Links to maps and cue sheets for some favorite rides within an hour or two drive of Davis/Winters.
Cyclists from all over pay lots of money to touring companies who will guide them through the Napa and Sonoma wine country, up and and down the northern California coast, and around Gold Country or into the high Sierras. These beautiful backroads are all available to you any day of the year, for the bargain price of perhaps an hour or two in the car.
We’ve compiled some of these not-so-local ride ideas into a sortable table format, with links to maps, cue sheets, and elevation profiles. We have covered most these roads on solo rides and on club rides or tours. Some of them are classics; some of them may not be familiar to you yet. All are worth exploring and re-exploring.
