HillJillys Road Ride:
Saturday, September 26th

You know where there aren't any vineyards (and large trucks full of freshly harvested grapes)? On Mill Creek Road. Yup, that's where we're headed for Saturday's HillJillys road ride. Mill Creek is an out-and-back hill climb from downtown Healdsburg, gentle and gradual at first with a steep kick at the end. And the beauty of an out-and-back: you only have to go as far as you're feeling it.

Meet at the Flying Goat in Healdsburg at 9:30am, Saturday, September 26th. As usual, beginner-friendly, everyone welcome, and no one left behind!

HillJillys MTB Ride: TAMARANCHO!
Saturday, September 19th, 9:30am

We're off to Marin this week to mountain bike the Tamarancho Boy Scout Camp! Kristy is leading this excursion, and she's calling it an intermediate/advanced level ride.

Meet at 9:30am at the Java Hut across from Iron Springs Brew Pub. We'll ride for about 2 to 2-1/2 Hours and then reward ourselves afterwards with a beer and a burger at the pub!

Tamarancho is a fee-entry area and day passes are $5. Their website doesn't let us link directly to the pass page, but go there and click on "Tamarancho Biking" in the navigation on the left for more info and to buy your pass. If you want to buy it when you get there, be sure to give yourself extra time and arrive early.

A bye week?

Couldn't find anyone available to lead this weekend's HillJillys ride, so we're taking the week off. Stay tuned for more info about MTB in Tamarancho next weekend!

HillJillys MTB Ride:
Saturday, September 5th, 9:30am

Sadly, we've wrapped the mid-week rides: shortening days, start of school, and other mysterious circumstances have kept most of us from attending, and after weeks of low turnout (including a couple of no show rides!), we're gonna put them on hiatus for a while.

The Saturday rides, though? They live on.

This weekend, c'mon out for an Annadel MTB outing, led by Kim. Meet on Channel Drive at the bottom of Cobblestone at 9:30am. As always, beginner-friendly, everyone welcome, and no one left behind!

Also, mark your calendars: in two weeks, on September 19th, we're going to Tamarancho.
