Course Description

Start/Finish: The start/finish line will be less than 1/2 mile south on Pleasants Valley Road near Putah Creek Road. This is a hill so don’t kill yourself warming up on the trainer. This course travels on Pleasants Valley Road south to Vaca Valley Road. Racers will then turn east (left) on Vaca Valley Rd, and then prepare to turn-around in this straight section of road. Racers will then hit the gas and bomb back to the finish line. This road is a local favorite, with a false incline/decline at the mid-point making for some very fast speeds, beautiful scenery, and no signal controls. This route is approximately 18 miles of fair to excellent pavement, feature curves and small rollers.

Driving Directions

Lake Solano Recreation Area is located at 8685 Pleasants Valley Road, Winters, CA. From I-505 in Winters, take SR-128 towards Lake Berryessa. Follow SR-128 to Pleasants Valley Road, then turn left on Pleasants Valley Rd and a quick left into the recreation area. There is a store right on the corner should you need any refreshments or you need to fill your bottles. PLEASE NOTE: There is a $5 parking fee to get into the park. Parking outside the park is limited and those being creative could result in a citation. Be sure to bring the family, crank up the BBQ, and feed the ducks!
