We have created a discussion area on our website to facilitate discussion related to American River Bike Trail topics. At the present time, we have discussion topics related to bike trail detours and section closures, bike trail navigation, etc. We plan to add more discussion topics in the future.
Please access the ‘Discussion‘ link in the menu above to read/respond/participate. To join our discussion, each participant is required to create a free user account – which requires a valid e-mail address and about one minute.
If you wish to suggest another discussion category, please e-mail us using the contact form in the menu above. We will review and add new categories that we feel will be useful to a majority of American River Bike Trail users. Thank you!
