St. Helena rides?

Hey all,

Heading to St. Helena this weekend and looking to get some hilly miles in. Any recommendations on rides you like?

Thanks!

Pope Street east to Silverado Trail then south to Deer Park Rd/Howell Mt rd, climb to Angwin, east on Howell Mt rd (There are a couple of tight off camber corners on the decent,) Rt on Pope-Chiles rd, Left on Pope-Chiles cross road, Rt on Hwy-128 to Lake Hennesey and Silverado Trail Rd. Rutherford Cross Road back across to Hwy 29 and north to St Helena.
You can also go over Oakville Grade to the Sonoma Valley or Spring Mt rd into Santa Rosa.
Check out the Monticello and Napa Valley Century courses for some other options.

I think Oakville grade is kind of mandatory. It's better later in the summer when the biting flies help you keep your speed up.
