A reprise of a lovely route. This ride will be a relaxed ramble through the countryside. We’ll climb northwest up the canyon alongside Putah Creek over the Monticello Dam and Cardiac Hill, which are the only big climbs of the day, to Moskowite Corner. From there, one little bump and then we fly down Wooden Valley to Mankas Corners and on to Fairfield where we'll take a food break at the coffee house. We’ll turn north, climb a few short rollers and then have a couple options: 1) a nice smooth ride all the way north back to Lake Solano Park and on to Winters or 2) head east across Vaca Valley Road, up Gibson Canyon and the est side of Cantelow. Option 2 rejoins the Option 1 riders for the smooth ride back to Winters.
Start: Steady Eddy's Coffee House in Winters (use Rotary Park parking lot at Railroad and Main east of Steady Eddy's)
When: Ready to ride at 10 am
Climbing: 2,780 without the extra climb of Cantelow
To get to Winters: Interstate 505 goes north right into Winters from I-80 or your can take Russell Blvd east out of Davis.

Amici Veloci began when a group of Calif women participating in a women's cycling forum formed a team for a charity ride. Our team grew to include our ride buddies, male and female, roadies and dirt riders, across the USA. Though some of us have never met we've become good friends and ride together whenever we can. This blog is to keep all our members up to date on our happenings as well as sightings of our tattoo and jersey. Read below for our shared adventures and maybe a recipe or two.
