Life in the Bike Lane

Cycling through or near Placer County

You five loyal readers know I find riding my bike in Placer County just great.

 But I have to admit there are other places to pedal too.  Here are some pictures of places to ride in this general region.

If you can pack your bike in your car, SUV or truck and drive for about an hour, there are many easy, low traffic and safe routes.

One of my favorite starting points is at the end of Ethan Way near Cal Expo, where there is parking and easy access to the American River Bike Trail.

The Nimbus Fish Hatchery has ample parking right on the American River Bike Trail and one can be out in the Delta in just a few turns. 

One can also park in Discovery Park and head through Old Sac and down the river for a very flat ride.
