There were 17 bikes and 17 riders gathered at Shari’s for our ride to Lakeport. Sharon led the group with Heidi mid-sweep and Gretchen sweeping.
We headed to Crane Canyon, Bennett Valley, Warms Springs to Hwy 12 to Calistoga Rd. Then south on 128 to Chiles Pope Valley Rd. Our rest stop was at the Pope Valley Store / outhouse.
After our break and shedding some layers, we headed toward Middletown, then north on 29 to our lunch stop at Renee’s in Lakeport. The restaurant is always accommodating, and they were ready for us. FYI…There’s lots of flat paved parking (LOL).
After a delicious lunch we headed north on 29 to gas up at the Chevron, then west on 20 to Hwy 101 south. Some of us stopped in Cloverdale to say our goodbyes, while others headed home.
The temperatures did get hot with 102 in some places, but overall, it was a good ride with a great group of riders. A total of 266 miles!
