Leader:  Debra Lebish, 916-501-3317,

Description:                              UPDATE!!

This month’s Enduro really lives up to its name – plenty of miles and elevation to satisfy the animal in each of us.  Big dogs will go for option 1 or 2 that have similar miles and climbing but slightly different routes.  Little tiny cute puppy dogs will be challenged by Option 3, a very pleasurable 48 miles and 3100 feet.  There’s no wrong choice – just get out there and ride!


Ride starts at 9:00 AM from Moskowite Corner which is at the intersection of Highways 121 and 128, approximately 35 miles west of Davis.

Plan on no amenities at the start however there are various picnic areas along the route which may have some facilities for rest and hydration. Regroups at mile 18 Knoxville Pope Bridge (restroom and maybe water) and mile 28 and mile 45 at the store in Pope Valley which has food and restrooms. All route options go through Pope Valley. For option 1 thru Napa Valley, facilities at Lake Hennessey boat ramp.  A certain level of self sufficiency is expected on a ride of this distance and caliber, be prepared with your own water and food and a well-maintained bicycle.

Option #1  (65 miles- includes Pope Valley, Ink Grade, Napa Valley & Lake Hennessey) NEW 4695 ft climb

Option #2 (64 miles- includes Pope Valley, Ink Grade & Angwin) 5014 ft climb

Option #3 (48 miles- includes Pope Valley) 3100 ft climb

NOTE:  Option #1 is revised upon advice of local road conditions of Old Howell Mountain Road - revised RWGPS file has new routing via Napa Valley.  Get the new route if you previously downloaded.

Jersey recommendation:  Iconic yellow Sacramento Wheelmen jersey
