3 words of advice: Think Dry Thoughts, not dry like prohibition dry either.

2010 was full of liquid cheer, but not the kind they serve at the on route wineries.

As with fine wine, this ride keeps getting better and better. We have more wineries asking to be part of this every year.

One of the cooler things we do for you, is that if you purchase any wine or other merchandise during your ride, we'll shuttle it back to the start/finish for you.

I am in, just signed up the two of us. See how far we get, was planning on the shorter ride and making all stops for "hydration". Now that it is one distance we'll see.

Stopping in the PM to view the Sandhill Crane migration west of Lodi is quite spectacular, too

We'll ride it provided the weather looks good once we get a forecast 15 days out. DW and I don't deliberately ride in the rain!

Highly likely. That's me on the right, and there aren't that many NorCal jackets in the world. Something like... one.

More wineries added this year. Lunch during the ride and dinner afterwards. It's going to be a great ride...

The route map is now up for the sole 75k offering. Are the tastings at the wineries free? Last time I rode this I thought it was only the tasting at the finish that was free w/ cool glass. I am also looking at riding my SS experiment, if it is ready by then.

75K isn't worth the gas (diesel) to get there unless you're into wine. I'm sure they used to offer at least a 100K.

It is a benefit ride for FUN. Get lost a couple of times if you need the K's.

Actually, we've had "third thoughts" and will do the ride unless the weather tanks. We do have a history of getting lost, turned the Marin 100K into the Marin 95 miler, so no problem getting lost on this one. And, as an added thought, we drive to Palm Springs to do a 100K so on a ratiometric basis driving to Acampo for 46 miles looks like a very good deal (even though we don't drink wine).

Jeez those guys are handsome!

With shorter mileage and even more wineries on the route than last year, Curtis you'll have a harder time tasting at each one. 3 tasting stops in the first 8.5 miles!

This is a nice easy and fun way to end the organized ride season, so I'm in again.

We skipped only one winery last year, and bought at every one we stopped at. It was our most expensive ride of the year, and big time fun.

Okay, I'm in. I don't know if that is an inducement to go or an inducement to pass, but I leave that to you.

Now that I have a new commuter bike (complete with fenders!) that's fun to ride, I even have a rain plan!
If the skys threaten at all I'm bringing this, rack and all, but without the bags... or coffee.

But's it the Giro d;VINO... There's no law that says you have to put coffee in that thermos.

Sweet commuter by the way!

I'm in, registered last night as I checked the weather for the 4th and it shows to be great as it's in the 70's for that day. Looking forward to it. I did this last year at the last minute as it rained the day before and I didn't make the call until the morning of it. In 2010 it rain hard as I sat it out. I did it in 2009 and had a hell of a time as the weather was excellent and we had a big group.

I'm wondering how close we're getting to the maximum of 600 riders since Sunday will almost be pushing high 70 degrees.
