Where to stay for bike trip?

We are coming to Santa Rosa for 4 nights in October and we are looking for B&Bs/Inns to stay at. We want to do the 'classic' bike rides in the area (60+miles per day). So ideally we are looking for somewhere that is close to where bike shops might be and also offers easy access to the areas to bike- we of course would also like to check out any other attractions and eat at nice restaurants etc..

Anyone have any ideas on the areas that we should be considering and/or any specific places to stay?

Thanks in advance!

I would suggest that you find out where the 'classuc' bike rides begin and the bike shop that you are going to use and then come back and ask for the nearest hotel.

I have never heard of "classic bike rides" in the Santa Rosa area, so if you elaborate on what those may be that would also be helpful. At 60 miles/day can you tell us where they go?

Is this what you are speaking of?

I have heard great things about Hotel La Rose on this site. We were in Santa Rosa this past March and enjoyed wonderful meals at Willi's Wine Bar and John Ash @ The Vintner's Inn. Paradise Ridge, Matanzas Creek and Kendall-Jackson are some places to consider for wine tasting.

Enjoy your time in Santa Rosa! If you are a Charles Schultz fan, there is an incredible museum there you may want to schedule some time for. :)

Hotel La Rose is a very nice historic hotel at the edge of Downtown Santa Rosa in Railroad Square. There's a bike shop named Aria Velo in Railroad Square and, judging from Google, there are several others a short ride away.
