Today's club ride meets at the corner of Ramal Rd and Hwy 12/121 in Sonoma County. There is a large dirt parking area around a single tall eucalyptus tree. You can see horses and sheep in the neighboring area. No water or restrooms are available at this start point.
We head south on Ramal Rd which turns into Duhig Rd. The road condition here is pretty much shot up, you have to choose your line carefully. The ride around the vineyards is flat and you do get a few short climbs in between before the turn onto Sonoma Hwy.
