Bike rides this week

Saturday: many loops in the neighborhood. There were five rides offered all starting at Red Sea & Hovnanian. The first was 2.5 miles, then came a two 4-mile rides and two 6-mile rides. Total = 23 miles. The pace was slower and riders could stop when they wanted. One of our rides had 6 riders!

Sunday: American River Bike Trail, 20 miles out-and-back. We rode to Discovery Park and “turned left” onto the trail. Turning right takes you to Old Sac. This was fun with a group of very strong riders. In this picture, we’d ridden past the trail exit (up and over the levee) to Costco/REI to the curve as the trails goes under I-80 – our turn-around point.

Wednesday: Cherry Island Golf and Soccer = 29 miles. A new route for our riding group. We rode down Del Paso Rd to the Sacramento Northern Bike Trail going north toward Rio Linda. The Dry Creek Parkway Trail took us behind Cherry Island Golf Course to U Street and the Cherry Island Soccer Fields.

Standing: Kathy, Cheryl, Barbara. Seated: Dani, Jonathan

Thursday: Tour d’Arlete = 15 miles.

Just so you don’t think we slacked off on Monday and Tuesday: 25-mph north winds, gusting to 40, meant no bike riding. Total this week = 104 miles.
