Recreational road cyclists can find an impressive range of rides along the Capitol Corridor train route, which cuts through some of Northern California’s best cycling terrain between San Jose and Sacramento/Auburn. And since each Capitol Corridor train has two marked “bike cars” with large bicycle storage areas, as well as racks on the other cars, there’s nothing stopping you from enjoying some of the most beautiful bike rides in the state—even if you don’t have a car to drive there on your own.
The Capitol Corridor has 17 stations between downtown San Jose and Auburn in the Sierra foothills. For bikers who don’t live near a Capitol Corridor station, nearly all the major corridors in Northern California are served by connecting buses—most of which also offer bike storage or racks on a first-come, first-served basis. These connecting bus lines expand Capitol Corridor’s reach to places like San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Lake Tahoe, Napa, and Santa Rosa.
