Come join me on this easy flat ride out to Lenise’s Cafe in West Sacramento. All routes will be taking the new Del Rio bike trail down to Freeport. There are short and long gravel and road routes. Both gravel routes get on the levees along the Sacramento River and the deep water channel. These gravel routes are still mostly paved, so gravel or cyclocross bikes are best, but a mountain bike may work if you’re fast. Gravel, short: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/46794611 Gravel, long: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/46794698 Short and long routes for road bikes are still an option. Road, short: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/46794778 Road, long: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/46794841 The short and long routes separate after crossing the Freeport Bridge. The short routes turn right on South River Rd and head towards West Sacramento, with the gravel route staying on the levee when it turns to gravel. The long routes turn left on South River Rd. and then right on either Pumphouse Rd. (gravel) or Willow Point Rd. (road) before heading back to West Sacramento. After Lenise’s Cafe the routes separate again with the gravel routes getting on the levee along the deep water channel and the road routes staying on the streets. All the routes come together on South River Rd at the end of Village Parkway and then cross over the Tower Bridge and return through Land Park getting on the north end of the Del Rio bike trail by Riverside Blvd and taking it down to 35th Ave. I will sweep the short gravel route. If you plan to do one of the other routes I recommend that you ride with someone.

Ostensibly named after the nearby Tallac Village neighborhood, today‘s destination at 60th St. and 14th Ave. is actually in the Tahoe Park area just to the north. Village Drive In is one of three old-school roadside diners within easy riding distance of Barrio (the others being East Sac‘s Cookie‘s Drive In and Whitey‘s Jolly Kone in old West Sac). All offer similar fare that‘s neither a gourmet nor a particularly healthful throwback to the days when nobody on this side of the Pacific even heard of tofu. In addition to the typical shakes and burgers, it‘s rumored that Village offers some vegetarian options, although I could not confirm this. But who goes there for brussels sprouts anyway?
