Life in the Bike Lane

Cycling through Placer County

Placer County has many creeks, canals and a couple of rivers running through it. 

It seems even during the drought years that there was always water flowing. 

For some bike riders, bridges are destinations or places to regroup after a hill climb. 

Bridges on bike paths often have a different surface (especially wooden beams) that makes a different sound under bike wheels. 

Here are a few of our favorite bridges in the area.

Tom Frady is a Lincoln resident and avid cyclist and driver.  This column features photographs from Placer County (and maybe some neighbors) taken while riding my bike. My hope is that the reader will be inspired to get on a bike and ride.  This is a beautiful area and a wonderful place to bicycle.
