The Fast-Pace ride heads north then west out of Davis along County Road 29 before turning south through the Yolo County Airport. The ride continues south along Road 95 to Sievers, then heads east, crosses over Interstate 80, and continues east on Tremont to Mace Boulevard. From there, the ride turns north into South Davis for a snack break (currently Common Grounds). After the break, the ride heads home at a more relaxed pace.
The pace can get especially quick along Road 95 and Tremont, especially if there's a good northwesterly blowing. That same northwest can make the northbound leg up Mace challenging. Ride regroups as necessary to make sure no one is left behind.
A note about 'pace': Although this ride is designated as P5, frequently there are riders in attendance who prefer cycling at a more moderate P4 pace. It is not uncommon for a group of P4-ers to form en route and stick together for the ride. Please don't let the advertised P5 pace keep you from joining in.
