I rode the 72-mile route last year, the inaugural year for Ride for Mom. The ride was at a beautiful time of year, the weather was perfect and the ride was well marked and enthusiastically supported. The portion of the ride along Willms and Crabtree Roads is especially nice; good roads with gorgeous views of Sierra foothills and almost no traffic. It's used for several time trials and has a long, gentle descent with a nice tailwind. I'm signed up for the Century this year and am very much looking forward to it. I recommend this ride.
