Yesterday Kari and I visited "Practical Cycles" in old Sacramento. The father/son shop is the newest addition to the already thriving community of bike shops in our area.
Cassidy Castleman and his Dad, Tim Castleman welcomed us with open arms. We test rode the electrical "Pedego" It was truly a fun ride. We will featuring a Pedego and a Worksman Cycle at the Vélo & Vintage Fashion Show.
They were so generous that they offered me a Worksman to ride around. Coming soon pictures of me on my new shiny Red Worksman bike.

The signs that once prohibited bicycle traffic on K Street are now being changed to allow bikes between 13th and 7th Streets. Pictured here is the City of Sacramento worker adding the new signs.
As you bicycle down this part of K Street, remember to stay in the middle part, yeild to pedestrians and trains, cross the numbered streets with the pedestrian signal and ride at or slower than 10 miles per hour.
