BARC Monthly Ride: Rodota & West County Trails - Santa Rosa
Note the 10 AM start time. This is to allow a bit of extra time to get there.
It's been almost 3 years since we rode the Rodota and West County Trails so we are waaay overdue to ride this very scenic and enjoyable trail. We'll ride the flat Joe Rodota Trail between Santa Rosa and Sebastopol before connecting to the West County Trail. The West County Trail rises lazily through Sebastopol before leveling out some and ending with another gradual rise into Forestville. We'll have lunch at: Backyard (http://www.backyardforestville.com/welcome/) before beginning our return journey to Santa Rosa (with a stop in Sebastopol for coffee?). If attendance seems it will be high enough I'll call Backyard a few days in advance to make reservations.
Distance: 27 miles
Pace: 10-12 mph when rolling on flat ground
Terrain: Mostly bike path with a few short on-road & off-road connector sections. Some short climbs -- nothing out of line for a BARC Monthly Ride, see route link below for additional detail.
