Enjoyed our day with Randy exploring the downhill portion of the Mickelson trail. Easy ride at your own pace. He explained what we would see and encounter as we did the two sections of the trail chosen. We went to the winery but the kitchen is closed on Tues and Wed so he drove us to another lunch location. Kids 9 and 14 had fun!
