Cycling In Placer County

Life in the Bike Lane

On alternate weeks, this column will feature 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. 

Today’s theme is “bike paths.”  Paved bike paths are a safe and easy alternative to suburban streets and country roads. 

Most newer developments in the county have bike paths or Multi-Use Paths (MUPS) included in their plan. 

Here are some pictures from multi-use paths that actually go somewhere.
