Ride Description:     At the start location in Ione, please don’t park in the preferred parking for Ione Plaza Market. It’s a big parking lot. We’re avoiding the Park and Ride lot to hold on to our catalytic converters. This route goes out and returns on Sutter Ione Road. On the way out, we will regroup at the public bathrooms in Sutter Creek (mile 10). Then it’s off to Volcano (mile 22). We’re stopping there: food, water, shade. Then it’s up Ram’s Horn Grade to Daffodil Hill where we regroup again. I’d like to say it’s all downhill from here, but that would be a lie. However, it’s a lot of downhill from here. A lot. We turn back towards Ione by taking Shake Ridge Road to Sutter Creek (mile 38). If you’re feeling weak/hungry/thirsty, you may want to stop again. Back at the start, the deli inside Ione Plaza Market puts out a good sandwich, if you’re interested.

Elevation:   4,457 feet
