Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My trip to Ukiah today

.
.
...if I had more ambition, I'd start a California travel blog. #Huell_Howser



Some wildflower shots on Hwy 20, going through Colusa and Lake counties.



I finally stopped to eat for the first time since breakfast in Williams, a very small, Central Valley, farm town
about an hour North of Sacramento..I had the filet medallions. It is a mistake to order seafood in a small,
Central Valley, farm town. The panorama is of Williams' main street from the one traffic control in town.

A lot of the ag towns have an entrance archway which was put up to celebrate something or other.

The one for Modesto says, "Water, Wealth, Contentment, Health". In Williams, it just says 'Williams".


I went up to see some bike tools being donated to our co-op and to bring them back. Quite the historical adventure, as they were from an old Schwinn shop.

Obviously can't rely on people who've been drinking.

There's something vaguely creepy about that. If it said "hard work will set you free" I'd turn tail and head to Williams ASAP.
