Saturday, February 1, Road Ride, 10:00 am, Russian River Brewery (Windsor) - Sebastopol, 34.6 miles/pace 2/level B/hills B/700 ft.
This ride starts and ends at the Russian River Brewery in Windsor (not to be confused with the Russian River Brewery in Santa Rosa). We will be riding some familiar roads with a few new roads and paths sprinkled in. There is plenty of parking at the brewery, but the brewery will not be opened when we start. We will, however, have a nice rest stop with easy restrooms at the halfway point at Coffee Catz in Sebastopol. Then lunch at the brewery afterward.
Start: 700 Mitchell Ln, Windsor, CA 95492. Take the 1st Windsor exit from the south. Starting Location. Wayne Riddle 415-320-2675
Saturday, February 8, Road Ride, 10:00 am, Healdsburg-Cloverdale Loop, 42 miles/pace 2/level B/hills C
Let’s give Healdsburg a try with the loop through Cloverdale. We’ll ride through Alexander Valley on our way to Cloverdale and return on West Dry Creek. We can stop at the River Park for a restroom break, and then also stop at The Plank coffee shop in Cloverdale. The planned ride will be the full 42-mile loop, however, using the map provided, there are many options to take a shortcut or two. We’ll have to find a new place for lunch after the ride since Bear Republic is now closed. I’m thinking Barrels, Brews & Bites at 335 Healdsburg Ave.
Here’s the link https://ridewithgps.com/routes/12325788.
Start: Matheson St. Parking Lot. Take 101 North to the Central Healdsburg exit. Turn left at Matheson St. and then right into the parking lot. Jeanne Bush (707) 939-2912, Cell (707) 529-8550.
Sunday, February 16, Road Ride, 10:00 am, Vacaville-Winters Loop, 42 miles/pace 2/level B/hills C
Let's enjoy a lovely relaxing day in the country. This is a great ride that goes through walnut orchards, passes a lake, and includes a lunch stop in the cute little town of Winters. Bring lunch to eat in the park there, or buy lunch at Steady Eddie's. There are no killer hills. Here is link to ride https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19462974 Rain cancels. Threat of rain, call ride leader.
Start: Lagoon Valley Park, Vacaville. Take Hwy 80 east. Exit at Pena Adobe Rd. At the stop sign, go straight thru the intersection and into the park and circle to the right to the parking lot by the lake. The good news is that there are restrooms here at the park. Be ready to support our parks with a small entry fee ($5.00). Jane Maxwell 510-548-2286 (home), 510-335-5810 (cell).
