This will be a moderate 30+ mile ride that is mostly flat. The rating is based primarily on distance, and though I'm not screening for this one PLEASE BE SURE YOU ARE UP FOR 30+MILES.
We'll see Vineyards, the Russian River, the Hacienda Bridge, Forestville -where we'll ride the quaint forested backroads of Forestville, the Santa Rosa Creek, maybe even see some ducks, egrets, and more!
We'll stop in the Forestville area for lunch. You can bring your own, or pick up a sandwich at a deli we'll stop at, then we'll eat beneath the redwoods. If you enjoy riding and great scenery, you won't want to miss this one.
What To Bring:
Snacks, lunch, water, sunscreen, layers, hat.
Have your bike tuned and in good shape.
A repair kit (optional, though suggested). I'll have a pump.
Fill your tires the day/eve before.
Chill your water bottles or hydration pack (half full w/ water - refrigerate overnight, then top off w/ ice in the a.m. for cold water all day).
$10 ride fee
As always, your sense of humour is required!
Meet at the Vineyard Inn Hyatt Hotel parking lot o/s the restaurant - Downtown Santa Rosa.
This ride is posted on other Meetup grps, and this will be a good opportunity to make some new friends.
