Any good short rides or climbs starting in or very near Sebastopol?

Like the title says, I am looking for some quick rides (10-20 miles RT) or nice hard climbs starting in or very near Sebastopol. Will be up there with family and would like to get a ride or two in, but will have very limited time (an hour or so would be ideal). I will have my car, but would prefer to leave right from there to be back in an hour. Thanks for any tips.

Ride West toward Occidental and up Coleman Valley to the top for a splendid view to the Pacific. Beautiful. You have the option to go down to sea level but the climb back is a challenge, I am sure you are up to this though.

Quick climbs Sebastopol

Try Harrison Grade off Green Valley. Graton Rd (westbound) from Graton to Occidental, return to Graton via Occidental Rd, now going (eastbound). Harrison is steepest, Graton is moderate grade and takes about 20-25 minutes to climb. Occidental is rollers. Many other short punchy hills thereabouts.
