Bicycle-Friendly Davis

 The City of Davis logo is an old-fashioned 'highwheeler" bicycle. Davis has always been a place where the bicycle is a preferred mode of transportation.

Davis is a "Bicycle Friendly City"  at the forefront of incorporating bicycle lanes into the City traffic flow since 1966. The City of Davis has won national awards for bikeway planning and design. National Cycling groups and Outdoors magazines have bestowed many honors on Davis including "America's Best Cycling City" in 1995.

Today Davis has over 100 miles of Bike Lanes and Bike Paths throughout the City and surrounding area.
"Bike Lane" is a separate lane for bicycles only, which is built into the city streets usually between the traffic lane and the gutter or sidewalk. 
"Bike Path"  is a concrete or asphalt path for bicycle and pedestrian use which is not associated with existing roads or auto traffic. It often winds through greenbelts that connect Davis neighborhoods.

Some of these bike paths allow riders to pass under highways and railroad tracks to easily get around town without encountering normal auto traffic congestion. There are many scenic bike paths that take riders to city parks, along Putah Creek, through the University, and into the downtown area. Once downtown, riders can utilize bike lanes to go  shop, dine, meet friends, or get to work.Some bike Paths and lanes allow riders to explore the countryside around town and connect Davis to Winters and Woodland.

Many of the neighborhoods in Davis are designed with Greenbelts and Bike Paths incorporated into them. Some homes back to a greenbelt or bike path. All you need do is go out your back gate or down the block, to get on the bike path and start to tour any of the 100+ miles of bike paths and lanes to get around town. Most city parks can be reached via a bike lane or path.  Bike paths are incorporated into their design making it easy to ride from one park to another.

It is not just a popular mode of transportation for students, as many University employees and townspeople bike to work from their nearby homes.

One of the more popular routes is the Davis Bike Loop, a circle path around Davis that is 12 miles in length and takes you through the University and a cross-section of neighborhoods.

The path is marked in green with the Davis bike logo and the words "Davis Bike Loop".  Attached below is a map.
