We come together at Ragle Park at 10:30am. This allows time to finish your B and B breakfast or make the drive up from virtually anywhere in the Northern California region. We fit you with a Marin hybrid-style bike along with a helmet, bag, and comfortable gel-seat. Your leader goes over the "Rules of the Road" as well as how to operate the bike.
We're off at about 10:45am. Your leader will explain the sights and local wine facts and history. We ride down into the Green Valley, passing Graton, where we turn onto the bike path. Quiet, peaceful, virtually traffic free, this enchanting road will take us to Taft Street Winery, our first stop of the day, where we will have a chance to sample some of their fine wines. The support van is nearby for wine purchases, water or extra support.
Getting back on our bikes we continue riding while enjoying the views of the vineyards and surrounding hills. With a flat road, it is easy to enjoy the scenery and fresh air. Soon we continue to our next stop, Cahill Winery and if we have a chance we will visit one more winery; Russian River Vineyards. Here we will have a chance to try their wines and enjoy our picnic lunch at Cahill or Russian River Vineyards.
Lunch with Getaway Adventures is quite an event. Shaded oaks provide a canopy with views of the valley. Enjoy a wine country lunch with dishes such as Mediterranean feta orzo salad, local organic salad greens, fresh baked bread, artisan cheeses, seasonal fruit, and dessert.
After lunch we climb into our kayaks for a leisurely paddle along this picturesque, slow-moving river that winds it's way through wine country, filled with birds and wildlife. There will be a few opportunities for some excitement as we go through Class I rapids. We finish our trip at approximately 3:30pm at Odd Fellows bridge. Here we transport you back to your vehicles and bid you farewell!
