I rode the North Valley Rail Trail into town again this morning. It comes out at 16 miles roundtrip.
When I leave the house in the morning, trying to go early to beat the heat, I'm never sure where I'm going! This trail is so enjoyable though, that I usually head across the highway and take it in to town. At one point I heard a clunk, clunk, clunk and stopped to examine the chain, but it was fine. Started off again and clunk, clunk, clunk. Then I realized that the water bottle cage had lost its top screw and my water was leaking out the top of the upside down bottle! I stopped and removed the cage and hoped there would be new screws for me at Hometown Sports. Yes! What a helpful staff they have! They have pumped up my tires, too.
