Links to maps and cue sheets for our favorite local bicycle rides.
Here are some of our favorite local routes, with links to maps, cue sheets, and elevation profiles. Most of these rides start in Davis or Winters.
We have covered these roads on solo rides, on recurring club rides, and on club tours. Keep in mind, however, this does not aim to be a complete compilation of rides and route data. These are ideas and themes which you can riff on. We encourage you to find ways to make these ride ideas work best for the type of cycling you want to do.
Please contact the Club Cartographer if you want to add a favorite ride to the library, if you find something that needs to be updated or corrected, or just have something nice to say.
