"Trail, train make Sacramento bike trip as easy as it is scenic"

As a former resident of the great city of Davis, California, I am well acquainted with Amtrak's excellent Capitol Corridor service between Sacramento and the Bay Area. It provides a great intermodal connection, as this fine article in the San Francisco Chronicle's Sunday Travel section illustrates.

During my time as executive director of the California Bicycle Coalition, I frequently traveled with my bike on the Capitol Corridor between Davis and Sacramento.
