Biking & Walking

Bicycling is not only for recreation and exercise, it can also be a practical, healthy and affordable alternative to driving to work. SNCI offers information and resources to encourage bicycling generally and bike commuting in particular.

Bike Maps

SNCI’s SolanoYolo Bikelinks Map is a free map that covers Solano County, most of Yolo County and portions of southern Napa County. It was developed to encourage residents and visitors to bicycle by designating the suitability and safety of many of the roads in Solano County. It also contains other useful bicycle information.
