Cashing in

9 Nov

#355 / #157

The fruits of my plotting were to incorporate the Johnny Cash trail (Folsom, CA) into our ride today.

New bike trail up to the new Johnny Cash overcrossing. Pretty cool!

We went on Oak Ave trail between Blue Ravine and Natomas St, rode the couple hundred feet on the shoulder to the new center median left turn green painted "bike box" that allows bike and ped traffic to make its way across busy Natomas Rd.

Then it was up over the new overcrossing and down the other side of Folsom Crossing. We'd planned to continue up to Beale's Point, but Red Leader decided that he didn't want to get his heart rate up over 165 anymore times that day.

No worries!

I took us back to the Raley's parking lot via the horrible crossings of the rail-trail that parallels Folsom Blvd. Will use the riverside bike trail next time! I think it would have been about 20 miles if we had gone to Beals and used the riverside bike path.

This is our route with some elevation info (screenshot from Strava - I give up on Google Maps - used to be good for making routes, now stinks like a three day old roadkill skunk).
