Fall Colors ride
 
Now that the bikes have been wrenched on, I think it's a good time to see the Fall colors, that Wine Country has to offer. The next few weeks are going to be really georgous for the grape leaves, and other Flora. I am going to take a ride that envolves both. It will have to be a Sunday. I'm thinking November 4th. This ride falls on Daylight savings, so it will have to happen earlier, kickstands up at 8:00 am.

What I would like to do is the usual "Winery ride" from my house to Dry Creek Market. Over Skaggs Springs Road, to Tin Barn Road. Down to Cazadero, then Northwoods Club for lunch, and then back. I believe that is only a 125 mile loop, but really sweet as far as the sights, and roads.

Let me know, If you want to go?

Dave,

I have to say after we rode that last year, that has to be (next to the Zin-Zen ride) one of the best all around rides. Twisties, single lanes, Redwoods, Vineyards, Livestock, no traffic, no Squids, views of the ocean, mountians, GAWD we live in riding heaven. We meet at the Dry Creek Market for coffee, and safety meeting (depending on how many new riders show up)

LockJaw, are you trying to reach me or am I not understanding the post?

Snakeboy66

Tom Schmitz 10-26-2012 01:02 AM

Snakeboy66 -

You are misunderstanding.

Mark stole LJ's Dolly Madison Zingers and won't give them back. The two of them have been fussing at each other over the Zingers for three years now.

The Zingers in question are, of course, still as fresh as the day they were manufactured...

Lockjaw 10-26-2012 01:59 AM

Cause they were kept safely in a zip loc bag!!!! ;)




Mark B (4) 10-26-2012 02:15 AM

OOOOoooohh, I loved Zinger's growing up. Twinkies with iceing... LJ Got your DM? Yes you can sleep next to................


















The compressor :stickpoke: Or the TV



OR the :animal0019:


Maybe the :29: Shark Tank







Or in the :character0011: Garage

Mark B (4) 10-26-2012 02:23 AM

Wanted to say,

That this ride is brought to by my wife allowing me to ride. For the last four weeks I have hosted my friends from China, gearing up for their South America tour on my only day off, plus the Techday, so every Sunday that I have had off has been a KLR Sunday. Mary said "Another Sunday without you?" I said PAAAALEASSSSE, and then remembered my Birthday is the following Sunday, So she gave me this ride as my Birthday gift. What a great wife, and gift. I look forward to getting out and riding with you all!

I did find "Dry Creek General Store", same place??

Yes. I believe the cross street is Lambert Bridge rd.

Mark B (4) 10-30-2012 08:56 PM

Took a pre-run on part of the route this past weekend, colors are really poping right now. Should be a really nice ride. Weather looks to be great, sunny, and 75 degrees. I have set up a series of stops that will be beneficial to all, and of course lunch at the Northwoods Club. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Riders that are arriving the night before, show up around 5-5:30pm.

That is all...

KLR-zin 10-30-2012 09:28 PM

Well, I hate to do this, but I have to pass on this ride. My older son is going on first date of sorts. Since he's not nearly as ugly as me, I need to be chaperone....and chauffer.

Hope you guys have a great ride!

Dave
