Occasional cylist, looking to extend your distance rides? LSD ride is an option!

LSD riders string out along DeVries Road in Lodi winegrape country.

LSD group, prior to ride start at Bear Creek High School.
This group of LSD riders took a break at a Lodi bakery in fall, 2014.

The next LSD Ride (“long, slow distance ride”) will take place on Saturday, February 7  at 9 AM, starting and finishing on north edge of Bear Creek High, 10555 Thornton Road, Stockton (Park on McNabb Street, just west of Thornton). 

This ride will feature a tour of the Lodi wine country to the west of Lodi, with a stop at Phillips Farms for snacks and refreshments; riders can then chose to return to Bear Creek, or continue north to Thornton, CA (the two options total about 10 miles and 30 miles, roundtrip, respectively). 

Rides travel along quiet wine-country roads, at a leisurely pace with “catch-up” stops for all riders.  All riding levels will be accommodated; youth under age 18 must ride with helmets; adults are strongly encouraged to ride with helmets.  Riders should bring drinks and sunscreen; a bike lock is also suggested. 

LSD Rides are typically held the first Saturday each month; are free to participants and presented by the San Joaquin Bicycle Coalition.  For more information, please contact Tim Viall (I am one of the bike tour leaders), tviall@msn.com; cell phone, 209.969.3875.
