They say it’s not the destination but the journey that’s important.
But when your destination is a winery, the saying may not be completely
accurate. We took a sunny Saturday to venture out to Sylvan
Ridge/Hinman Winery on a 46 mile bike jaunt that included the Fern
Ridge Bike Path, Doane Hill, Briggs Hill, the Coyote Creek covered
bridge and a number of wildflower decorated roadways in S.W. Eugene.
Lunch at the vineyard was the high point, featuring complimentary
tastes of the current vintages and good conversation among the four
attending bikers. I think that Darrell McBee, Peter Graham, potential
member Art Satner and I all agree, it was a primo ride!
