Panera parking lot at 8:30
The beginning of this ride is flat. The route does a mild climb as riders start up to the Santa Maria Mesa. After a slight down hill, then a drop to the river crossing the group will regroup at Foxen Canyon. After making a right everyone will enjoy a relatively level run past a historical sod homestead and another regroup in Sisquoc. This is where rider options will happen. People wanting more climbing will head up Palmer Rd and after a right turn, climb Dominion with a long, steady climb up Clark. The other choice for riders is to follow Foxen Cyn to Betteravia and Panera.
