April 2012 Ride | The Grand Cru on Tour to Petaluma

The Grand Cru on Tour

Saturday April 28 to Sunday April 29
Departing & Returning to the San Francisco Ferry Building
Spending the Night in Petaluma
RSVP via email to claim a spot at the campsite | iafigueroa@gmail.com


Since last month’s ride got rained out, we want to make it up to you. April’s ride will be double the fun, consisting of two days of riding (i.e it’s an overnighter).

This is something I’ve been wanting to do with the Cru for a while. A few of us rode up and stayed at Lagunitas a couple of years ago and had a blast. Here’s the itinerary:

Day 1:

Bike route 1503217 – powered by Bikemap

Day 2:

Bike route 1503220 – powered by Bikemap
For those of you that have never gone on tour, this would be a great first outing. That being said, this ride will be harder and longer than our usual Grand Cru rides – so take that into consideration. You’ll also need to bring something to sleep in (a tent might not be necessary if the weather’s good, but you will need a sleeping bag/blanket) and a few other items so consider the additional weight when making your decision.

I’ve gone ahead and reserved a large campsite a few minutes ride from Lagunitas. In order to monitor the campsite capacity we’ll actually be doing some RSVPing for this one. If you’re in – send me an email. That way we can decide whether we need to reserve additional campsites. If you have questions, post them in the comments so we can make the Q&A public for the benefit of others who may have the same questions.

See you in a few weeks, and don’t forget to RSVP at iafigueroa@gmail.com


P.S. For those of you concerned about a lack of a Russian River ride this month – don’t worry, we havent forgotten about it. It’ll happen in the next few months.

May’s Ride | Novato & Moylan’s Brewing

This month we’ll be visiting Moylan’s – the sister brewery of Marin Brewing (which we visited last spring). Moylan’s is home to such favorites as the awesomely named Hopsickle. I’ve never been but it seems they usually have about a dozen or so of their beers on tap so you’re bound to find something you’re into.

The ride’s going to be a little longer and hillier than usual, but it’s nothing you guys can’t handle. As usual, we’ll work to make sure everyone gets back to Moylan’s safe and sound.
