Bike to Work Day 2016 has come and gone. We hope many of you had the opportunity to give bicycling a try on Thursday, May 12, and will continue to use pedal power for your travels throughout “May is Bike Month” and beyond. Capitol Corridor enjoyed a full day of festivities at the Capitol Bike Fest in Sacramento and on board the train later that day for a special Bike to Work Day Happy Hour (or as we like to call it “Cappy Hour”!) Check out some of our favorite pictures from the day. More Bike to Work Day 2016 Photo Recap
The Capitol Corridor has long provided bike-friendly accommodations on board our trains and promoted biking as a complement to our service. Both biking and train travel provide more sustainable and enjoyable alternatives to driving, and the combination of the two allows for an even better travel experience! On Thursday, May 12, Capitol Corridor will demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the biking community at various Bike to Work Day events on board our trains and along the route.

Many people come to Davis to experience the lively downtown, the university vibe, and…the chickens? That’s right, in Davis there’s actually an annual event that involves biking around the city to check out backyard chicken coops. The Tour de Cluck, now in its sixth year, was on Saturday, May 30 and gave Davis residents, as well as out-of-towners, the opportunity to learn more about sustainable agriculture, admire chicken coop design, and exchange tips for raising these backyard birds.

On Thursday, May 14, bicycle enthusiasts throughout the Sacramento region came together on the steps of the Capitol to celebrate Bike Month at the city’s annual BikeFest. Biking intersects transportation, health, and the environment, so BikeFest offered a variety of exhibits – some directly related to biking, and some not, including walking advocacy groups, public transit, and sustainable food and wellness services.

The stretch of the Capitol Corridor route between Martinez and Davis is one of the prettiest, and just looking out the window it’s easy to see that nature is alive and well here. Most passengers never experience this first-hand though as they zip past the Suisun/Fairfield station on the way to Davis and Sacramento to the east, or Bay Area destinations to the west.
