Rides for a Sandwich 60mi/71mi Multi Levels (Helen, Margie)

We are riding for some pretty special sandwiches made with freshly baked sourdough roll, slathered with house made spread and customized to your liking or you can order the shop favorites like The Tsunami, Meat Lovers and The Piggy Tower; there is also a vegetarian offering, The Poor Boy.  Northbay Sourdough Deli 7530 Commerce Blvd, Cotati CA 94931  Click on the Northbay Sourdough Deli logo below to view the menu. 

But first we put in the miles.  Novato to Cotati and back.  The Social Pace 60 milers will keep it "Short and Sweet"* with Wilson Hill and Spring Hill Road and a last bit of rollers on Roblar Road.  The Moderate Pace 71 milers will roll Long and Steady and hit Wilson Hill, Middle Road and Roblar Road.  The 2 pace groups may meet up at North Bay Sourdough Deli.  The lunch stop is at about 2/3 of the way through for each route.  Then it's a mostly flat ride back to the start.  So how about it?

Brisk C Pace folks are free to ride either distance and regroup or not as desired.

Riding at the group's pace is encouraged.  If you decide to modify the route and set your own pace you will be riding apart from the group.  Please upload the turn directions to your bike computer.

All riders welcome.  Members and Non-members must pre-register to ride
