Just over 62 miles, ride starting in the beautiful rolling vineyards of drycreek. We will head north to the climb up to Lake Sonoma, whish is where the SR ironman Starts. We will then ride 35 miles of the course leaving out some of the high traffic boring areas in santa rosa. We will see the climbs and descents. Anyone that wants to skip the first 15 miles and trhe climb can ride in the van to the start of the course and do closer to a 40 mile ride. We will have the van out on course for rest stops and support.
