Office Hours

A huge thank-you to Jonathan, Barbara, Cheryl, and Leo (Better on Bikes 1) meeting up with Shila, Stacy, and Jodi (Better on Bikes 2) at Inderkum HS to go on a group ride and practice skills.

University Town Loop

We have found the best west-to-east route across downtown Sacramento. R Street bike/ped ramp over I-5, then jog one block over to Q Street, a one-way street with a protected bike lane.

About to ride across the Guy West Bridge at Sac State. Dani, Leo, Barbara, Cheryl:

We followed the American River Bike Trail back to Discovery Park and home. 29 miles.

Pre-ride

Today I needed to test a route called Tour of W Sacramento. Pre-rides mean you might get lost, have to re-route, maybe meet someone, or re-ride certain sections. Today we started at WaCo,

found 3 Sisters Garden,

met Alfred, the manager of 4 community gardens in W Sacramento,

and rode the paved section of the Clarksburg Branch Trail. A 10-mile route but we rode 26 miles miles altogether.

Thank you Leo, Barbara, and Cheryl for your patience and sense of adventure:

Needless to say, we ROCK!

BoB 1 + BoB 2

This was our first combined bike ride with the participants from Better on Bikes sessions 1 and 2. Some of us rode over to Wild Rose Park and met a few people from BoB 2 who live on the east side of I-5. Then we rode a 10-mile loop. It was great to see everyone getting to know each other, lots of riding tips were shared. Cheryl, Jane, Jonathan, Leo, Terry, Maria, Cathy, Dani, Kathy:
