Mon Apr-23 Backroads Day 2: 62.3 bike miles, Calistoga, Yountville, Villagio, Hurley's
We headed out on the bikes around 9am, rode to Calistoga for lunch, and then continued on to Yountville. where we checked into the Villagio Inn & Spa for a two night stay. We rode 62.3 miles in 4.6 hours for a 13.5 mph average -- the best of the trip due to few hills and lots of tail winds! We had a surprisingly good dinner at Hurley's Restaurant & Bar in Yountville, accompanied by a glass of 2003 Schramsberg Brut Rose and a bottle of 2003 Gemstone Napa Valley Red. The Schramsberg was pleasant, and the Gemstone was powerfully fruity, if not very sophisticated. After dinner we walked to Bistro Jeanty to meet friends from Napa for coffee.
