Bike ride on Los Gatos creek trail + optional social after the bike ride

We will meet at 10:15 at Campbell Park on Gillman Ave, just off Campbell Ave (near the Pruneyard). There is a parking lot at the park.

People can come early and check out the really nice Farmers' Market a few blocks away on Campbell Ave, if they like.

We will leave the park at 10:30 and ride to Los Gatos, with our destination being the Testarossa Winery at 300 College Ave, Los Gatos. We can have a picnic there and also purchase a glass of wine at the Wine Bar. They also sell cheeses and "charcuterie." Those who want can do some wine tasting (it's $10). The winery is about 1/2 mile from Main Street. The winery is on a hill, so there will be climb, but it's very doable. We've been there before, and it takes about an hour and a half at a leisurely pace. The original Novitiate Winery was built in 1888 and it's very beautiful and historic. Here's a link: www.testarossa.com

Please bring your lunch with you.The total round trip is about 15 miles. It should not be too difficult, since it is all flat terrain (except the last 1/2 mile).

Upon arriving back in Campbell, optionally, for those that want to socialize, we can get a drink at a local establishment. There is a nice Happy Hour at Sushi Confidential, starting at 3:00 if people want to stay until then: http://sushiconfidential.com/menu.html

    The bike ride along Los Gatos Creek Trail, the wine tasting at Testarosa winery and the picnic there were fabulous...

    Wow, an hour and a half to go 8 miles IS a lessurely pace! LOL.

    Can't make it but enjoy yourselves at Testarossa is a lovely location.

      I'm really looking forward to this ride. Mostly for how leisure it is. So many clubs are into the "lots of miles" for bicycling and hiking.
