Jelly beans and Easterโ€ฆ ๐ŸŽถ they go together like shamma-lamma, lamma-lamma ding-dong! Nothing says Easter like little bunny hop on the bike through the springtime sunshine to pick up some jelly beans to share with the loved ones.

This should be a very enjoyable ride to Stanislaus County at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.
