    SANTA ROSA bike commuters. i need some help

    i need to get from the corner of Brush Creek Rd and Montecito..all the way out hwy 12 near Sebastapol.

    can i do this on a bike? i can ride (not afraid of climbing), just want the safest route..since some of it might be dusk/dawn.

    looking at bike coalitions right now for help.

    i dont have much time to do a dry run before showing up at my new office mid march.

    Second on using the Bike option on Google maps whenever your not sure.

    That said, I would go from Montecito and hit the brush creek bike path and follow it all the way around until you turn left Yulupa Ave. Stay on Yulupa for few blocks then turn right onto Sonoma Ave. Follow Sonoma Ave until you turn right onto Mendocino Ave for a block and then hit the Prince Memorial Green way until circling up and over the bridge onto the Joe Rodata trail all the way out to Sebastapol.

    Make sure you also take a look at the Open Cycle Map. They've got some data on bike infrastructure that Google lacks.

    This.

    I've never heard of this source, but sometimes Google lacks a better route, or wants you to ride down a very narrow county highway with a speed limit of 45 mph (and drivers going 55-60 mph). That is just not feasible and it's sort of on you to learn your area well enough to know that you can get away with biking an extra half mile to not do that kind of thing.

    Sorry, definitely not Santa Rosa bike commuter, but it's something important to note when gittin' yer googler goin', 'naw mean?

    Just wanted to add that the route I described is via first hand experience. I live and commute in SR. While I don't commute that route I live right by where the OP wants to start and have used the route to get to Sebastopol.
