Good advice her on the steep hills. I got to the bottom of the long run on the other side of the dam, having passed a couple of cars, only to discover two very low tires. A bit scary, as I had gone down on loose gravel in Woodland only a couple of weeks earlier. But, a beautiful ride, even more challenging in the heat of summer. --["Users/MichaelCrutcher"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Bicycle Rideshttp://daviswiki.org/Bicycle_Rides2012-11-30 11:34:47justincox22Looking for woman who helped badly injured rider on Cantelow last weekend <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Bicycle Rides<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 141: </td> <td> Line 141: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2012-11-30 10:26:00'' [[nbsp]] A guy who I went to high school with wrecked badly on Cantelow last weekend, suffering a burst fracture of T10 vertebrata, 14 broken ribs and a fracture to a vertebrata in his neck.

One day while using google maps and the bicycling layer to show bike routes I noticed that just outside of Winters on Quail Canyon Rd there is a "trail" shown heading up into the Putah Creek Wildlife area. Using the satellite function it shows a fire road (or some dirt road of some sort) heading up into that area with many more roads beyond (not shown as "trails" on the map but can be seen on the satellite view). So on our recent house hunting trip down there we drove out to Quail Canyon rd to take a look and there was a nasty sign saying something about: "Warning! Private Property! Only property owners and their invited guests permitted blah blah blah..." So my question is, it appears someone put that trail/road into googlemaps so I assume people are riding it? Does anyone know the story on this? Thanks for any info and I am excited to explore all of the great biking in our new home. --["Users/JJasonGraff"] </td> <td> <span>+</span> ''2012-07-03 13:59:25'' [[nbsp]] My wife and I are re-locating to Davis from Seattle and I've been doing some research online of the riding locally (both mountain and road).

I wouldn't expect to maintain a 20mph average unless you're fairly hardcore, and even then, you'll probably want a shower when you get to campus (and a change of clothes). 16mph is entirely reasonable if you're on a road bike, or even a good hybrid. Anyway, it can be done, but.... I don't think it's good to plan on it. At least look into alternatives for days that you just don't feel like biking, or when the weather is too nasty (I think there is a bus that goes to Woodland IIRC). P.S.: You'll want to take the route east of the 113 since it has nice shoulders. All the routes west of the 113 have no real shoulders, and can get some pretty good traffic.

If you've particularly good eyesight (or binoculars), you'll see a collection of antennas near the top of the highest of these mountains. Reputedly one of the steepest paved roads in the continental United States, Mix Canyon Road climbs to these antennas. The low point is at 358 feet, the "summit" is 2717 feet for an approximate average grade of 9% for the whole climb. The five mile climb gets progressively steeper, topping out at a 23% grade (between mile markers 4.3 and 4.4) near the top. Some have likened the climb to the famed [wiki:WikiPedia:Alpe_D%27Huez Alpe d'Huez] of the [wiki:WikiPedia:Tour_de_France Tour de France] (which is twice the distance but "only" reaches a 14% grade). Mix Canyon Road begins at Pleasants Valley Road just south of Cantelow and a bit north of ["Vacaville"]. Much of the climb is half forested along a boulder-strewn stream. The first 3.5 miles is relatively easy (relatively!). Unless you've a [wiki:WikiPedia:Polka_dot_jersey red polka-dotted jersey] somewhere in your closet, you may want to take these miles easy. The first landmark thereafter is known as "two houses". After that you'll climb to a guardrail and a vista where you'll finally see the radio antennas. Once you see these antennas, know that you're almost at the top, so keep going! As the grade of the road eases off, there is a fork in the road. The left is gated and the right a graded gravel road, continue right several hundred yards to gain the high point of the road. From here on a clear day you can see from the Sierra high country to the east, and to the west; Mt. Tam and the north and south towers of the Golden Gate Bridge. Believe it or not, this is not a very fun downhill ride. The road is too steep and twisted to coast for very far without braking. Stopping at the guard rail for the view and a moment to cool your rims is recommended. Traffic is scant here, but drivers are usually using the whole width of the road. The road is seldom wider than twelve feet, is a bit rough in places and the lower miles are often damp. All of these factors coupled with LSD (that<span>s: limited sight distance</span>) make for a very heads up descent. If you start out from Davis, you'll have ridden about 60 miles once you get back. By the way, this is a way, way beyond-category climb. Weighted bragging rights: one minute ascent time per year of age.

From here on a clear day you can see from the Sierra high country to the east, and to the west; Mt. Tam and the north and south towers of the Golden Gate Bridge. Believe it or not, this is not a very fun downhill ride. The road is too steep and twisted to coast for very far without braking. Stopping at the guard rail for the view and a moment to cool your rims is recommended. Traffic is scant here, but drivers are usually using the whole width of the road. The road is seldom wider than twelve feet, is a bit rough in places and the lower miles are often damp. All of these factors coupled with LSD (that<span>'s ''limited sight distance''</span>) make for a very heads up descent. If you start out from Davis, you'll have ridden about 60 miles once you get back. By the way, this is a way, way beyond-category climb.

After a large stack of pancakes (or whatever), you'll immediately climb almost 800 feet. After a descent, turn right on Dry Creek, where you'll climb about 1200 feet in five miles. Once you're on Trinity, you'll descend about five miles. After the descent, cross CA-12, turn left on Dunbar, and right on Arnold. Turn right on Warm Springs, left on Bennett Valley, and left on Sonoma Mountain. These three roads skirt around another major climb. ''(Even if you want to take on the climb, you can't.

If you've particularly good eyesight (or binoculars), you'll see a collection of antennas near the top of the highest of these mountains. Reputedly one of the steepest paved roads in the continental United States, Mix Canyon Road climbs to these antennas. The low point is at 358 feet, the "summit" is 2717 feet for an approximate average grade of 9% for the whole climb. The five mile climb gets progressively steeper, topping out at a 23% grade (between mile markers 4.3 and 4.4) near the top. Some have likened the climb to the famed [wiki:WikiPedia:Alpe_D%27Huez Alpe d'Huez] of the [wiki:WikiPedia:Tour_de_France Tour de France] (which is twice the distance but "only" reaches a 14% grade). Mix Canyon Road begins at Pleasants Valley Road just south of Cantelow and a bit north of ["Vacaville"]. Much of the climb is half forested along a boulder-strewn stream. The first 3.5 miles is relatively easy (relatively!). Unless you've a [wiki:WikiPedia:Polka_dot_jersey red polka-dotted jersey] somewhere in your closet, you may want to take these miles easy. The first landmark thereafter is known as "two houses". After that you'll climb to a guardrail and a vista where you'll finally see the radio antennas. Once you see these antennas, know that you're almost at the top, so keep going! As the grade of the road eases off, there is a fork in the road. The left is gated and the right a graded gravel road, continue right several hundred yards to gain the high point of the road. From here on a clear day you can see from the Sierra high country to the east, and to the west;Mt. Tam and the north and south towers of the Golden Gate Bridge. Believe it or not, this is not a very fun downhill ride. The road is too steep and twisted to coast for very far with-out braking. Stopping at the guard rail for the view and a moment to cool your rims is recommended. Traffic is scant here, but drivers are usually using the whole width of the road. The road is seldom wider than twelve feet, is a bit rough in places and the lower miles are often damp. All of these factors coupled with LSD (thats: limited sight distance) make for a very heads up descent. If you start out from Davis, you'll have ridden about 60 miles once you get back.

If you've particularly good eyesight (or binoculars), you'll see a collection of antennas near the top of the highest of these mountains. Reputedly one of the steepest paved roads in the continental United States, Mix Canyon Road climbs to these antennas. The low point is at 358 feet, the "summit" is 2717 feet for an approximate average grade of 9% for the whole climb. The five mile climb gets progressively steeper, topping out at a 23% grade (between mile markers 4.3 and 4.4) near the top. Some have likened the climb to the famed [wiki:WikiPedia:Alpe_D%27Huez Alpe d'Huez] of the [wiki:WikiPedia:Tour_de_France Tour de France] (which is twice the distance but "only" reaches a 14% grade). Mix Canyon Road begins at Pleasants Valley Road just south of Cantelow and a bit north of ["Vacaville"]. Much of the climb is half forested along a boulder-strewn stream. The first 3.5 miles is relatively easy (relatively!). Unless you've a [wiki:WikiPedia:Polka_dot_jersey red polka-dotted jersey] somewhere in your closet, you may want to take these miles easy. The first landmark thereafter is known as "two houses". After that you'll climb to a guardrail and a vista where you'll finally see the radio antennas. Once you see these antennas, know that you're almost at the top, so keep going! As the grade of the road eases off, there is a fork in the road. The left is gated and the right a graded gravel road, continue right several hundred yards to gain the high point of the road. From here on a clear day you can see from the Sierra high country to the east, and to the west;Mt. Tam and the north and south towers of the Golden Gate Bridge. Believe it or not, this is not a very fun downhill ride. The road is too steep and twisted to coast for very far with-out braking. Stopping at the guard rail for the view and a moment to cool your rims is recommended. Traffic is scant here, but drivers are usually using the whole width of the road. The road is seldom wider than twelve feet, is a bit rough in places and the lower miles are often damp. All of these factors coupled with LSD (thats: limited sight distance) make for a very heads up descent. If you start out from Davis, you'll have ridden about 60 miles once you get back.

Also, if you are foolhardy, you can build up some really impressive speed on the way back down. Just be safe about it; don't go faster than you are comfortable with, because a fall at 50 mph would really suck. This hill is also curvier than some others, so high speed isn't as smart here.

The idea is to stay north of all the traffic, making your way through the hills to Rohnert Park/Santa Rosa. However, due to the hills, it's not an "easy" 150 miles. Bike out to Lake Berryessa and stay on 128 for a long, long way. You'll pass Moskowite Corner, Lake Hennessey, and eventually find the small town of Rutherford. Turn left on CA-29. After passing the Mondavi winery, turn right on Oakville Grade. There's a cafe here that's a good place to gather your breath, as a slew of climbs are about to begin. After a large stack of pancakes (or whatever), you'll immediately climb almost 800 feet. After a descent, turn right on Dry Creek, where you'll climb about 1200 feet in five miles. Once you're on Trinity, you'll descend about five miles. After the descent, cross CA-12, turn left on Dunbar, and right on Arnold.
