Sikh Cycling Club Vaisakhi Ride: routes and ride day info

We’re looking forward to riding together in the Sikh Cycling Club’s Vaisakhi Ride this Saturday, April 24, starting and finishing at the Guru Maneyo Granth Gurdwara Sahib just east of Sacramento. Here is a summary of everything you need to know!

  • Ride Start/Finish: Guru Maneyo Granth Gurdwara Sahib, 6021 Walnut Avenue, Orangevale, CA 95662. Post-ride langar is being graciously provided by the Gurdwara.
  • Ardas & Group Photo: 8 AM
  • Ride Start: 8:30 AM

Club members have suggested that we raise funds for the Gurdwara with a goal of $500. We encourage you to donate towards this total ($25 or whatever you are able). We will collect donations ahead of the ride.

We have two ride groups that will ride different routes. Each group will have a ride leader. Please follow their guidance on the ride. You can download turn-by-turn directions and navigation files for your bike computers at the Strava route map links below:

The two routes start and finish on the same course. The shorter route bypasses some of the climbing and distance between the two rest stops where snacks and hydration will be provided:

  • Rest Stop 1: Blue Anchor Park, 3690 Taylor Rd, Loomis, CA 95650
  • Rest Stop 2: Denny’s Restaurant parking lot, 681 Newcastle Rd, Newcastle, CA 95658

PLEASE REMEMBER:

  • Take all COVID precautions including masking within 6 ft., social distancing and appropriate handwashing/sanitizing.
  • Bring the following items for safe cycling: Identification, medical identification, 2 water bottles, name/number of an emergency contact.
  • The routes involve riding on bike trails, city and country roads, and some roads with narrow/no shoulders. Please be conscious of practicing all safety measures and ride etiquette.
  • Your participation in this ride acknowledges that you are riding at your own risk and are responsible for your own safety. Your participation indemnifies organizers and volunteers of any liability or claims associated with this ride.

Feel free to Contact Us with any questions. See you on Saturday!
