This is a very cool area to ride. US 128 and 121 are both fun roads to ride with lots of twists and turns. I just got back from riding Berryesa-Knoxville Rd for the first time. From the 128 turn off at Turtle Rock Cafe to where you cross Lake Berryesa, the road is very good and the views are great. Things deteriorate quickly once you leave the lake. The road is in terrible shape for about 15-20 miles. It felt more like off roading at times as plodded along dodging potholes that were lurking in the shadows and were hard to see. My wife and I agreed that this ride was a "one and done" for us.

Next time I will stay on 128. Loop through the Pope Valley area. This ends up looping back to 128, but the road is much better and you can drive the twisties at speed.
