From Sac to Calistoga-
We rode through Davis and basically took CA128 all the way there.

Calistoga to Bodega Bay-
Took Petrified Forest road to Franz Valley School Rd, to Mark West Springs/Porter which turned into River road all the way to hwy 1 and took hwy 1 south

Bodega Bay to China camp-
Took hwy 1 through Point Reyes Station to Sir Francis Drake rd through Fairfax/San Rafael to San Pedro Dr

China Camp to Santa Rosa-
Rode up to Novato, to hwy 37 (scary for about 5 miles) to Lakeville hwy to Petaluma Hill straight to Santa Rosa

Santa Rosa to Sac-
Took CA12 East to Trinity Rd (brutal climb) to Silverado Trail to CA 121 to CA 128 around Lake Berryessa back through Davis all the way to Sacramento.
