Mines Road / Junction / Lick Observatory – A curvy Homoto Learning Experience

Due to the fires in Sonoma and Napa counties and related smoke we changed this ride for more breathable air going east and beyond the Bay Area mountain range, and up on top.  

Following up on our educational ride training and skill building exercises in order to improve safe riding habits, this 100 mile ride covers 

• Ergonomic riding positions 

• Safely braking into corners

• Confident cornering in wide and tight turns
