to 2 lanes wide, in decent condition, with very light travel this time of year (expect moving objects to include cars, trucks, deer, cattle,  logging vehicles, boat trailers, and campers).   Rain or Shine event - but weather is expected as dry with start of ride in the mid-50s and rising to the mid-70s.  No need to RSVP but contact me if you wish via email (mchughjerry@gmail.com) or cell (510-326-6883, text best).  Hope to see you!  Jerry McHugh
