Your bike rides this week

Sunday June 26. I rode with Brenda, Paul, Lennore, Jim, Terri, and Sarah in N Natomas on the east side of I-5:

Brenda got a flat. Fixing it became a group project, but no one had a tube that would fit so we began discussing the next solution. Brenda was determined to keep riding so she asked her husband to load up her other bike, drive to our location and swap it for the flat-tire bike. Great idea!

A group of us met at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal in time to unload our bikes and purchase a ticket for the 9:20 ferry to San Francisco.

The bikes went down a steep set of stairs (on a narrow metal ramp) to a bike rack.

Next, a climb to get up to ocean side of the bridge – pedestrians use the bay side.

Caution at the blind corners at the bridge towers and stay out of the way if you’re stopped:

A descent into Sausalito for lunch at an Italian deli, Venice, where they let all 9 of us walk our bikes through their store to park in a small enclosed area. Excellent sandwiches, great service!


And then the climbing began. I was so happy to have my e-bike, I was able to keep up and wasn’t completely spent. Thank you Chris and Steven from Arlete’s BIG for joining me on this adventure. Thank you Charlie for inviting me and the everyone in our cycling group. Fantastic ride! Our 31.5-mile route:
