Billy Goat
Coleman Valley East,Coleman Valley West,Trinity Grade

*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Here's a little get away adventure - experience the Joy of Out of Area Goats. We beat some south bay commute traffic by leaving home early for the 100 mile drive to rustic Occidental. Don't ask about the SF traffic. This mild thirty mile ride in beautiful pastoral hills has spectacular north coast Pacific vistas and hopefully cool coastal breezes. It's not shown, but we will also ride Joy Road (the automated ride creation system still lacks Joy). On the return home we may drive across the Napa Valley and then ride Trinity Road. Interested? Contact the ride leader for carpooling and/or driving instructions. Start/finish on Main Street in Occidental.

The plan is for Mellow LM riders only. Expected to ride together at the pace of the slowest rider. If there is to be a Quick Spinner (QS) option, it will be impromptu. QS may do very challenging hills at a quicker M to MB pace. Route sheets provided on-line, and a few on the ride. Meet at Summit Bikes, Main Street in Los Gatos. Rain or intense heat cancels. Burritos after. Be there ready to roll by six. Typically another cyclist will lead the Quick Spinners option. Blog: http://whineanddine.wordpress.com
