A local Boy Scout, Scott McCuen, addressed a much needed service along the American River Bike Trail. Scott decided to engage in fundraising to fund the cost of bicycle self-repair stations along the American River Bike Trail. Great idea, Scott!

On behalf of all American River Bike Trail Bicyclists – Thank You Scott!
One of our website visitors posted a question requesting information on the best place to start a walk/ride along the American River Bike Trail. The target date for the walk/ride is this coming Saturday – March 8, 2014 - with a perfect weather forecast!
Also, does the bike trail offer bicycle rentals? If anyone is aware, please identify the location of the rental company and rental fees, if known.
In the interest of safety, it is a good idea to stay along the sections of the trail that have a consistent flow of bicycle traffic/walking traffic. One section with easy automobile parking access is near the Guy West Walk Bridge (opposite the CSUS College Campus). Proceed along the trail to the east – toward the Watt Avenue Bridge. Nice scenery along the way.
It is always best to have at least one companion joining you along the trail.

The American River Parkway Foundation does an excellent job each year coordinating several American River Parkway volunteer clean-up days.
The volunteer clean-up efforts basically include removing trash along the American River Bike Trail, which is part of the American River Parkway.
Please consider joining the nice folks that are part of the American River Parkway volunteer clean-up efforts. Meet new people, get fresh air and exercise!
