Come on a beautiful and scenic fall ride in Sonoma County.  The route is especially designed by a fellow Marin Cyclists member who knows the area well, Jan Lau.   We begin in Sebastopol and
take a bike path or 2 north to Geyserville, parallel Russian River and then Dry Creek.  We'll take a brief midpoint lunch stop at mile 33 at Geyserville Market & Deli and a photo op at the Geyserville Sculpture Trail.   We'll return on the 101 side passing through the town of Simi, Healdsburg and a dozen of world famous vineyards along the say.  Jan will lead the ride at a social AB Pace (12.5-13.9 mph average speed over the entire ride; 15-18 mph+ on the flats.)  Feel free to ride faster than this pace but please know the route as you will be riding ahead of the leader. 

This route begins in Sebastopol so we can ride within the best parts of the Sonoma wine regions.  If you choose to modify the route please know that the leaders will adhere to the published route so you MUST provide your own navigation as you will be riding on your own.
