Born-again rider, here. Thor (35), of Sacramento, CA.
New owner of a Giant Roam 1. First bike that I have bought outside of a Target or Walmart.
Took it out on the Sac County Bike Trails just recently for its maiden voyage. 40 miles in just under 4 hours. Taking it easy since I haven't rode in almost 10 years. I will say that my toosh was begging for a new saddle. Got a Bontrager Commuter Gel CRZ+ saddle on the way. The stock Giant Connect just isn't doing the job.
Sticking to the trails for now until the helmet comes in. Gotta go shopping for ride apparel now. Gotta look the part, at least. =P
Once the dry season is over, will definitely hit up the trails packing hotdogs and burgers and will skewer it up on a nice spot on the American River. Will even try to bring the fishing pole and wrangle up a salmon or two. It will be interesting trying to carry a salmon back to the house on the bicycle. =P
Hello NorCal! New rider from Sacramento, CA here. Purchased a vintage Nishiki last week and I love it. I've been commuting to work/gym then home on weekdays and this past weekend I went on the American River Trail both Saturday and Sunday. It's very awesome to enjoy the city on a bike, it feels like there's so much to do.
Sacramento riders ~ Let's ride!
Once they finish construction on the trails, I'm down! I will be starting most of my cycle adventures from the Natomas area.
hey Chris and all riders out there in norcal and anybody coming from afar who would like to hook up for a great sf bay area ride. Check out thelocalsroute.com and meet up with a guide that will take you on that awesome local ride that otherwise would be difficult to figure out. No fee involved. Hope to hear from all.
