Rider Stories

My favorite trip on the Capitol corridor is our annual bike trip to Sacramento. We take the train up Friday night with our bikes, have a few beers, and enjoy our friends company. On Saturday we bike to Folsom and back to Sac on a lovely trail. Then Sunday we bike home, along the train route,...
