yeah the last 10 miles we went on a mountain bike trial, none of us were geared for it. If you take the normal bike trail along the American river it's mostly flats until you get to folsom, from there it will be roughly ~2-3 miles of hills. We stopped to have a few beers along the way, and the mountain bike trail took us 4 hours to ride that 10 miles Normally when you go to folsom you try to go to Beals point, as you can see in the map we went AROUND the lake (which was new the me) to Peninsula CampgroundsGimme some context of the ride, are there a lot of climbs with brutal gradients? Did you stop frequently during the ride?
6 hours is a long time to just cover 44 miles
