Day 1 - Coleman Valley Road Ride

Bob and Bernie at Howard's Cafe in Occidental

Bob Anderson and Bernie Conner, my cycling buds from Santa Rosa joined us for a couple rides. The Coleman Valley Road ride took us on a big loop through Occidental, Bodega Bay and Freestone for 49 miles and 4,026' of ascending.
