Santa Rosa Cycling Club

Both Friday rides on the second Friday of the month start from Esposti Park in Windsor.

Twelve riders started out on a cold, but clear morning, with the Friday Riders heading towards Geyserville via Shiloh, Starr, Windsor, Riemann, Windsor River, Eastside and Old Red into Healdsburg. The Friendly Friday riders remained south of Healdsburg.

Mike Ferrell rejoined the Friday riders after many weeks of involvement with the Toys for Tots drive in San Francisco. Gordon Burns and his father, Jim, returned to the Friendly Friday group after having been away for several weeks.

As both groups headed west on Shiloh, we came across a white car with a redjacketed bicyclists hurrying to get his bicycle out of the trunk and on the road. Richard Winegarner was a late comer after having driven to Cotati (the first Friday starting point) and then finding no one there and realizing that the first Friday had been on January 1 driven back to Windsor. 

Chris Cleavland and Janice Eunice both had flats on their ride. But it was such a beautiful day and with soup at Kaffe Mocha as a goal, no one minded the extra effort in changing those tubes.  The Friday riders lounged in Geyserville for some time and then most of the group returned via Chalk Hill. La Valle Linn joined Richard Winegarner for an alternative loop through Healdsburg before returning to Esposti. 

ALERT!!! Next weeks Friendly Friday ride begins at Howarth Park with the slightly faster and much faster riders going to Mirabel Park and Ride.
