Ride Description and Notes:
This month Enduro is part of our Summer Camp out of Petaluma. 
The ride description can be found in RWGPS with the ride url. 

Both Long and Medium Saturday rides are a lollypop route around Trione-Annadel State Park. It begins with a refreshing rollout from the hotel, and a moderate climb up Pressley Road to put just a little stress on your legs. Then mostly casual rolling terrain until the three-mile stretch of “Sonoma backroads paradise” comprised of Lawndale and Schultz roads. And finally, the signature climb on Sonoma Mountain Road before descending back to the valley.

Happy Hour Social will follow.
