The April 25 meeting will be at Napa-Bothe State Park group camp, 3 miles south of Calistoga off Hwy 29. The ride will start at the Dipsea Café, 200 Shoreline Hwy, Mill Valley; breakfast at 8:00, depart at 9:00. This will be another “I’ve been everywhere” ride, hitting some of my favorite little roads across 3 ranges of hills. The Bothe group camp does not include the covered “ramada” (Spanish for a sun shelter made of branches) area on the lower level, and I declined reserving it since this is not a catered event. But the park manager has given us permission to hold our meeting there for free, provided it is unoccupied. We can’t cook or camp there. (I can personally recommend Buster’s BBQ, 3 miles north in Calistoga.) Bikes at the group camp must park in the associated lot.
Camping for members: $10
Camping for guests: $20
