[edit] Location

Intersection of Sievers Road and Granett Lane. If you were to draw a diagonal line between Dixon and Winters, this is in the center, though Google tells me it's in the city of Winters. Also approximately 13 miles southwest of Davis.

[edit] Plans

To tell the truth, I had no plans coming in. I have been following this site for a while, but have never been up for biking to Lodi (I'm not good enough to bike 100+ miles in one stretch). This was the closest one that I've seen for a while, so I decided to go for it!

[edit] Expedition

I left UC Davis heading west on Russell Blvd. I was able to utilize the nice bike path on Russell between Davis and Winters.

I turned left on County Road 95A. I crossed Stevenson Bridge (aka Graffiti Bridge) across Putah Creek and into Solano County and Stevenson Bridge Road. While continuing on Stevenson Bridge Road, I passed by the Wednesday Night Time Trials.

When Stevenson Bridge Road ended I turned right on Sievers Road. Then I stayed on that road until I hit Granett Lane.

Granett Lane is a small dirt road that leads to a farm. The location was technically a few hundred meters west of the road, but that was behind one of the farm buildings, a place that I did not want to go.
