The Next Few Days & Weeks
Hi internet world! Today, we are in Davis, CA… exploring a bit and checking out all the bike infrastructure that we’ve heard so much about. Then we’re headed to Sacramento this afternoon for a few days (or possibly longer, as Russ is nursing a bit of an injury). If anyone out there is in Sac and wants to meet up for coffee or a beer, let us know!
Since we are going to be in town for a few days we are hoping to have the opportunity to ply our trades. So if you’re looking for a great new portrait or some food photography, or if you want to check out some unique hand-crafted jewelry in person, contact us.
From Sacramento, our rough plan is to start riding back down to Long Beach. We’re taking an inland route (that we haven’t quite figure out yet, but we’ve heard that Highway 49 is nice). If you have recommendations or if you’re along our route and want to connect, shoot us an email! We’re really enjoying all the time we’ve been able to spend meeting up with new people along the way, so don’t be shy.

I can’t advise you about conditions on 49 as its been 42 years since I’ve been on it, but it takes you through the historic gold rush country. If you’ve read Bret Harte and Mark Twain you will recognize the names of some of the towns, Angel’s Camp, Chinese Camp, & etc. Bret Harte’s “The Outcasts of Poker Flats”, and Mark Twain’s “The Jumping Frogs of Calaveras County” are a couple of examples of 19th century books written about the area. Columbia is a restored mining town and California state park thats worth a visit. At least it was 42 years ago. I’m sure you would enjoy the trip down highway 49, lots of history there.

Are you guys heading back “home”? Will this be the last stretch of the trip?

Hi Laura. I met you at Standish-Hickey. I was riding with Mike.
Anyway, Highway 49 is indeed nice. You’d be riding at 2000-3000 feet of elevation, so expect sub-freezing temperatures at this time of year. At all times of the year, it’s hilly.
