August 12th Ride
The ride to the Marin French Cheese Factory was made by Margaret, Wayne, Penny, Doug, Cy, Laura, Bob, Susan, Larry and Suzanne.
A cool morning's ride to the cheese factory. Nice day for a picnic lunch. While we were at the cheese factory there were also a bunch of classic cars on site. Since it was such a nice day we opted to ride on to the Point Reyes Lighthouse. Stopped for fuel in Point Reyes Station. Wayne & Penny opted not to ride to the lighthouse....considering the awful road it was a good choice on Wayne's part.
Aside from a road that rivals the awful roads in Lake County, it was great weather and lovely vistas. On arriving at the lighthouse parking lot Susan, Margaret and Suzanne opted to stay while the remainder of the group hiked the 350+ steps down to the lighthouse (after walking up 1/4 of a mile).
When we rode away from the lighthouse it was decided to head north on Highway 1 to a point that would take us to Sebastopol....thanks to Larry's handy GPS we took back country roads over to Sebastopol and then up 101 to home.
A very nice (nearly 250 mile) ride!
