Our final class for this season. 5 of 8 were riding after 1 1/2 hours. Huge thanks to our volunteers tonight: Lennore, Kathy, and Paul.
Monthly Archives: May 2023
First up, Carson using a rectangular pillow as a bat.
After 3 outs had been determined with a lot of negotiation, Avery was up. He prefers a short, thin, wooden bat.
B Street Theater
Cindy, Terri and I had brunch at Cafe Bernardo before the play.
A very good play, even though we all walked out with tears in our eyes.

MiBM celebration ride
Three separate groups met at Peregrine Park .. in the shade.
16 riders – the biggest group I’ve ever led. Thankfully, there were many who had taken a Jibe class with me and I encouraged them to give group riding tips when needed.
Starting out, the bridge over a creek,
and then up and over I-80.
Bike path along Garden Highway almost to Discovery Park.
Crossing the Tower Bridge over the Sacramento River, taking the lane.
There was a huge party at Bike Dog Brewing in W Sacramento sponsored by SABA and REI to celebrate the closing days of May is Bike Month.
Thank you REI for buying all REI members (me) a beer.
Gina – friend. fellow LCI, and the designer and creator for Gadget Girl Goods:
Time to head back.
On the boardwalk in Old Sacramento. 8 miles to go.
Great ride. We made some new friends, had a great time and rode 25 miles.

There was some extra celebration because the Brewers were down by several runs but came back in bottom of the 9th inning to win by one run.
Carson got the game ball because in the previous game, he was “hit in the noggin.” By this game, he was ready to play pitcher again (standing beside the pitching machine) and his head only hurt when he raised his eyebrows.
Pedal Up Natomas – meeting 1
Two weeks ago, we were rained out so today was our first class. We met at Inderkum High School. Lennore, Brenda and Terri volunteered to help today. All of these pictures were taken by Lennore or Brenda (therefore you will see more of me than usual).
A few bike handling drills just to make sure everyone is street-ready.
We practiced doubling up, communicating and leaving limit line at the same time.
On-street instruction to prepare for individual left turns.
Great job everyone!
The Bicycle Nomad
Many people rode their bikes to REI for a presentation by Erick Cedeno.
Erick Cedeno has bicycle-toured from Vancouver BC to Tijuana MX, followed the Underground Railroad from New Orleans to Niagara Falls, and followed the trail of two bicycle expeditions by the USArmy in 1896 and 1897 by 20 black soldiers from Fort Missoula to St Louis. A very interesting presentation.
