Classic Bike Rides in Northern California

Apr 20, 2014

  Northern California offers an abundance of scenic and challenging routes for bicyclists.  Now a local rider and writer has collected 75 of the best between the covers of a new guidebook.

The 75 rides in Oetinger's book are organized by seven geographic regions in Northern California

  When it came time to winnow down the possible rides to just 75 (a number not strictly adhered to, if you count the various multi-day rides and those with several options), Oetinger says that one occasional criterion was the condition of the roadway itself.

Bill Oetinger will talk about his cycling guidebook at Copperfield’s in Santa Rosa Tuesday evening, April 22, night at six pm.
