HillJillys MTB Ride:
Saturday, November 29th, 9am

We're girding up for some serious eating tomorrow, and dreaming of bacon candy and mushroom stuffing. Yum. Friday hikes and turkey sandwiches, but the mountain bike is laying claim to Saturday morning...

Lindsay is stepping up to lead this post-feast ride, back from some quality trail time in Tahoe and Santa Cruz. Come on out for a bit of fat tire fun.

Meet at Channel Drive in Annadel (at the bottom of Cobblestone) at 9am this Saturday. Beginners welcome, and no one gets left behind!

HillJillys Road Ride:
Saturday, November 22nd, 9:30am

Yup, the trails up at Boggs last weekend were perfect, but now it's time to get back on the pavement at home. Fellow HillJilly Deanna is leading this one, taking off out of Youth Community Park on Fulton Road.

Meet at 9:30am Saturday morning. It'll be a nice, flexible ride & decide, and she's got two great route options ready to go, with choices to make at various rest stops. Beginners welcome and friendly pace, as always, but prolly 'bout 30-40 miles--so keep that in mind if you haven't gotten your heart rate up in a while.

Get out on your bike and enjoy this amazing weather while it lasts! And nothing like a good long ride to justify an extra serving of pie on Thanksgiving... --kimdow

HillJillys MTB Ride:
Saturday, November 15th, 11am--Boggs!

Oh my goodness, the recent wet weather means the trails up at Boggs Mountain are going to be fantastic. Feels like as good a time as any for a lil' HillJillys field trip--Lake County, here we come.

Meet at the first parking lot in the Boggs Demonstration State Forest at 11am on Saturday. If you've never been to Boggs, or have been meaning to go back, now's a great time to go ride these sweet trails with a fun-lovin', no-droppin', heart-helpin' group of girls.

Also: one of my very best and oldest friends owns the coffee shop in Cobb, and we can be assured of ready availability of yummy post-ride treats. You know how I like to plan rides around cafes... --kimdow

HillJillys Road Ride:
Saturday, November 8th, 1pm

What to do, what to do? It's supposed to shower again on Saturday, but I've decided that we won't melt. We'll push it out to early afternoon in the hopes that the weather will have passed--but pull out your rain jacket and pack some dry clothes for afterward, just in case. If it does sprinkle on us, it'll be good character-building for the long winter ahead...

Meet at the Flying Goat in Healdsburg at 1pm. If it is raining, we'll just do a short spin, and (as always) beginners welcome!
