Pics from my bikes maiden voyage (and more!)

I apoologize in advance for all the non riding pics, but it's too much work to remove them now.

Had a pretty nice little weekend. Ended up putting about 1200 miles on the car over 4 days, and we never even left the state. Drove to Sacramento early saturday morning and met up with my parents. From there we caravaned up to the campgrounds on the Yuba River. Spent the afternoon swimming in the river and hanging out. Spent the night and got up at 6am with my dad and brother. My brother was doing a triathalon in Graeagle (about an hour away) so we had him drop us off at the trailhead of the ride we did. Had such a freaking blast I can't even describe it. We didn't see a single soul and the trails ****ing rocked. There were several sections where I was just flying through the forest whooping at the top of my lungs. Spent the rest of the day by the river, then headed back to the parents house. Spent sunday morning with my parents, brother and his kids at William Land Park in Sacramento at Funderland (small kids amusement park), then went up to brothers to swim in his pool. We hit the road around 8pm, and left Jackson with my brother for the week. Got back to the LBC around 2:30am. Had a nice relaxing day of doing nothing yesterday.

Anyways, here are some pics.

Sounds like an awesome trip! Glad to hear your bike worked good. For 4th of July I took my Spanish exchange student along the American River Trail, started in Folsom (about 15 minutes from Sacramento) and rode down for a good 2 hours.

Where exactly was the trail? Might have to check it out sometime

It starts off Hwy 49 up near the Sierra Buttes and ends in Downieville.

I am lucky. Smart, fantastic mother, and a great body after two kids.

Pretty cool. Thanks for the proof that having kids will not stop one from riding. So have you started a bike fund for their first mountain bikes?
