Hurray. This morning, Thais went trail running and Lenin went to play golf.
In the afternoon, I did my first-ever social ride with SABA. We met at Insight Coffee at 8th & S Streets in downtown Sacramento.
Deb Banks introduced David Sobon, CEO of Wide Open Walls, who led a tour some some of this year’s artists at work. About 50 people were ready to ride despite temperatures in the mid-90s.
This was such a different ride for me – herding cats comes to mind. Not many helmets. Two guys with loud portable speakers on their backs played music as we rode – turned off when David spoke at the various stops. Other riders blocked traffic at intersections so everyone could ride through regardless of the sign or signal.

Luckily, we were about 2 miles from home when the bolt that attached the seat to the seat post snapped. Jane was able to ride home standing up – amazingly strong legs is what that is!
Friday September 10. Barbara, Rupert, Jeorgianna, Cheryl, and Leo (Brian showed up after the photo was taken):
I was up early this morning to get ready for this annual charity bike ride with the Good Jibes team. We met in Penryn at 7:45 for our team picture.
Back row: Charlie, William, Kathy, Bruce, Diane, Dani, Jonathan. Front row: Michelle, Amal, me, Steven, Becky, Mellissa. I rode the short route which turned out to be 22 miles because I missed a couple of turns and had to backtrack. It was way more hilly than riding around N Natomas and Sacramento – challenging but fun.
#8 taking the ball down the field:
Carson scored 3 of the 4 goals for his team. A very nice start to the season!
Oh joy. I have missed quite a few Th@Ms so today was quite special. Old favorites: Artichoke dip and Shrimp black bean avocado salsa. And wine.

After being gone for over 5 months, it sure feels good to get together with friends. Kathy, Linda, Adrienne and I met at Boudin’s in Roseville on Friday.
The Good Jibes Only team got together on Thursday night at Chicago Fire in downtown Sacramento.
Followed by a little shopping at Fleet Feet across the street:
