It's a great time to be a cyclist in Sacramento, here are a few wonderful biking events this weekend:
Sacramento Cycle Chic, 12-3:00 p.m.
The ride will commence at McKinley Park's Rose Garden on H St. East Sacramento. Chocolate Fish will have their coffee trike out for delicious caffeinated treats. Then the ride takes off for a jaunte around the capitol and a tour of the park and gardens. We will meet our docent, at 1:00pm, for a tour of the park and the beautiful gardens. The tour is scheduled to take about an hour and the ride finishes up at Hot Italian for another awesome cycling event - which we will get to.
Dressing up is highly encouraged for this cycle chic ride, there will be a prize for the most stylish rider.
The Savage Sprints at Hot Italian v4.0, 4-8:00 p.m. (1627 16th Street)
Stationary bike races, pizza, great wine and people - who could ask for more. Registration for racing is already filled up, but watching is half the fun, and that's free!
Monday: Dead Presidents Ride, Fremont Park, noon
Two Rivers Cider is hosting the second annual Dead President’s Day Bike Ride and Fundraiser. This year’s event will raise funds for friend in need and Sacramento’s original bike messenger, Rick Sander.
Celebrate the holiday with us, and meet up at noon at Fremont Park (Hot Italian). We will ride the route north to an undisclosed location (this is a fun ride, not a competition or distance ride). Celebrate and enjoy cider and food. $10 gets you cider, swag, food and fun, and additional donations are encouraged. Show your spirit and dress like your favorite (or least favorite) president (or first lady). Attached is a flyer; spread the word.
See you there!

So I need to get my Jackie O' outfit ready - anyone have a pink pill-box hat I can borrow?
