Cycling in Sonoma County

A nice article in the Chronicle about one of the best Sonoma County activities - cycling.

Starting in Santa Rosa, we'd ride west to Sebastopol, then north to Graton, mostly on the West County Trail, a paved former rail line now open only to hikers and bikers - no motor vehicles allowed. Along the way we'd sip chai, visit a goat dairy, taste some wine and revel in the scenic bounty of west Sonoma County as buds burst from the trees and wildflowers carpet the land.

Our son Liam is occupying a lot of the time we used to devote to cycling around Healdsburg, but when we get the chance, the Dry Creek Valley is truly a beautiful place to explore on two wheels.

Here's an account of a ride in Dry Creek.

If you are in Healdsburg, the folks at
