Meet at Alexander Valley Elementary School at 9:00am. Leaving the school, we will head west on Highway 128, turn right on Red Winery Rd, then right again on Highway 128 and into Geyserville. From there we will head north on Highway 128/Healdsburg Ave to Cloverdale. Once there will we follow River Road about 16 miles, turn right onto Geysers Road, then climb 2 miles to the micro Hamlet of Mercuryville (population 2+). We will then descend about 14 miles back down to Red Winery Road, turn left and head back to the Alexander Valley Elementary School. This ride is about 51 miles with 4,000 feet of climbing.
This is the easier direction to do this loop. Once we leave Cloverdale, there are no supply points for food or water, so bring what you need.
