The Usual 30 miles with One Usual Suspect
on the American River Bike Trail
For once, I got to show my triking friend a new thing:. that handsome bicycle overpass thingy at Hazel that I wrote about yesterday.
Here're the pictures I promised.
|Ped-Bike sidewalk down Hazel. Soooo much better than the old one.|
|Quick steep ramp in foreground, long ramp in background|
|A better view of the beautiful long ramp. Summer-brown hills this time of year.|
I'm going to go 20 tomorrow, and I expect I'll be slow like a turtle since I was slow like a turtle at the end of today's ride.
I believe I'll do a short sweet ride on Folsom's bike paths on Friday, picking up a picnic brunch at the Farmer's market. And that will be ride #100! And almost a year of riding.
I tried wearing my old Ex-Officio button down style 'wicking' shirt. OK on the bike, except the long sleeves catch the air, puffing out enough I can't see my mirror, and off the bike just not nice. Felt like a big blue plastic bag. Back to the closet with you! Here's a link to a picture of the shirt.
I've ordered some long sleeved Under Armour shirts in screamingly bright colors. Hope they are satisfactory. I like the red golf shirt I usually wear, but it is short sleeved, and not a terribly visible color.
Speaking of visible, these folks were not on the trail yet, thankfully.
