Great ride and good to meet everyone. No pictures, all I have is my Garmin data, which I can't download right now due to site maintenance.

From the now locked thread:

Good ride today everyone. I ended up making it up Sierra in 36:45 according to my GPS. It was definitely easier on the road bike than on my MTB.

That was fun! I'm still impressed with ukbloke and ukgirl's ascent - it must have been the cow bell and "go faster Daddy" cheering all the way up!

I'm glad I left with the B group - it would have been too hard to nurse my HR all the way up chasing the A riders! As it was, with my 15 min head-start, I can claim line honors and a decent 31:02 time (I think I could get under 30 if I let go). I certainly don't have quite the strength to stay with you hammerheads!

Near the top my path was crossed by a tarantula and nearby there was a good looking, but dead, snake, so I came back down to get photos:

I ride Calaveras so infrequently, and was feeling so good after keeping my HR down the whole way, that I just had to climb Welch Creek Rd. It's a great climb - and the whole length has been repaved (properly - no chip seal here). Here's the profile for those interested in giving it a go. I promise those 20+% sections will really put the hurt in!

Hey, you know it's going to be a good ride when my wife's baking goodies at 5am. She wanted to help out so she whipped up a couple things to tie us over before lunch.

The group at the lot was a good size as we had around 20 people present. Everybody was ready except for a couple stragglers and our C group leader who was yet to arrive. We did a couple of sweeps at the wrong meeting spot location just to make sure there were no lost souls out there.

The B group went off with some sandbaggers and the UK man pedaled off with them. But instead of an alleycat tandem bike, He used a straight up bike carriage. That meant he had no assist on this climb.
<table style="width:auto;"><tr><td><a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/OAuM5xJjMlGEH9v4wuwOyp2H-qaoWEfDu-vY34nR_ak?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.ggpht.com/_JefO7lXGKAg/TIxUpbPNe8I/AAAAAAAAji8/7okFmmC_rV8/s800/IMG_0276.JPG" /></a></td></tr><tr><td style="font-family:arial,sans-serif; font-size:11px; text-align:right">From <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/fcebedo/Desktop?authkey=Gv1sRgCLTyp7HP74K1Ng&feat=embedwebsite">Desktop</a></td></tr></table>

After a while, the A group took off and we instructed the C's of Sebastian, Gary, and Ken to wait for their leader Thien. The warm-up was awesome with about 600 yards and about 5 feet of elevation change. Then Sierra Road hit and the some of the upstart A's launched their attacks. Derek and I were smart as we just backpedaled.

And then we came up to the great UK who was pedaling at 100 rpms while his daughter chatted away. I interviewed him a little bit but he sounded delirious and was rattling off physics.

Then we came up on Gregg Kato of mtbr and he was the picture of pain. I'm not sure if he's climbed Sierra before and and I'm not sure if he will again.

We crowned our King of the mountain champs Chris, Tosa and Paul. Times were 27.5 minutes and a couple 28 minutes I think.

We then did the descent to Felter Calaveras. The first part was super awesome and the next couple of miles was the chipseal. Basically, it was a non-event. Some people bombed it and a few just took their time.

We then hooked up with the C group at Calaveras and tackled the mini wall. And as we took off. Ali, called us back to say the Ken was still helping some stranded cyclists. Good call and good deed so we waited. Then Ken came and launched an attack so we dropped him :)

The neutral zone lasted for about 10 seconds as Heythorp quickly picked up the pace. Ken followed attentively as experience told him that the ride festivities were about to commence. Some of the heavy hitters were caught in the back and were never to be heard from again.

It was at this point that Chris launched a vicious attack and opened up a 20 yard gap. No one could follow as Dr. Wheels and I just looked at each other. We knew he couldn't solo the whole way so it was ok. But then 2nd place KOM Tosa launched and bridged the gap to Chris. We knew we had to follow and the peloton blew apart. After the smoke cleared. It was Chris, Tosa, Me and Dr. Wheels far ahead of the group. Chris kept pulling as Tosa was not comfortable up front. Dr. Wheels and I had a cocktail at the back and enjoyed the view. We took some pulls and Tosa and Dr. Wheels fell back at the crest of the hill. We then regrouped and coasted together all the way to Welch Creek.

A bee hit my shin and stung me. Bastard. It only hurts when I'm sober.

So we rested and were surprised the whole A group and B group roll in. C group came in as well to the very end. Must be a nice day. Or nobody wanted to wait out in the sun.

A small breakaway of Dr. John, Ebrider, Ken and Heythorp formed up front and two of them escaped for the day. At the top of Calaveras, we did a regroup and gathered up the motivated. We waited for them so we could drop them :p

Ali with beautiful Raleigh launched an attack and kept waiting and waiting for us to come. He slowed up so we passed him and spit him off the back. It was all civil until Chris launched a vicious attack once more and yelled something like 'want it, get it!'. I followed him and the rest of the crew was dropped. Then Chris tired and I started upping the tempo. He kept following but kept yelping 'make it stop, make it stop...'. So we sat up and enjoyed the view. Bustamove who was quiet all day then showed up with Tosa. Then Sebastian who flew in from a far away land rolled with us to. We saw EBrider and Dr. John at the regroup point and we all hung out for a while.

So we got back to the cars and ate and drank like kings. EBrider's Belgian beers were off the hook. We hung out for a long while then everybody left as I waited for Thien and the gang. It turns out Ken got a flat and they all waited with him. They rolled in too and we ate and drank some more. Meanwhile, Ratpick who climbed to the moon rolled in as well.

It was a good day.

Much better getting the description (even though I suspect a lot of it was bogus) than just the raw photos (which I had already seen on the Picasa site).

Good show (and if I ever get out of Nevada I might be able to join one of these rides).

Was it you talking to the cops on the 101 overpass? What happened?
As I was riding by I noticed one of the cops was one of my friends who works in the area so I thought I'd stop and harass him a little. Funny as I was sitting there how many people were driving by giving me dirty looks and shaking their heads, probably thinking I was the one who causes the accident. lol

Dang, I missed all the action in the front.

@ FC - your description of the climb out on Calaveras back isn't entirely accurate. You wrote, "The gradual climb to the top came easy as folks just took it easy." Um, I was pushin about as hard as I could! :)
