Super Skaggs! With Lotsa Dirt. Those of you who choose the hardest possible Hopper, and perhaps the hardest one-day adventure ride in the US, will get a fair helping of dirt. We will all start together and ride West Dry Creek Rd to Sweetwater. Then we’ll follow the Russian River to East Austin Creek Rd. (Due to a slide we will NOT be able to use Old Cazadero Rd.) Next, we take Cazadero Hwy to Cazadero. Then, King Ridge to Tin Barn and Skaggs. After the flats/rollers along the Gualala River, we will do the first big climb up Skaggs and then descend. At the bottom of the descent, we will stay left on “Old Skaggs” and continue descending to the Lake Sonoma single track. The course then follows the lake trail counterclockwise. DO NOT think you can do this on a road bike. You must be on a cross bike/adventure bike. Riders will not be allowed to continue beyond the hydration stop and proceed around the lake if they are not adequately prepared.
