We take Nicasio Valley Rd to Pt Reyes-Petaluma Rd. The winds are really blowing; you can see white caps on the water in the reservoir.
The turn on Hicks Valley takes us on a quiet and secluded back road along a few farms and vineyards.
We head west on Chileno Valley Rd for the next 9.5 miles. The strong head wind is making this ride quite a work out! The flat rolling terrain on this road takes us pass Laguna Lake and many farms and ranches. It's just miles and miles of green grasslands.
We arrive at Point Reyes Station for a snack/coffee stop at the Bovine Bakery. There are a few public art displays in the common picnic area.
The next 3 miles on Nicasio Valley Rd takes us back to the parking lot.
