The Yolo Bypass:
the inlnd sea of Sacramento
An almost limiless flood plain 3 miles wide and 40 miles long that can handle more water than the Mississippi, at 16,600 acres, it is a haven for waterfowl, shorebirds, wading and migratory birds, raptors, invertebrates, snakes, turtles, toads, and bats.
In 1884 Thomas Stveens walked from Davis to Sacramento on the train tracks that pass above the Yolo Bypass enroute to Boston
Instead of taking much of the day to do so, modern cyclists can ride through the Yolo Bypas, adjancent to I-80, in well under an hour!
Once Sacramento bound Cycles leave the Yolo Causeway behind, they will find themselves on W. Capitol Ave, one of the few remaining stretches of the original Lincoln Hwy, as they move through the small city of West Sacramento. Under 4 miles later, they will find themselves at the historic Tower Bridge which spans the Sacramento River and looks at the California State Capitol!
