49er Riding Opportunities
This is a 50 mile loop ride. Leaving from the fairgrounds this route winds its way through the rolling Hills and countryside west of Mariposa. The road conditions vary from nicely paved big sweepers to a patch quilt of repaired potholes but the vistas are beautiful. Plan on a 2-hour ride. Bring everything you need because there are no stores or services on this route.
Ben Hur 60 loop
This is a 60 mile loop ride. Leaving from the fairgrounds this route heads down Ben Hur road, winding through the countryside. At mile 23.5 you’ll encounter the town of Raymond. It’s in the vicinity of Eastman Lake, the site of last year‘s Oktoberfest campout. There is a small tavern in the town where cold beverages can be purchased. Following the route, you’ll pop out on hwy 49 just north of the town of Oakhurst where there are all the major stores and services available. From there you’ll head north, up hwy 49 and back to the fairgrounds. Be prepared for both smooth, twisty roads and patchwork quilt of pothole repaired farm roads. Plan on a 3-hour ride.
