Let’s try something new, huh? Breakfast destination is Wild Flour Cafe on O Street and 14th. The ride is an easy 21 miles on some bike trail early then wide and safe surface streets back. I just created this ride and picked a new food stop, so I know none of you have ridden this ride before. It will take us across the American River twice and thru Sac State and down M Street thru the Fab 40s and then cruise down L street with a bike path on both sides of the street. Return home will take us down Historic R Street corridor and down lower Broadway, thru Land Park, Curtis Park, UC Davis Med complex before cruising past the New senior housing complex at the old Sutter Maternity hospital. Also a surprise artistic home site.
