From our May drive leaders John and Don :rb



We will meet & greet at 10:30AM in Historic Winters at Main Street & Railroad Avenue. From Railroad Avenue, turn left at Main Street then turn right in the Public Parking area. The Buckhorn Restaurant & Steady Eddy's Café are on that corner. There is a great parking area at that location, some shade and a Gazebo too, public restrooms & Ladies can cross the street to Steady Eddy's.

For Lunch we specifically chose Ludy's Bar-be-cue (in Woodland). :Beer:


Here are some great links for Winters Ca.

Details, Side Notes & What If's Possibility of Hazards?

We drove the route 3 different times no Bicyclists at all. We did see them in Winters,so they must be going into Davis.
Drive time about 1.45Hours . Total Mileage 108.

Possible Hazards: :tazz:


Deer signs throughout Drive, Falling Rock signs periodically & A Possibility of No Cell phones Coverage somewhere throughout the drive, as well as limited decent restrooms for the Ladies. Probably No bicyclist, very light traffic & probably a few motorcyclists & beautiful scenery!

There will be, but it may be a few days...this is the first event I have missed since Jan'05 (I am now in China on business), so others will be pulling together pictures within a few days.

I will be posting info and at the 6/20/09 meet as well soon.
