Solano Bike Month

STA is now on MapMyRide!

As part of May is Bike Month, STA has joined MapMyRide and added each ride featured in the popular brochure Solano County Top Ten Bike Rides. Visit our MapMyRide profile by following this link to preview all of the routes with distance and climb details and have the option to export the route as GPX or KML files or send the route to your phone GPS! Log the rides you try – rate the rides, add pictures, and compete for the fastest times! STA will continue to log ride and walks on our MapMyRide profile, so check back or add us as a friend!

May is Bike Month

STA has worked with our Bicycle Advisory Committee members to coordinate community bike rides in each of the member’s respective cities.
