‘Tour de West Sac’ will be a casual bike ride around the town
NEWS-LEDGER ONLINE — MAY 30, 2014 —
West Sacramento City Council member Chris Ledesma is inviting locals to join him for a very casual bicycle ride around some of the city’s landmarks and neighborhoods on Saturday morning, May 31.
He anticipates that the”Tour de West Sac” informal ride will cover about 8-10 miles at a modest pace, and there will be several spots to stop and talk and to purchase refreshments. Ledesma hopes to use the ride to make sure some of his fellow citizens are better-acquainted with the city’s Clarksburg Branch Line Trail, the Pioneer Bluffs next to the barge canal, the “Michael McGowan Bridge” now under construction on South River Road, the new projects in the Bridge District and the city’s “urban farm” in Broderick, among other things. He will share knowledge of these areas along the way.
There is no charge to participate. Just show up about 10:30 a.m. in the Nugget Market parking lot (2000 Town Center Plaza in Southport). The ride departs at 11 and Ledesma anticipates it will finish around 2. Bring your bike and some cash for lunch, and wear appropriate safety gear.
