There is a magic place: the border where one dream merges into another.  A place as real as it is magic; the narrow, blurry border where wine country ends and dairy ranches begin.  Where the cheese is as rich and plentiful as the wine, and where both can be bought directly from the rightfully proud producer.  Join us on March 24th to discover this magic.  We will start around noon with a rolling road bike ride across Northern California's endlessly alluring hills, moving from one agricultural zone to another.  After the ride, we will reconvene for a gentle yoga class and then enjoy a sumputous dinner together between the vines of a beautiful, family-owned vineyard.

Tickets include a gourmet 5-course dinner.  Complimentary wine and beer provided throughout the entire meal.

Also included:

  • Guided road bike
  • 45-minute yoga class
  • Gourmet riding nutrition (courteous of our favorite, THUNDERBIRD bars)
  • Changing accommodations (we know you want to get pretty, and more importantly warm after the ride).
  • Gratuities
  • New friends!

Detailed information, including the menu and cycling route, will be sent 72 hours in advance of the event.

    Nic is our master cycling guide.  Also known as "Thunder" for his tree trunk-like quads made for charging up climbs, Nic is a master of humor, tire changes, and most importantly, appreciating what everyone brings to the table. From time to time, he plays at being corporate attorney. When he's not on a bike, he's likely planning a bike (or ski) adventure.

    If there are two things Jeremy is good at, its bikes and exploring.  In addition to racing cyclecross for many years, he put his engineering skills to work teaching a bike-building class at Stanford.  Ok, he's also really good at fixing things and yes, he did build the bike he'll be on.  He's traveled around the world eeking out the world's best beer and brings a sense of discovery to every adventure - near or far.
