Mr. Frog’s Wild Ride Returns!
Saturday, May 6, 2023
Challenge yourself in the Sierra Nevada Foothills with three rides through Calaveras County Up-Country and the Foothills.
Stunning scenery, challenging hill climbs and exhilarating downhill sections make this ride special. Plus, many sections are newly paved, so you’ll experience smooth cycling. You'll get SAG support from local bike shops, rest stops with snacks along the way, and traffic controls.
At the end of the ride, you'll be treated to an after-ride party with a fabulous lunch by Laura and Rick Lovell from Vida Buena Farm, live music, and local wine and beer for purchase. There’s a local flavor to Mr. Frog’s Ride that can’t be duplicated!
55 miles • 6,080' elevation gain
This challenging ride is a great training ride for riding in the Sierra Nevada. Eight Category 5 hill climbs, one Category 4, and one Category 2 through gorgeous country. Register the night before to get an early start!
43 miles • 4,600' elevation gain
A challenging ride with seven category 5 hill climbs and one category 2, but 60-75 minutes shorter than the Wild ride. It offers best of new roadway pavement.
21 miles • 1,600' elevation gain
Five short category 5 hill climbs and some steep bumpy roads including 2.5 miles of dirt reward cyclists with a quiet descent down San Domingo Road.
The ride starts and ends at Feeney Park, a treasured community facility that provides athletic fields for local youth sports, an amphitheater, a skate park, a disc-golf course, and walking trails. The park is a unifying force in the region; countless volunteer hours, donations, and good old-fashioned hard work have built it into a valued community treasure. 100% of the profits from registration plus your donations will go toward maintaining this important space.
Please support our local community!
