We met at Shari’s at 9:00 and after greeting everybody had the riders meeting. There were 14 riders on 14 bikes. We headed for Stony Point where we headed north. After a jog we were on Fulton Rd and continued north. It was east on Mark West Springs Rd and on to Calistoga where we stopped at the grocery store to pick up lunch from their deli. From there we got on Silverado Trail; then 128 to Berryessa-Knoxville Rd and to our lunch spot on the shores of the lake.
Everybody enjoyed their lunch and a chance to catch up and meet with other riders. Then we continued north until we crossed the bridge and turned on to Pope Valley road. There was much evidence of burnt tree removal and we were able to see the terrain which would otherwise be blocked by trees. Then it was up the hill to Angwin for a brief stop. There we split into two groups. One group, led by Mike Holden, went back Silverado, into Calistoga, then Petrified Forrest Road to home. Ben took the remainder towards Napa where we turned on Spring Mountain/St. Helena Rd. and back to Santa Rosa. The round trip was 108 miles.
