Today I decided to put in some miles on the bike trail after work. I started at Hazel Avenue and rode west towards Sacramento.
Although I chanced it today, I generally don't ride solo past CSUS because that's where things get a little sketchy on the trail. The Guy West Bridge is sort of the Mason-Dixon line for crazy. Go past it at your own risk. Case in point:
Yes, that's a guy in an overcoat and top hat roller blading.
If you are bold enough to go under Highway 80, which I did, it gets even worse.
Who the hell knows what is lurking in there.
Shortly after crossing under the highway I saw a guy sharpening a huge knife against a concrete picnic table. I opted not to take his picture due to the crazy eyes, huge weapon and a generally stabby vibe he had, but I found a reasonable facsimile on the internet:
I put in 41 miles and survived. Truthfully, it was a little disappointing to only see a couple crazy people. I guess Mondays are tough on everyone.
Oh, and a weight update: 171.6 pounds this morning. I lost almost four pounds in a week. Nice.
