Day 2; Davis to Plymouth

Exceptional ride along the 34 mile bike path along the American River by Sacramento.  Lots of history on the gold rush.  Delicious lunch at Jack’s Urban Eatery in Sunshine off of the bike path.  Hooked up with Kyle who has biked all across the US.  He is planning on biking  Bolivia’s Yungas Road, also known as the death road for its extreme exposure. Guided us through Folsom and took us past the Famous Folsom Prison.  My music teacher, Scott Pittman, would be proud.  I would have played a Johnny Cash tune had I packed my guitar.  

Kyle left us and told us good luck with the 30 miles to Plymouth.  I was a bit surprised. I miscalculated the route and we had to bike an unplanned 12 miles up hill to get us to Plymouth at 6:30 pm for a total of 77 miles 

We ate at an amazing restaurant called Taste — one of the best restaurants in CA.  We found it tough to get on a bike to go to dinner after biking all day. 

Coming into West Sacramento.

  1. I only now realized that you can comment on these posts. I feel lucky to have been mentioned in one of your posts!! Somewhere else in these photos I saw a Skelton playing guitar. I hope you stole it away to play some Johnny Cash! 🎸

  2. Mike and Mark,

    We were the couple sitting next to you at Taste Restaurant in Plymouth, CA. — Gregg and Fran. We were celebrating our 35th anniversary. My wife wrote down your website name and I just looked at your journey since we met you on June 5th. Wow! Amazing blog and experience. Thanks for sharing your incredible adventure with the world. You are 2 amazing men! Best of luck on the remainder of your journey and in raising the much needed funds to combat Alzheimer’s.

    1. Thanks, Gregg. I was so tired that night. Great to meet you and congrats again on your anniversary. Hope to visit Taste, in Plymouth, in the future. Great restaurant.
