Sonoma Countryside Ride

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is where we'll be riding.  It's beautiful around here!

 

The Game Plan:

Prior to the ride I will be doing a free fitting clinic for anyone who's not sure their bike is properly fit.  I see many riders who's bikes are out of adjustment, which requires much more effort to ride.  If you want a fit show up at least 15 mins early.

We'll head out to the west and take in some of the great Sonoma County scenery there. We'll stop at a winery for a complimentary tasting, and have lunch (bring your own), then come back to Santa Rosa via the Santa Rosa Creek Trail (paved), where we're likely to see Egrets, Ducks, Squirrels,  Vineyards, and more!

 

This ride will be about 20 miles, is mostly flat w/ one rolling hill, and is considered easy to moderate, depending on your condition.

 

 

 

What To Bring:

Snacks, water, and a lunch.

Wear: Sunscreen, layered clothing, your helmet.

I pack a few fruit bars and a sandwich for lunch.

$5 Fun Fee

 

 

Preparation:

Fill your tires the day/eve before.
Have your bike tuned and in good shape.

A repair kit (optional, though always suggested - at least a spare tube is highly recommended). I'll have a pump.

 

 

Meet at Hyatt Hotel parking lot Downtown Santa Rosa.

GPS:  [masked],[masked]

 

 

 

As always, your sense of humour is required!

 

 

This ride will be limited to 25 riders and is posted on several other Meetup sites, so it will be an opportunity to meet new people.
