From August 12th to August 19th we had the privilege of being in the company of 14 Rotarian’s riding their bikes from Crescent City California all the way to Petaluma. The journey would take us over 300 miles and would take 6 days. The dedicated cadre of Rotarian bike riders, as well as those who followed in the SAG wagons had a common goal,”End Polio Now!” The money raised was matched 2:1 by fellow Rotarians, Bill and Melinda Gates. On Days 5&6 other riders joined us and more than 30 rode into the finish line in Petaluma. We proudly share some of the insights of this ride with you in the following videos. We will also include the highlights video that has been posted on the Petaluma Rotary channel.
P4P Pedal For Polio, Day 1, Crescent City to Trinidad, Bike Ride
On Day 1 we rode from Crescent City to Trinidad – great hosts, staff, riders and everyone had a fantastic day with glorious weather. If you’d like to watch us entertain you, check out our video here (minute 13-20 for a polio perspective)
Canoeing on the Russian River in the Autumn with our Siberian Husky – now what could be better than that? But wobbling and water fights could cost us losing our camera gear! No matter, when you are staying at the beautiful Casini Ranch, be sure to rent one of their canoes (or kayak, paddleboard inner tube, etc). And Casini is certainly the “disneyland” for campers and RVers alike with movie nights, ice cream socials, hayrides, nearby hiking trails, beach swimming, playgrounds (soccer, softball, volleyball, horseshoe throwing), rent pedal carts/golf carts/bikes, game room with arcades and pool table, general store, dog run/play area, etc. Their WiFi is average.
By the way, the Casini staff is very helpful and friendly.
In our first of two segments travelling up the Russian River, we enjoyed an awesome RV getaway at the SPECTACULAR Casini Ranch Park and Campground. We also checked out the ever eclectic Guerneville, the majestic Northwood Golf Course deep in the Redwoods, and Kozlowski Farm specialty food store on our way to Sebastopol. Be sure to also check out our outrageous canoe trip on the Russian River on our next segment!
