Cycling Nevada City to Downieville

Nevada City Bike Rides
Today’s blog post comes from my mother, Evans Phelps, who is an inspiration to many of us in her continual quest for new outdoor experiences .  This week she took a ride with her new touring bike from Tour of Nevada City and shared some photos and thoughts about her trip.  “For a challenge and a new adventure, I rode my bike to Downieville and enjoyed a night camping along the North Yuba River. It was a beautiful, peaceful evening.  For those without touring packs, you could spend the night in Downieville at one of their cute inns.  It is a very scenic 50 mile ride with multiple spots to stop and swim. You cross all three forks of the Yuba Rivers.  I stopped at the cafe in North San Juan for a break and took the longer less traveled road home through French Coral and Bridgeport.  I am saddle soar and pooped, but I feel wonderful.  I can’t wait to do it again.”  If she’s not an inspiration to you, I don’t know what else is?
