Talking May 16th Meet and Drive

From our May drive leaders John and Don



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).


Here are some great links for Winters Ca.

Starting time (11:30AM) & the Route:


(1) From starting location, Turn Left onto Main Street go 300 Feet.

(2) Turn Right on Railroad Avenue which turns into County Road 89 and drive 10.8 Miles.

(3) Turn Left onto Hwy 16 (The County Road 89 is a Dead End if you were to continue at this intersection) continue on Hwy 16 for 39.2 Miles thru Capay Valley all the way to Hwy 20 then turn right.

(4) Take Hwy 20 for 17 Miles to I-5 South turn right onto Freeway (We will stop here on the side of the road to put SLK'S tops up as we get onto Hwy I-5 who's Speed limit is 70mph).

(5) We will take I-5 down to Woodland for 40 approximately miles (Just so we can get everyone closer to Home. It takes only 30 minutes to get to that exit). Take the West St Exit # 540. We will stop here on the side of the road and put the tops of our SLK'S down again.

(6) Turn Right on West Street go 2.0 Miles.

(7) Turn Left onto West Court Street go down 7/10ths of a Mile turn right on 1st or 2nd Street and turn left and Park in the City Parking lot.

(8) Destination: Lunch at Ludy's Barbecue

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:


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.
