9th Annual Folsom Ride with the Mayor this Thursday

Join Folsom's Mayor Steve Miklos and pro cyclist "Fast Freddie" Rodriguez on Thursday, May 12 and enjoy a scenic ride along the American River Bike Trail from Historic Folsom to Sacramento. Riders meet at 7:30 a.m. in Historic Folsom at Karen's Bakery and Café to fuel up with free coffee and pastries before the 8:30 a.m. departure. Along the 30-mile route, the group will converge with riders from Rancho Cordova and then continue to Discovery Park in Sacramento to join other cyclists from around the region for a free catered lunch provided by the May is Bike Month campaign. After lunch, the group will ride the last few miles to the State Capitol grounds to join in the Capitol Bike Fest.
