Note for Sunday, March 1: The ride will begin earlier in the morning from the West Plainfield Fire District on Road 95 [location link]. Please join us for the pancake breakfast; see the description of earlier ride to this destination. We expect to depart the fire station heading to Winters sometime between 8:45 and 9:30. There may be more than one group of riders leaving during that time.
The Sunday Morning No Drop is a great ride for both the beginner and the advanced cyclist, be it for endurance or recovery. This is a casual ride to Winters via County Road 29 and Buckeye Road, with very few cars. In Winters, we regroup for coffee and food at Steady Eddy's to socialize.
Options also include a loop around Lake Solano, for the cyclists who want to do a longer ride. The pace of some may increase over 16mph, but no one will be left behind.
The group may break up somewhat before heading back to Davis via Putah Creek Road and the Russell bike path.
We are comprised of a wide range of personalities and cycling abilities, and always welcome a new rider. If you are new to moderate paced, 30 mile rides, please let the leader know so that he may accompany you to help finish the ride!
Ride start time is 10am through April, switching to 9am May through early October.
