We will be staying in Guerneville for a couple of days over Thanksgiving. Anyone know of some good rides in that area? Shorter is better, because I will mostly be hanging out with the family. Think 1-2 hours, rather than the typical Gladiator epic.
I haven't biked up there but Sweetwater Springs road is really nice on a motorcycle! You could do a loop of that road plus Westside and River road and looks like that would be about 24 miles. I have no idea what the road quality is like or how much traffic there is. I do remember that Sweetwater Springs was a bit like the bottom half of west Alpine road on the SF Peninsula if you've ever ridden that. It's a bit narrow and follows a stream that is overgrown with thick gnarled old trees. At motorcycle speeds it feels like you're blasting through a tunnel in the jungle but should be scenic on a bike too
