We like to think you can ride your bike everywhere, but sometimes you need other means of transportation.

In the heart of the Sacramento Valley, Davis is 15 minutes from the state Capitol, museums and other metropolitan attractions. Being on Interstate 80 running east to Sacramento and west to San Francisco makes Davis easily accessible by car with an approximate travel time of an hour and a half from either the Bay Area or the Sierra.
