Bike fun on way to Dry Creek Geyserville area?

I'm leaving Antioch for Geyserville in a few minutes (Sat, Jan 24) . We're picking up wine!
But it's a long drive just for that.

I there a bike store or outlet or anything worth going to anywhere near there, or on the way up 101?

I'll take my laptop, find a wi-fi spot and check in sometime around 1pm.

I can recommend a great little cafe (Bovolo) up in Healdsburg if you want some food. Or a nice restaurant in Forestville (Mosaic)

www.mosaiceats.com - (be sure to check out the "Backyard" menu also by clicking the work backyard on the upper left of the frame, some great stuff there on the outdoor grille)

http://www.bovolorestaurant.com/ - at the BACK of Cooperfields books, the Bovolo burger is TO DIE FOR!


P.S if you go to Healdsburg town square (where Bovolo is) then you should definitely take the time to stop in at "Williamson Wines" 2 stores past Oakville Grocery.

Stop in Healdsburg and take your sweetie for a stroll around the downtown. You can also swing by the bike shop there (right in downtown). It's called Spoke Folk and they even have some tandems to rent (for your next trip up there).

There's a bike store on the way up. I think you can see it on the right side of 101, I know it's before Windsor.

Thanks all. We're home now with several cases of wine!
Wine tasting takes longer than... well, longer than I thought it would.
We made it by Spoke Folk and had lunch at the Oakville Grocery.
We didn't go to Williamson Wines because by the time we got to town we were all wined out.
