Bay Area Biking
Shady section of Sawyer Camp Trail

I like to go bicycling, but with my skinny-tired high-geared road bike, I prefer riding flat, smooth, dedicated bike paths. These are special ones that are particularly well-suited for road biking. Because they're flat, most of them are also good for family bike rides. Because they're away from traffic, they're relatively safe for kids. Some follow along creekbeds. Others go near San Francisco Bay and are part of the developing San Francisco Bay Trail. Someday I'll get a mountain bike and tackle some of the steeper unpaved trails. Since I prefer to hike these trails, you can read about many of these in my hiking pages. In the meantime, here are some good places to go biking in my part of the world. Each one of these links connects to my page on each trail. These are trails that I've been biking on and have lots of pictures of the areas. For other biking trails, see my links page below.
