Great ride thru wine country, farms, and into forests with a beautiful loop around the lake. Starts on highway with good wide bike lanes and paths. Wine tasting has increased price to at least $7 for 5 tastes (no glass; $10 gets glass but hard to carry on bike), but had live music on Memorial Day weekend. Beautiful views from the tasting room and picnic tables to enjoy from outside. Old Highway 47 lacks bike trails, but traffic was light. Hills around lake are more than indicated on map. There are about 4 200 to 300 foot elevation climbs that reward you with nice down slope glides. Recommend going clockwise around lake as map recommends to get the benefits of the views and gets the largest climbs done in the first third of the lake loop.
