Billy Goat
Parker Ranch,Regnart Road,Sarahills/Old Oak
*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** All paces welcome, as are longer options and rider input. Parker Ranch is a new goat. It is wandering around with two other goats, lost in Saratoga. Let's find them. It is a short ride, so I will probably celebrate finding the lost by climbing them twice. As always, route sheets are provided because the ride leader will lead from the rear, at a mature pace. Start/finish at the Argonaut Shopping Center in Saratoga on Saratoga-Sunnyvale Road just south of Pierce Road. 02-03-2017 10:00:00 02-03-2017 12:00:00 6 ACTC: Our Favorite Kids 20 mi, 6 M , 1800 ft: *** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** All paces welcome, as are longer options and rider input.
