The Sacramento Bike Hikers made Karen?s Bakery in Folsom their destination on Friday. The group is a Sacramento-based bike club that goes for Monday and Friday ?coffee rides,? and on Wednesday rides out for breakfast. They average 30 to 40 miles per ride. Other times, the group may bike to other places such as Roseville, Natomas or downtown Sacramento. ?The ride leader chooses and publicizes the route,? said John Whelan, retired real estate officer for the State of California. Chuck Urban, a chaplain working out of Mercy San Juan Hospital, is one of several riders who bought their bikes at Bicycles Plus in Folsom. ?I bought (the bike) because I was here at Karen?s Bakery a lot and I would go over there and daydream,? Urban said.
