This fun ride starts at BikePartners Bike Shop in Historic Railroad Square in Santa Rosa. From there we jump right on the Prince Memorial Greenway bike path, cross the creek on a dedicated bike bridge, then zip along the Joe Rodota Trail to Sebastopol. Named after a former Sonoma County Parks Dept. Director, the Joe Rodota Trail is a 'rail trail', formerly an electric railway. Flat as a pancake. From Sebastopol we pass by The Barlow shops and restaurants, through the Analy High School grounds, then onto another rail trail westward and north. 
BikePartners Bike Shop is your starting point.
A stop at Andy's Produce will get you a good discount on a cup of coffee if you tell them you rode a bike. A short hop on Occidental Road to re-connect to the West County Trail, meander through the town of Graton, then back on the trail to Forestville. A nice little town to grab a meal or snacks. The Russian River is just on the edge of town if you are up for a bit of hill climbing.
Don't miss stopping at Andy's Produce!
Check out Russian River Cycles shop in Forestville.
