Monday, March 26th
I decided to go West on the American River Trail from Sunrise today. Just to get out and ride.
I had gone about 5 miles, then it started getting more overcast and the cold wind started blowing. My little lizard brain screamed "rain! rain! rain!" so I turned around and started back.
silly lizard brain!
But I had a good ride anyway. Saw one other recumbent (two wheels) and an interesting electric assist bicycle in cheerful yellow operated by Brian. We had a nice geek-fest over unusual bikes and took each others' pictures.
A few clumps of riders intent on beating the weather and a lot of big slow bold turkeys.
I checked out Rossmoor Bar, down by the river,
|Somewhere out there is the river|
and noticed that the access road crossed what looks to me like the old route for the bike path. I know that the path had been rerouted in the past in places farther down stream, but I didn't know it had been moved in other places.

Or maybe I'm all wet.
Despite the lack of rain.
I think maybe I'll go hiking down there someday and see what I can find.
I never did get around to checking the tire or removing the fenders, but I did tighten up the straps on my seat. Less creaking and more solid feeling.
Rain tomorrow, but maybe a ride or two later in the week.
