One More Week Until Levi’s Fondo!
September 24, 2011

October 1st and Levi’s Gran Fondo is almost here! This is a first class event and I couln’t say enough good things about it and, especially, the people who work to make it all happen. Seriously this is a huge ride! Huge in terms of size, elevation gain, distance and mostly, the funding it provides for local causes. If you …

Sebastopol and Sweetwater

This is a sweet (no pun intended) little ride with one really good climb in the middle of it. Ragle Ranch Regional Park is a popular location as a start/finish point for many group rides. Much of the first and last parts of this route take you on the West County Trail. This is a mixed use trail that seems to …

The TOWERS!

This climb is a local favorite. We have shown the route starting at Highway 12, but you can start anywhere or add this into another ride, and since the way in is the way out it we didn’t show it as a round trip. If you are unsure about cycling on gravel roads then you may want to shorten this …

The Geysers Loop

This loop, starting and finishing in downtown Healdsburg, includes one of the biggest local climbs we have to offer. It a substantial climb but well worth the effort as the Geysers Road has very little car traffic, which makes it a favorite for cycling. Sections of the road are gravel but the surface is solid and suitable for a road …

Valley Loop – 63 miles

Like the 54 mile Valley Loop this also has an abundance of vineyards and beautiful scenery. Road surfaces vary from two-lane low traffic highways to rolling country roads. There are no big climbs here and much of the route is flat but there are parts where you will be treated with a fun rolling roadway. A great pit stop for …

Road surfaces vary from two-lane low traffic highways to rolling country roads. There are no big climbs here and much of the route is flat but there are parts where you will be treated with a fun rolling …

Uber-Bike open for business!
September 19, 2011

A word from the owner: Welcome, I am a cycling enthusiast. I don’t race bicycles, never have and, at my age, it’s safe to say I never will. But that doesn’t keep me from enjoying riding on the same kind of bicycles that you might see in a race. The feel of a well built frame rolling on performance wheels …

What if I have an accident?

Let’s hope this doesn’t happen! First of all, we advise all cyclists to carry Emergency Notification information with them. If you have a ROAD-ID please wear it. If you are carrying a cellphone you can help emergency responders by adding one or more phone numbers for ICE (In Case of Emergency). One thing we can’t stress enough is use caution …

What equipment do you provide and what should I bring?

We know how one can be when it comes to their bike accessories. You don’t really need to bring anything but the following list of items are some things  you should bring to make your ride more enjoyable: 1. Shoes and pedals. We have a very small selection of “emergency” bike shoes so please being your own. We also recommend that you …

What is your refund policy?

Your rental amount is due when you receive the bike. Should you have to end your rental early, for whatever reason, then your rental will be recalculated for the revised rental rate and the excess that you paid will be refunded in full. For example, if you rented a bike for two days that rents for $100/day for a one …

Cavedale via Sonoma Mountain

Enjoy the views! Cavedale is one of the rewarding climbs in our area. It is recommended that you tackle this route fro the south as the road surface is pretty poor. This is something that you wont notice nearly as much when climbing as when descending. The preferred descent is Trinity Road which you will come to shortly after the …
