Brenda, BarbaraL and I rode in from N Natomas. Because Discovery Park was closed due to flooding, our safest choice to get across the river was Highway 160. We used the on ramp from Northgate Blvd, took the lane while 45 mph-traffic moved left to go around us. Being Sunday morning, there wasn’t a lot of traffic. Just after crossing the river, we were able to move right onto a Class IV cycle track onto 12th St. We met at Drip Espresso at 24th & J Streets.
At 10:30, the ride began: a tour of murals created by and featuring women.
Jibe invited me to this annual event put on by the Chamber of Commerce. Many speakers shared upcoming projects and ideas for the future. Mayor Steinberg, State Senator Angelique Ashby, Councilmembers Lisa Kaplan and Karina Talamontes, and leaders from many local agencies.
Councilmember Lisa Kaplan, me, Lisa Pray/North Natomas Community Coalition, Mateo Ramirez-Mercado/District 1 Director. I work with Lisa and Mateo as the District 1 Active Transportation Commissioner.

in the City of Sacramento Council Chambers.
