Today 17 cyclists pedaled 200 miles. I think this is the most miles and the most varied participation for Arlete’s BIG on a single day so far. And such nice stories for each of the rides.
Over the past 3 months, Paul, Brenda, Jim, and Lennore (BoB4) have been slowly building up how far they can ride. Today, they challenged themselves with a ride to Old Sac. They had a good route but were a bit unsure since it was the first time they were riding it. Leo (BoB4) was able to go at the last minute. He’s such an encouraging person, I knew they would have a great time. Paul, Brenda, and Jim started on the east side of I-5. Leo, Agueda (BoB4), Lennore, Natalie and Evan started on the west side. Everyone met at the bike/pedestrian bridge that goes over I-80.
Thank you Dani for organizing the first-ever trike ride. There were 12 people – a very good turnout. We rode 4 routes, each one started and ended at the Four Seasons Lodge. Based on ability, riders could opt out at the end of each segment. The segments were 2.0, 1.3, 2.5, 3.0 miles. Thanks Jonathan for taking this picture:
After riding 25 miles by herself early Sunday morning, Barbara later rode 4 miles with her grandson Vince.
When a group of cyclists from Arlete’s BIG attended Jibe’s Meet and Greet at Track 7 on July 13 and Dennis Spear, N Magazine publisher, was also there, I thought “Cool, maybe our picture will be in the Bits ‘n Pieces section.” And it was.
