A few updates for this Sunday's KVBC ride from the Cellar Door Winery: we are informed that the Winery might not be open for us to have access to restrooms and water until after the ride start, so plan for alternatives. Also, the ride announcement did not provide any terrain description: the route is quite hilly in sections, particularly around the Camden Hills and the wonderfully-named Moody Mountain. Expect your mood to be uplifting - it is a very pretty ride!
