Adventures on a Folding Bike
After cycling the San Luis Rey River Trail, I decided I wanted to cycle the San Diego River Trail as well. I started the ride at Sefton Park in Mission Valley to Ocean Beach. Shortly after starting my ride, it began to rain. I was feeling very “Dutchy”riding in the wind and rain. However, in spite of the full rain suit I was wearing, there were some moments I wished that I had taken one step further and used an umbrella!
By the time I got to “Dog Beach” at the Ocean Beach end, the rain was finally starting slow down. There I found some clever bike racks shaped liked bicycles.
It was good thing I put on my new mud flaps. The spray from the rain created quite a mess and the flaps kept it under control.
Despite the wind and rain, it was a great experience to ride the San Diego River Trail. Next time, I’ll make sure to cycle it again… in the spring or summer time when the rainy season is over!
