Stage 2: Millbrae to Napa

Great day for the start of the trip. We needed to be at the BART station for the 9AM departure to get to the ferry to Vallejo at the north end of the bay, about a ride of an hour.

By the time we all got on our bikes and ready to go, it was about 11AM. As we rode down the Georgia St in Vallejo there was a street fair that we need to navigate our way through as we found our way out of town heading north.

The roads at first was pretty busy at first, but as we continued north the route was able for the most part put us on to residential streets with less traffic.

Lunch was at about the 20 mile mark, which provided a nice break before the file leg up to Mt Veeder that was about a 1000 foot climb with some nice grades. Not as steep or long as Kings Road yesterday, but enough to know that you're working pretty hard. At the top, the road did a U turn that headed back to Napa where we're staying for the night.

Tomorrow we're heading for winery for lunch so the group is looking forward the the ride.

Happy Biking,
