Join us Saturday May 12th, 2012, in Solvang/Santa Ynez for a bike ride and wine tasting. Enjoy biking with your friends and enjoying the scenery along the way as the Santa Ynez Valley is beautiful this year with all the recent rains. We are planning to do the Solvang – Los Olivos loop going to the Gainey, Bridlewood, Brander and Roblar wineries and then to the town of Los Olivos where there are 25 tasting rooms within a 2 block radius including Arthur Earl, Andrew Murray, Longoria, Tercero, Byron and Pacific Ridge, ending back at Solvang.
To carpool, either meet between 8:00 & 8:30 AM at the Vons Parking Lot, Seaward and Harbor in Ventura. Going North on the 101, get off at the Seaward off ramp turning left towards the Ocean. Make a left on Harbor and a right into the parking lot between Carrows and the bank. We will leave promptly at 8:30 AM.
Or meet us in Solvang, at the VFW parking lot in Solvang by the Police Station on CA 246 on the east side of Solvang at 10:00 AM. Bring your bike, water and something for lunch, or you can grab something at one of the wineries.
We are also looking for someone interested in being the SAG vehicle. This will depend on the number of people interested in riding. This would be someone interested in going up there for the day but not wanting to ride or only interested in doing part of the ride. They would be in charge of storing any purchases along the way, picking up tired bikers, and taking our lunches to the designated winery.
