Dan’s GPS is quite the statistician. 3,199 satellite readings in 90 minutes. We now have a 21.2 mile training route around El Dorado for those who wish to start their outdoor century training. Looks to be about an hour and a half workout for one circuit including a few rollers, 10.4 miles of climbing, 10.9 miles descending pedaling the loop counter clockwise. 1,159 feet climbing elevation, ditto descending. Tuesday 25th, oh god I need a rest day. fsg@email.arizona.edu if you would like to join a jaunt.

There are two or three easy parking areas on the route, RT and Ave. Vista Grande, Playground parking a mile further west near Ave. Vista Grande and De Compadres intersection and a couple more along the Eldo Loop. Following is the counterclockwise route from Rail Trail (RT) and Ave. Vista Grande parking. Maybe Dan can use his magic to add milage markers.
