CENTRAL CALIFORNIA RECREATIONAL LOOPS - These rides, which comprise my favorite recreational bike routes in central California, start and end at locations outside the immediate Sacramento area. Each ride is a personal creation. They are closed loops, starting and finishing at the same location.
FROM HERE TO THERE - In contrast to Recreational Loops, these rides start at one location and terminate elsewhere. In other words, you can actually accomplish purposeful transportation! Routes are detailed for Sacramento to Truckee/Tahoe/Reno, Sacramento to San Francisco, Sacramento to Oakland, Sacramento to Sonora, and Sacramento to Vallejo/San Francisco. Return courses also are detailed.
PLEASE NOTE: these routes inherently are substantially more risky than most recreational loops.
SACRAMENTO LOCAL RECREATIONAL LOOPS - These rides start and end in the immediate Sacramento area (usually Mile 13.5 of the American River Bike Trail). These rides obviate the requirement of driving to and from a start location, permitting you actually to go on a meaningful bike ride without using an automobile!
WARNING: Bicycling is dangerous! Ride
these routes at your own risk! Some of these roads are hazardous!
I accept no responsibility for the risks inherent in these rides or for any
injuries or adverse events occurring while riding these courses!
