The January 2018  Napa Zodiac is the 9th, 10th, and 11th. There are two motel options. 
1. Chablis Inn, 3360 Solano Ave., phone #(707)257-1944.  Nightly rates are $99++ for a king and $109++ for two queens.  Be sure to tell them you are with the Sacto Wheelmen for the 72 hour cancellation.
2. Motel 6, 3380 Solano Ave, phone #707-257-6111.  Nightly rates are $70.10++ for a King and $80.10++ for two queens.  This is the senior rate and they have a 72 hour cancellation.
On the 9th you can start in Sacramento (no sag unless you drop off the day before) or in Winters in the municipal parking lot in downtown. There will be a sag there. If you park your car in Winters, notify the local Police Department and give them the license number of your vehicle.  You can also drive to Napa and start riding back to meet the riders coming from Winters.  The distance from Sacramento is about 85 miles, and the distance from Winters is about 52. The ride to Winters is flat. The section between Winters and the Silverado Trail is hilly with several long climbs. Once you arrive at the Silverado Trail it returns to flat. The middle day will be about 50 miles or shorter and it will be mostly flat unless you decide to do some optional climbing.  We will talk about the options at the social hour on Tuesday.
We will head back to Winters on the 11th or you can ride locally and then drive home.
Across the street from the Chablis Inn or Motel 6, there is a pizza restaurant, the Squeeze Inn (which is the local hamburger joint) and a gourmet grocery store. They have a huge variety of wines and beers. The Red Hen Cantina is a very good Mexican restaurant for dinner just up the street. There are also lots of local restaurants if you want to explore.   We will provide soft drinks and munchies. You are on your own tab for wine and beer.  The Bicycle Works is right next to the pizza place for those who need or forget some important pieces of equipment.
Please let Mary know that you are going and be sure she has a contact number or e-mail address for you.
