In and around the Santa Rosa/Russian River area, with just the one climb shown above. (Same as last year, with popular Willow Creek Road option).

BBQ potluck back at Nik’s after the ride. Bring what you like to eat and drink. You know the drill.



That’s not all. The pre-ride Hydration Event will be the night before, Saturday, September 21st 6:30pm until 8:30pm at Rapha Club SF. There will be beer and artisinal pizza.  This was very enjoyable last year. Cover charge is $25 for food and bevs.

Parking is challenging but not impossible with patience and guile. Secure indoor bicycle parking is provided.


There’s still more!! How could there be any more? Your Dino committee has been busy designing stylish, yet classic jerseys for your purchase and display. The more we order, the cheaper they are. There is no classier jersey on the road. (And shorts too!) Just go to the Gear page and Dinofy your stylish self.
