|It poured rain in the morning so we slept in. About noon we decided to bike the south end of Lake Almanor on the newly paved bikeway. It was a superhighway for bikes and almost deserted. The path followed the shoreline and then wound through stately pines deep in the surrounding forest. Pines hundreds of years old were everywhere. It was a long ride-18.2 miles and 808 vertical feet. We were spent by the time we were finished. The sun had finally broken through. We had dinner at Luciano's near our RV park.
