Day 54 Recap; Riding in style for the finish!

by EP on July 30, 2010

An incredible breakfast from Randy and Julie was just what we needed to power up before leaving Roseville, CA this morning. We started our second to last day of riding on a great note, meeting up with the American River Trail (PDF MAP) in Sacramento en route to Fairfield. This bike path works its way through Sacramento, connecting with a few other bike baths which eventually connected us to Davis, the “Cycling Capital of the World.”

In 1966, a pro-bicycle majority came to power on the Davis City Council, and ever since, Davis has enjoyed an environment for cyclists which we haven’t seen in any of the towns we’ve cycled through since leaving Portland, Maine several thousand miles ago. We didn’t find a street without a bike lane or a store without a great place to store our rides. As if by fate, the second major mechanical issue of the trip arose today, and Pete had to make a quick trip to a bike store to help with some gear shifting problems he was having. What better place than Davis to need a bike store. It didn’t take long to find a shop and get it changed. Since Kelly and Lauren are keeping us company now on our way to San Francisco, Pete’s repair job gave us some time to wander around the area near UC-Davis.

It wasn’t long before we were back on the road. On the way out of town, we were surprised to find the United States Bicycling Hall of Fame. Though we’re nowhere near the same league as the renowned hall of fame inductee Greg LeMond, we felt a connection to this museum chronicling the history of cycling in the US and great feats surrounding the sport. Long days battling the Appalachians, the winds of western Kansas, and the Great Basin make us think that, if only in our minds (and that of our Moms), our ride makes us a very small part of the story of American Cycling housed there.

We left Davis and caught up with Putah Creek Road, a great route for cyclists between Fairfield and Davis. After days upon days of not seeing any eastbound cyclists as we passed through Nevada and Utah, we were happy to see dozens of other riders out today. It’s easy to see why so many cyclists would choose to ride in this part of the world; we rode through miles and miles of orchards, vineyards, and anything else that would grow in this rich California farmland. It began to heat up a bit, so we met up with Kelly and Lauren in Winters, California to grab a drink. Thanks to Dan behind the bar of the Buckhorn Steak and Roadhouse for helping us out and being so supportive of our cause and the Wounded Warrior Project. If you’re ever in Winters, stop down Main Street and check out their great assortment of antique guns and animals from around the world on the walls.

Our day finally ended when we rolled into Fairfield, CA, our last night before finishing this ride. Thanks to Meagan with Marriott hotels, we are staying in a great room at the Courtyard by Marriott here. She also managed to get us into a great room in Carson City before crossed the border into California, so we owe her a debt of gratitude for how much she supports us and the Wounded Warrior Project.

Tomorrow our ride stops when we hit the Pacific Ocean. It’s hard to believe that we left the Maine coast on June 6th and got this far, and it’s even harder to imagine what we’ll do when we don’t have to hop back on the bikes on Saturday. We’re all excited to finish, though, and it’ll be great to have so many supporters from the West Point Society of San Francisco to see us through to the finish. Thanks to Drew and Paula Forney of Boise, Idaho, whose son, Joe, is a fellow Class of 2005 grad, we’ll be riding in style to the coast in our new, custom cycling jerseys they had made for us. If you see us out and about on the road tomorrow, you can thank Drew and Paula for making us look so official. They’ve spearheaded a support campaign for us in Blue Cross of Idaho, and we’re humbled to have so many supporters in the Gem State. On the next trip, you can be sure that we’ll divert our route to the City of Trees.

In the meantime, it’s time to head to the City by the Bay. We’ve talked about this day for a long time, and it’s time to put this trip in the books. To the Pacific…

Fun reading your story. I cycled from Salt Lake City to Hill Cumorah Pageant in Palmyra, NY the summer of 1966. Great memories of that 2700 mile trip.

Congratulations! The Brady’s and Swerbinsky’s are so proud of you! From West Point to the war zones and back, you’ve dedicated the last 9 years of your life to this country. And you are still giving. Thank you for all you’ve done – you’ve enlightened my days with the blog and you’ve brought many happy memories of your time at West Point. We loved being that home away from home. Have a great time in CA! Love, Lynda & Craig

one of my horses was a ‘test case’ at that great veterinary school–UC-Davis-and we-all -together- beat the disease he had—

So glad you are so close to your finish!

GG & I have been with you all the way from Maine to Calif. with our prayers & enthusiastic support. UC Davis was my alma mater from ’46 to ’52 and we either walked or rode our bikes to the campus. I was a member & graduate of the first class of the School of Veterinary Medicine there. Putah Creek was a big hang out for us. I was born and raised in the beautiful fruit country around Vacaville, you cycled through. I have lots of memories of this area! God bless you and all your supporters. See you in Corona.
