This ride has it all! Ascents, fantastic descents, redwoods, reservoirs, a great bakery, a bike trail through a beautiful state park, (did I mention a great bakery?), and a ride through another state park with wonderful views of San Pablo Bay. The Light riders get to experience most of this as well with a mellow ride of just 25 miles. What's not to like?
