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.
