Autumn Camp will be in the northern coastal area: Sonoma County, with beautiful Fall riding on roads in and around Guerneville, Monte Rio, Healdsburg, Occidental, Cazadero, and along the coast. We'll have options for riders of all abilities from easy to moderate and more challenging rides along some of the same roads Levi's Gran Fondo travels including the beautiful and iconic Kings Ridge. The Gran Fondo describes Kings Ridge this way: "From the damp redwood forests at the base of King Ridge to the 360-degree panoramas at the butcher knife-thin top, this is the stuff of memory. And if you think the climbs are amazing, the descents down Hauser Bridge Road and Meyers Grade will stay with you for the rest of your days."
It really is one of the best but only one of the many routes we can take through the area's deep redwood forests to the rugged Northern coast.
We're in the process of developing ride, camping, motel and other details and will forward those in the next few weeks but for now:

The Cycling Education Committee(CEC) offers a series of rides on Sundays to promote cycling knowledge, skills and safety. These are "no-drop" rides especially intended for riders wishing to learn about cycling as well as wanting to develop their cycling skills and fitness. They are social rides, generally at the pace of the slowest rider, and have a "sweep" so no one gets dropped. Routes are usually in the range of 15 to 20 miles and not too hilly. All have a short pre-ride clinic about cycling. The names of these rides and ride leaders are:
Cycling 100: Ted Herr
Cycling 101: Rudy Dressendorfer
Cycling 102: Jan Jacobson
Cycling 103: Chuck Craig
Please check the calendar for dates and details.
