Welcome to Davis, the Bicycle Capital

About | Davis, both the city and the campus, has earned the name Bicycle Capital of the U.S. because of efforts to provide its thousands of cyclists with a bicycle-friendly environment. Wide streets, well-marked bike lanes, inviting pathways, gentle terrain, mild climate, and an attitude of mutual respect between cyclists and motorists have resulted in a community with the most bikes per capita of any in the nation. In Davis, bicycling is a way of life.

 

 

Davis is Flat and Has A Lot of Bicycle Pathways | If you’ve been to Davis before, you understand why riding a bicycle is the preferred mode of transportation. Compared to a hilly or mountainous region, it takes little exertion to cycle around town. And with roughly 55 miles of pathways dedicated to bicycles and pedestrian traffic, getting where you need to go can be a breeze. Knowing your terrain will help you understand the type of bicycle you should choose.
