Cycling may be the next best thing to flying, and is a great way to get in touch with the nature that surrounds you.
Rent a bike, or print out a tour map. Set off on an adventure and explore the Delta on a bicycle…maybe even one built for two. Check VisitLodi.com for suggestions on great biking routes, including one that involves a train ride!
The California Association of Bicycling Organizations also has great resources for riding through the Delta region. With its flat land, light traffic on side roads, and views for miles, cycling in the Delta is a great way to explore. The Great Delta Trail has miles of trails already in use and more in the works in the years to come.
