me, jill, & raz are on the road to sunny california. trying to escape the rain, see some friends, and do some riding. we stopped into rainy peak cyclery, in cottage grove, or. just to say hello, and say hi to gus, but he wasn't at the shop that day. maybe next time. it took three days into our road trip to find some nice weather. and after a crazy hail storm coming into lake shasta, we found some sunshine in chico, home of sierra nevada! we rode the bidwell park trails today. kind of a city park. a huge city park. pretty damn rocky double track, but the single track was great. we rewarded ourselves with dinner at the brewery. yummy! chico is a great town. very bike friendly. most of the people ride beach cruisers around town. it's totally flat, in town. so that makes for some easy commuting by bike.
