What better way to celebrate the end of March Madness than to join your friends on a really mellow tour of the wine country? And April Fools’ Day is a bonus.

  • Sunday, March 29: A 55-mile ride from Davis to Napa via Pleasants Valley and Wooden Valley with only half the vertical climb of Highway 128 (Cardiac).
  • Monday, March 30: Ride the popular Silverado trail for its entire length and on Cloverdale. You’ll go 60 miles through America’s premier vineyards.
  • Tuesday, March 31: From Cloverdale, we ride back roads west of the Russian River all the way to the coast, then finish along the beautiful Sonoma beach at Bodega Bay for a total of 57 miles.
  • Wednesday, April 1: We follow the coast route with a tailwind down to the Larkspur Ferry – a delightful 56 miles without the foolish Golden Gate Bridge crossing, over-nighting in the city.
  • Thursday, April 2: We will take a twenty-mile tour of the Presidio before returning to the hotel and packing up. Mid-day, cyclists will take public transportation back to Davis, while the SAG will carry their luggage.

Each day, we can suggest some interesting routes if you’d like to add to your miles and fun. A deposit of $50 is needed to hold space, with the balance due March 10. Tour Limit: 16

Cost Estimate: Member’s cost, double occupancy, $225 covers four nights in 2 or 3-star lodging, 3
breakfasts, excellent maps, and SAG service to carry luggage.
