I love it! And I'll second the notion that the area at Villanova and Sycamore needs some fixing up. Going clockwise, it's not obvious that you need to jog left to Villanova, since the marker points slightly to the right. Aside from that, though, the markers were great! A couple are slightly faded, but never enough to be a problem. I love the portion of the path in southeast Davis. --["Users/TomGarberson"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Davis Bike Loophttp://daviswiki.org/Davis_Bike_Loop2010-02-22 13:46:14RocksandDirtComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Davis Bike Loop<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 108: </td> <td> Line 108: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-02-22 12:46:14'' [[nbsp]] We did the bike loop on President's day (nice day). took us about an hour and 45, not riding hard at all.

It would seem natural when going east coming from the 113 bike overpass to turn left on Sycamore and then catch the green belt at either Antelope or Alvarado. Or another natural loop is to follow the bike path on H street and connect on F street, coming back to the current loop on the Covell bike over-crossing into Community Park. I'm sure there must have been some discussion of this. --["Users/CarlTesterman"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Davis Bike Loophttp://daviswiki.org/Davis_Bike_Loop2008-08-29 18:46:46WilliamLewisRemoving an old, redundant comment of mine. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Davis Bike Loop<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 39: </td> <td> Line 39: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ------<br> - ''2007-09-04 22:29:16'' [[nbsp]] I don't know the whole route, but I'll write some chunks of it here for other people to use.

["Davis Bicycles"] is responsible for the route. Before the route had painted markings, the route was marked by chalked arrows and the letter "G."<br> + <br> + The route is suitable for walking, jogging or bicycling. It runs mostly on paths and trails, but has some sections on quiet residential streets. The route was chosen to be safe and pleasant, but not fast. It is suitable for casual bicyclists who don't mind going slow and yielding to pedestrians, young riders, old riders, and new riders. It is also great for experienced riders who want a slow, comfortable ride on a sunny day. The route is designed to be used as a navigable route for children, so parents can send their kids across town for a trombone lesson on a safe, easy-to-follow route. If it is your first time following the route, however, it is strongly suggested you pay careful attention to the path markers and look everywhere for them. The path does not take a straight path through the greenbelts and it is easy to get off course because you aren't paying attention and can easily miss a sudden turn.<br> + <br> + If you have a GPS you can upload the [[File(davisbikeloop-whole.gpx)]] file into it if you want to have it route you through the winding courseway.

Several ["The Greenbelt" greenbelts] had already been built, such as the sections in ["Village Homes"] and the ["The Greenbelt" North Davis Greenbelt], but they were not connected in a network and there were no plans to do so. Francis and Greco proposed an suburban greenway system with a loop around the periphery of the city, a second loop several miles out in the country, and spokes radiating out from downtown/campus connecting out to the two rings. Their proposal was adopted as part of the city's ["General Plan"] in the late 80s.<br> + <br> + In the early 1990s, the plan was carefully followed during the building boom greenway components were built whenever land was developed. We are fortunate that Francis and Greco had the vision to propose the greenway and our leaders adopted it, because it would be impossible to retrofit such a system into existing neighborhoods. Unfortunately, the "rural greenway" loop was not advanced as a greenway, though the current ["Open space" open space policy] is a direct result of the original greenway proposal, and since the city owns land or holds conservation easements on it, there is a possibility that the outer loop can still be built. The "spokes" have not been emphasized as much as the greenway loop, but there are fairly good routes connecting the loop to the core in most places.<br> + <br> + In the early 2000s, Francis would offer periodic tours of the greenway, and would always conclude that it was only about 70% done, and probably wouldn't be completed in his lifetime. All of the segments were well-used by neighborhood residents, but as there was no navigation system, people had to learn to find the best route on their own. UC Davis ["Institute for Transportation Studies"] student ["users/chriscongleton" Chris Congleton] marked the route with stenciled arrows in 2003 for a transportation conference, but the ["graffiti"] patrol erased the marks before the conference began. Also in 2003, several improvements were completed on the greenway that made a complete, navigable route around the entire city (Putah Parkway tunnel under the railroad tracks, section by Meadowbrook School, and the 5th St. Tunnel/Mace Ranch Park in 2005). Without any fanfare, and without anyone really noticing, the greenway loop became complete to the point where it was functional and usable as an inter-neighborhood transportation route.<br> + <br> + In 2007, Davis is hosting the [http://walkbikecalifornia.org] and Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals [http://www.apbp.org] conferences in September.

It created a nice sense of exploration and ownership and community. We met and talked to several different people, including 2 older ladies who were out exploring the loop.

Anyway, the loop is certainly fantastic. It does make some interesting choices, though. I was sure it was going to turn north into the ["Northstar Greenbelt"] as it's one of the best sections of paths in Davis. But it didn't and headed down 14th instead.

I have only been biking now for about four weeks since I moved here and just have an Electra Townie 3 speed cruiser and love this loop and was able to do it all (except for a bit of walking on the Dave Pelz overcrossing). I start near Mace Ranch where it winds through charming residential areas along Loyola and Drexel-all the little old houses, which also avoids that wicked J street hill on Covell; then it winds around the other side of the North Davis Elementary school along 14th St &amp; Villanova, finally turning through Sycamore Park and Arroyo Park and hitting that very cool stretch of bike path that winds through the community gardens and co-ops of Village Homes (I had never seen that portion of Davis and doubt I would just by car!). After that you hit beautiful green farms along side you on Evenstar, turning down through a great trek through portions of the UC Davis campus (catching some of the buildings, the art and those egghead sculptures)and then scenic shots of the arboretum. Coming out the Arboretum you follow along the Putah Creek and more rich farmland, wind through a few more residential parks until you hit the Dave Pelz overcrossing and are back at the beginning.<br> + <br> + This loop is great for anyone who comes to visit-even if they haven't biked for a while as long as you take it slow it still only takes 2 hours to complete.

Got us from West Davis to South Davis and back with no need to look at any maps or any worries about getting lost or needing to deal with unsafe spots. It created a nice sense of exploration and ownership and community. We met and talked to several different people, including 2 older ladies who were out exploring the loop. People are discovering this loop--it's a great ride. The pathways--largely off-street--are beautiful and it really makes you proud of Davis.<br> - --MikeR<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-09-18 06:41:35'' [[nbsp]] I have also completed a tour of the loop (though not all in one day due to other tasks; the map above was actually hand-pieced together from various days of GPS tracks). Anyway, the loop is certainly fantastic. It does make some interesting choices, though. I was sure it was going to turn north into the ["Northstar Greenbelt"] as it's one of the best sections of paths in Davis. But it didn't and headed down 14th instead. Overall, though, the loop is certainly a great trip. --["Users/WesHardaker"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-11-02 00:53:11'' [[nbsp]] Already many of the green markings are fading away. Using signposts (or road marking quality coatings) would be better. Corresponding, taking out the overly superfluous routings would help as well. --["Users/jimc"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-11-25 12:59:45'' [[nbsp]] Wow! This is amazing! I have only been biking now for about four weeks since I moved here and just have an Electra Townie 3 speed cruiser and love this loop and was able to do it all (except for a bit of walking on the Dave Pelz overcrossing). I start near Mace Ranch where it winds through charming residential areas along Loyola and Drexel-all the little old houses, which also avoids that wicked J street hill on Covell; then it winds around the other side of the North Davis Elementary school along 14th St &amp; Villanova, finally turning through Sycamore Park and Arroyo Park and hitting that very cool stretch of bike path that winds through the community gardens and co-ops of Village Homes (I had never seen that portion of Davis and doubt I would just by car!). After that you hit beautiful green farms along side you on Evenstar, turning down through a great trek through portions of the UC Davis campus (catching some of the buildings, the art and those egghead sculptures)and then scenic shots of the arboretum. Coming out the Arboretum you follow along the Putah Creek and more rich farmland, wind through a few more residential parks until you hit the Dave Pelz overcrossing and are back at the beginning.<br> - <br> - This loop is great for anyone who comes to visit-even if they haven't biked for a while as long as you take it slow it still only takes 2 hours to complete. Kudos to the designers! --["Users/Judge"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-03-08 15:40:14'' [[nbsp]] The bike loop is great fun - it is fairly well marked, although we got a bit lost somewhere between the UCD domes and the bike church, but we managed to pick up the trail again.

I have only been biking now for about four weeks since I moved here and just have an Electra Townie 3 speed cruiser and love this loop and was able to do it all (except for a bit of walking on the Dave Pelz overcrossing). I start near Mace Ranch where it winds through charming residential areas along Loyola and Drexel-all the little old houses, which also avoids that wicked J street hill on Covell; then it winds around the other side of the North Davis Elementary school along 14th St &amp; Villanova, finally turning through Sycamore Park and Arroyo Park and hitting that very cool stretch of bike path that winds through the community gardens and co-ops of Village Homes (I had never seen that portion of Davis and doubt I would just by car!). After that you hit beautiful green farms along side you on Evenstar, turning down through a great trek through portions of the UC Davis campus (catching some of the buildings, the art and those egghead sculptures)and then scenic shots of the arboretum. Coming out the Arboretum you follow along the Putah Creek and more rich farmland, wind through a few more residential parks until you hit the Dave Pelz overcrossing and are back at the beginning.<br> + <br> + This loop is great for anyone who comes to visit-even if they haven't biked for a while as long as you take it slow it still only takes 2 hours to complete.

["Davis Bicycles"] is responsible for the route. Before the route had painted markings, the route was marked by chalked arrows and the letter "G."<br> - <br> - The route is suitable for walking, jogging or bicycling. It runs mostly on paths and trails, but has some sections on quiet residential streets. The route was chosen to be safe and pleasant, but not fast. It is suitable for casual bicyclists who don't mind going slow and yielding to pedestrians, young riders, old riders, and new riders. It is also great for experienced riders who want a slow, comfortable ride on a sunny day. The route is designed to be used as a navigable route for children, so parents can send their kids across town for a trombone lesson on a safe, easy-to-follow route. If it is your first time following the route, however, it is strongly suggested you pay careful attention to the path markers and look everywhere for them. The path does not take a straight path through the greenbelts and it is easy to get off course because you aren't paying attention and can easily miss a sudden turn.<br> - <br> - If you have a GPS you can upload the [[File(davisbikeloop-whole.gpx)]] file into it if you want to have it route you through the winding courseway. The map above is the route as displayed within [http://earth.google.com/ google earth], and you can also download the Google Earth File to browse the path yourself: [[File(davisbikeloop-whole.kmz)]] .<br> - <br> - = History =<br> - The system was proposed in the 1980s by Landscape Architecture professor [http://lda.ucdavis.edu/people/websites/francis.html Mark Francis] and his then student (and now ["Landscape architecture"] ["Professor"]) [http://lda.ucdavis.edu/people/websites/greco.html Steve Greco]. Several ["The Greenbelt" greenbelts] had already been built, such as the sections in ["Village Homes"] and the ["The Greenbelt" North Davis Greenbelt], but they were not connected in a network and there were no plans to do so. Francis and Greco proposed an suburban greenway system with a loop around the periphery of the city, a second loop several miles out in the country, and spokes radiating out from downtown/campus connecting out to the two rings. Their proposal was adopted as part of the city's ["General Plan"] in the late 80s.<br> - <br> - In the early 1990s, the plan was carefully followed during the building boom greenway components were built whenever land was developed. We are fortunate that Francis and Greco had the vision to propose the greenway and our leaders adopted it, because it would be impossible to retrofit such a system into existing neighborhoods. Unfortunately, the "rural greenway" loop was not advanced as a greenway, though the current ["Open space" open space policy] is a direct result of the original greenway proposal, and since the city owns land or holds conservation easements on it, there is a possibility that the outer loop can still be built. The "spokes" have not been emphasized as much as the greenway loop, but there are fairly good routes connecting the loop to the core in most places.<br> - <br> - In the early 2000s, Francis would offer periodic tours of the greenway, and would always conclude that it was only about 70% done, and probably wouldn't be completed in his lifetime. All of the segments were well-used by neighborhood residents, but as there was no navigation system, people had to learn to find the best route on their own. UC Davis ["Institute for Transportation Studies"] student ["users/chriscongleton" Chris Congleton] marked the route with stenciled arrows in 2003 for a transportation conference, but the ["graffiti"] patrol erased the marks before the conference began. Also in 2003, several improvements were completed on the greenway that made a complete, navigable route around the entire city (Putah Parkway tunnel under the railroad tracks, section by Meadowbrook School, and the 5th St. Tunnel/Mace Ranch Park in 2005). Without any fanfare, and without anyone really noticing, the greenway loop became complete to the point where it was functional and usable as an inter-neighborhood transportation route.<br> - <br> - In 2007, Davis is hosting the [http://walkbikecalifornia.org] and Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals [http://www.apbp.org] conferences in September. The ["Davis Bicycles"] group thought it would be beneficial to invite the attendees on a self-guided tour of the greenway, and suggested to City Council and Public Works that the mostly-complete greenway was now ready to be marked.

This is amazing! I have only been biking now for about four weeks since I moved here and just have an Electra Townie 3 speed cruiser and love this loop and was able to do it all (except for a bit of walking on the Dave Pelz overcrossing). I start near Mace Ranch where it winds through charming residential areas along Loyola and Drexel-all the little old houses, which also avoids that wicked J street hill on Covell; then it winds around the other side of the North Davis Elementary school along 14th St &amp; Villanova, finally turning through Sycamore Park and Arroyo Park and hitting that very cool stretch of bike path that winds through the community gardens and co-ops of Village Homes (I had never seen that portion of Davis and doubt I would just by car!). After that you hit beautiful green farms along side you on Evenstar, turning down through a great trek through portions of the UC Davis campus (catching some of the buildings, the art and those egghead sculptures)and then scenic shots of the arboretum. Coming out the Arboretum you follow along the Putah Creek and more rich farmland, wind through a few more residential parks until you hit the Dave Pelz overcrossing and are back at the beginning.<br> + <br> + This loop is great for anyone who comes to visit-even if they haven't biked for a while as long as you take it slow it still only takes 2 hours to complete.
