BECAUSE OF THE DISTANCE AND HILLS (THIS RIDE HAS SOME VERY CHALLENGING CLIMBS), I NEED AN EMAIL FROM EA OF YOU TELLING ME HOW FAR YOU TYPICALLY RIDE, HOW OFTEN, WHAT PACE, & TERRAIN. * THIS RIDE IS NOT A WALK IN THE PARK *
There will be a $5 admin fee for this ride.
This ride is also poted here...
This will be a beautiful ride - the vineyards will be bright w/ reds, oranges, and yellows! This is an incredibly beautiful time of the year here in Sonoma County.
We'll ride over Chalk Hill Rd into Alexander Valley, where we'll stop for a snack and do some tasting at one of the wineries there. Then we'll ride over to Dry Creek Valley, making a stop at one of my favourite wineries (I'm not telling) where we'll have lunch on their beautiful grounds (bringy our own - lunch that is). From there we'll ride through the Dry Creek region and back to Santa Rosa. This will be a full day of fun, and sometiimes challenging riding, and a chance to see some amazing Sonoma County Autumn colors!
This ride is posted on other Meetup sites and will be agood chance oto meet other riders.
What To Bring:
Snacks, water, and a lunch.
Wear: Sunscreen, layered clothing, your helmet.
I pack a few fruit bars and at least one sandwich for lunch.
Fill your tires the day/eve before.
Have your bike tuned and in good shape.
Getting out for a couple nice rides before this one (on your own if necessary) would help.
A repair kit (optional, though always suggested - at least a spare tube is highly recomended). I'll have a pump.
As always, your sense of humour is required!
