Vallejo to Rutherford Metric Century

Time for a big ride on a nice Sunday morning.  I rode solo and headed out to Napa.  I wasn't really sure where I wanted to go.  Whenever I go to Napa, I just wing my rides and decide last minute.  At first, I was just thinking I would ride to Yountville.  I felt good riding through Silverado Trail on the way to Yountville so I extended my route to Rutherford.  I hopped on to HWY 29 going north to Rutherford.  It was my first time riding this route.  The roads were smooth until I got to Rutherford.  I headed north a bit toward St. Helena but couldn't take the harsh roads so I made my way back towards Napa.  I crossed on over to Silverado Trail and went on my usual route back to Napa.  By the time I got to the Napa airport, I felt pretty pooped.  This was my first long ride in a while.  I really need to spend more time in the Napa Valley instead of the East Bay.  The only thing I don't like as much is the flat terrain.  I will soon conquer the hills of Napa!
