For today's ride, the group meets up at the corner of Ramal Rd and Hwy12/121 in Sonoma County. There is ample parking in the dirt lot surrounding the tall eucalyptus tree.
We head south on Ramal Rd for the next 4.7 miles and ride pass vineyard after vineyard. The road conditions are very rough and filled with many cracks and potholes. It does get better as we turn onto Duhig Rd. There are a few short climbs in between before the turn on Hwy 12/121 to Old Sonoma Rd.
We continue along Dealy Ln to the short climb on Henry Rd. We ride pass vineyards before dropping down to Buhman Rd. It's really quite pretty back here. Buhman takes us along a stretch of road with yet more vineyards before we reach the residential neighborhood on Browns Valley Rd.
The turn on Redwood takes us on a quiet road with old farm houses and ranches. You can see the horses and alpacas roaming about.
