We started the day by doing an important thing: we biked a portion of the Bizz Johnson Rail Trail, thus commemorating the nationwide Rails-to-Trails initiative. It was U S Congressman Harold T “Bizz” Johnson who pioneered the Rail/Trail legislation which led to the conversion of abandoned rail lines into walking/biking trails all over the country. We rode a 7 mile piece of the very first Rail Trail and it was a lovely ride up the 3% grade out of Susanville, California along the Susan River.
Hitting the 3%.
The first tunnel and there's
another bridge at the other end.
The second tunnel
There are fish in the Susan River.
Catch and Release only.
A good morning’s ride.
Then it was hitch up and start down the road to another location time.
