Day 3 – The Shortest Route Is 28, The Longest Is 60 Miles Of Heartache!

26 Sep

Dear Readers,


If lounging and sleeping is what you like, 

then stay in bed, for Day 3 will be a painful hike. 


Breakfast at 7am at the Big 3 Diners. 

“Route Talk” by the trailer, no room for whiners!


Luggage packed and placed by the door,

with aching muscles we’re ready for more.


We are given five riding options, 

none are for the weak or meek!


For this is Day 3 as I said,

and we’re only here for one glorious week!


The shortest route is 28,

the longest is 60 miles of heartache!


One by one we choose our mile count,

onward and upward, our bikes we mount!


We will be heading west towards the beautiful ocean! Up and out of Sonoma,

through the town of Santa Rosa, 

along a creekside bike path-a,

 all 14 of us arriving at Bodega Bay-a…And all rhymed out! (as if you couldn’t tell)


 But before arriving at our next Inn to take our helmets off, placing our heads down on our well-earned pillows, we will first learn about the Lavender Gardens at Matanzas Creek Winery, enjoying yet another scrumptious gourmet picnic lunch (thank you Mason, Courtney and Mark) over looking the beautiful Lavender Gardens. 

Please see photos below…





A little tidbit of information for your memory files,

It takes about two to three weeks to completely dry lavender and then it is used in many products as well as wines! Lavender is supposed to calm anxiety!


Asklotta and staff is MINDING YOUR BUSINESS today completely anxiety-free with a delicious scented lavender hand lotion spiced with pumpkin and vanilla! Yummy!


Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!


Kindest regards,




President and CEO
