My husband and I are Sacramento Natives, The Farm to Fork Capital of the nation. My husband is a retired Life flight nurse and I am an Operating Room Technician. We are active and love to Mt bike, hike, ski, eat great food, grow food, as well as wine and beer taste. Sacramento is surrounded by vineyards, historical 49er history, lakes, rivers, mountains, and the sea.
Sacramento is located at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We are only 2 hours from San Francisco and 2 hours from Lake Tahoe, we are 20 minutes from Sacramento International Airport.

We have cruisers (bicycles) to share.
