HillJillys Road Ride:
Saturday, November 21st, 9:30am

Deanna will lead us out this week on a medium-length ride that includes a stop at one of our fave West County bakeries: Wild Flour in Freestone. (Bring a bit of cash for one of their yummy scones.)

Meet at Youth Community Park in Santa Rosa at 9:30am on Saturday. The ride is less than 35 miles but includes the Harrison Grade and Jonive ascents, so be prepared for a fair bit of climbing. If you want to meet up with the group at the bike path on Green Valley, give us a shout so Deanna knows to look for you. More specific route details can be found on our Facebook group page.

The know-how to go now: beginner-friendly, everyone welcome, and no one left behind. Rain cancels!

HillJillys MTB Brunch Ride:
Saturday, November 14th, 9:30am

Oh, do we ever have something special planned for this week:

The boys of Bike Monkey have volunteered to host an on-trail brunch for the HillJillys in Annadel. (Yup, you read that right.) Woohoo! They're keeping the menu under wraps, but we have it on good authority that there will be french toast and Flying Goat coffee. Mmmmmm.

PLEASE RSVP for this one by noon Friday, 11/13, so they can be sure to bring enough vittles--just email us at hilljillys@gmail.com. There's no cost, but small contributions to offset food costs appreciated.

Meet in the usual spot on Channel Drive at the bottom of Cobblestone, 9:30am. We'll ride for a bit before finding our way to our brunch stop out in the park.

Back to the dirt we go! Kristy is leading Saturday's mountain bike ride in Annadel. Stuff your pockets with leftover Halloween candy, enjoy the brighter mornings, and get on the trails while the gettin' is good. A wet El Niño winter is just around the corner...

Post-ride and/or if you're gonna skip this one, check out the first CXSR race at Youth Community Park. Cyclocross season in Sonoma County provides stellar heckling, i mean, cheering opportunities. And, oh yes: you could race, too.
