We'll leave William Pond Park and head down the bike trail to Old Sacramento, across the Tower Bridge and through West Sacramento, passing historical Raley Field and numerous motels.
As a group, we'll cross the long and "noisy" causeway into the thriving metropolis of Davis. We will figure out a place for lunch. Then after pizza we ride back.
This is a very flat 60 mile ride. We can take it easy on the speed and stay together as a group as much as we can. We will regroup as we go.
Do's: Helmet, tire tube, air, patch kit etc.....bring some type of nourishment for the ride. You will probably need about 200 calories an hour, plan on 5 hours for this ride. Good snacks are peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Fig Newton cookies, Clif bars, etc.
Downtown Davis has a great sandwich and bagel place!
Gel's and Blocks are good for quick burst's, but not for sustained long ride energy.
There will be water fountains on the way, so bring a water bottle or two. Saturday is expected to be close to 80 degrees in the afternoon.
Let me know if you have any questions.
"You can do this!" Really!
