Ride in September will be the 2nd Saturday to avoid Eroica conflict

Colleagues,

Normally, the ride is 3rd Saturday but this is in conflict with Eroica California which a number of our members, including myself, will be participating in. Below is information for a 2nd Saturday ride on September 9th at 9 a.m. We are going to do a downstream, flattish ride to East Sacramento with a turnaround at Druthers for coffee and waffles!

Route start: Starbucks at Gold River-2095 Golden Centre Ln, Gold River, CA 95670

Route (30 miles and 600 feet of climbing): https://ridewithgps.com/routes/44152019

As always, I leave the Guy West Bridge at 8 a.m. to bike to the ride start if you want to add 14 miles each way to the ride.

I'm hoping to drive up from the Bay Area and join the ride this Saturday. Since I'm coming from the west it makes sense to me to start at the Guy West Bridge, maybe complete the whole ride and return to the bridge or maybe skip the second half of the ride and return to the bridge after coffee and waffles.

In any case where can I park near the bridge?

Thanks,
Brent

If you are talking Guy West Bridge, you can park on University Avenue or pick any of the grocery lots near the bridge.

Otherwise it might be best to go to the address listed.

We'll be glad to have you along, Brent! Yep, I have seen riders park and unload their bikes right on University Ave near the Guy West bridge and if you're at the bridge by 8am, you'll be able to ride to the official starting point with Albert.
Hope to see you on Saturday!

Brent,

If you look at the University Avenue side of the Guy West Bridge there is plenty of street parking and a bike path that takes you to the bridge and the ARBT bike path. I gather up riders there and ride to the bike start from there because I live just a few blocks away from the GWB. I Will be on a red mid 70s Peugeot PRN10.

I'm new to this, but the graphic is exactly what I was thinking.

Going to miss you all this Saturday. Recovering from illness. On a good note, I've watched La Vuelta a few times. Exciting!

There is one thing to keep in mind: On a map, it looks like you can turn left onto southern part of University from Howe Ave just after Howe crosses the American River. You cannot; University goes under Howe there. Continue further north on Howe and turn left onto the northern part of University>

Enjoy the ride, Brent. This is a good group of people. I'd be there if I could, but I can't.

Feel better soon! There seems to be a pre-Eroica illness/injury thing going around.

I have a bit of the sniffles since yesterday but, unless things get worse, I plan on riding on Saturday. Would be good to see you again, Brent!

I am bouncing back from a disc issue and, given that I haven't ridden in the seven weeks since it flared up, I want to get a ride in to see if I will ride the Eroica coastal route the following weekend. Don't want to burn the family capital of going away for weekend and burning hotel points if I'm just going to be miserable on the ride!

Great ride. What a fine bike route! I had a fine time, even when I was lost. Thanks to @bibliobob for indispensible navigation aid that got me to the start.

...there really is no better place to be lost, in Sacramento, than out on the American River parkway in the early morning. It's even better on a weekday.

I found a Raleigh...? I think it's an International. If you have a Raleigh or know about them, I'd like to catch up with you at the next ride. It had been set up with an engine. I saved it!

...there's a long thread on this. Look at it here: Identifying early Raleigh International

That seems like the most likely candidate. They were still using those seat stay attachments in 1971 (you can see them on this early Pro frame as well), and the fork crown is definitely what they used on the International. (Mine is later, same fork crown, but different seat stay ends.) There are people who know more about these than I do. I have several of them, but every time I think I have Raleigh all figured out, someone points out I'm wrong.

I tend to look more at the longer chain stays as a defining characteristic, distinguishing them from the Professional frames of the same vintage. Otherwise, the chrome socks, Campagnolo dropouts, fork crown, lugs, headbadge all seem to be consistent with an early International.

They are fine bikes. I eventually put fenders and slightly wider tires on mine, as well as a rack and bags. Good randonneuring candidate, for down in the Delta.

Thanks so much for the detailed reply. International is what I concluded but I don't know why it has no model name on it. Someone covered it with a Campy sticker?

Anyway I will finish alignment this week and build it with parts I have. If I like the ride I may acquire the campy components it would have come with.

...there was never a blue and orange model of the International like that. I guess yours was repainted by someone who went to U of Florida.
The chrome I can see on yours still looks good, though, so it might be a good candidate for repainting in one of the colors they sold them in.

...Panera Bread, right off the bike trail near Howe at Northrup. I can't eat them any more...they make me fat.
