Enjoyed a nice ride along the bike trail today.  Weather was very nice, with the temperature in the high 80’s.  Started my ride near Cal Expo and traveled east past Watt Avenue.  The golfers were busy perfecting their swings at the Campus Commons Golf Course (Near the H Street Bridge Crossing).  Cycled by some squirrels and ducks along the way.  Took some pictures along the way – both scenery and nice folks bicycling the trail.

Be sure to note that tomorrow (May 2, 2015) is the Half Marathon Event.  The American River Bike Trail will be closed between 6AM and Noon for this event.  Also, tomorrow is supposed to be perfect weather in Sacramento for a bicycle ride.  The trail will be available for everyone to use starting at Noon.

Taking a well deserved break at William B. Pond Park.

Had a nice conversation with Day.  He is a veteran of the bike trail.  Notice the Recumbent Bicycle style.

    The trail is designed as a road bike trail. Paved the entire length from Downtown Sacramento to the City of Folsom.

    Is this a mountain bike trail or a road bike trail? I cannot tell by the photos here.

      It’s mainly for road bike however there’s a horse trail along the side that in some places you can trail ride
