There are only two bridges left without protected bike lanes now.
The San Mateo Bridge and the Carquinez Straits bridge.


I've never seen a cyclist on the Carquinez Bridge. That sounds like
a suicide mission to me, like this section on I-5:

Have you tried cycling the Carquinez Bridge?

It is a protected bike path on the bridge with concrete barriers to
separate them from the cars. Sort of like on the Oakland span of the
bay bridge.

It's weird. I crossed that new span more than a dozen times over the
years and never noticed any pedestrians or cyclists. The barrier isn't
too high for that, just like on the bike path to Davis along I-80. That
one is very long so usually you see a rider or two when driving towards
the Bay Area.

The problem with those paths is often the connecting infrastructure.
West Sacramento is not very bike-friendly but we have to cross it to get
to Davis.

I don't remember any bike paths to Davis only sideroads.


It's a long and boring path directly next to I-80. Starts at 8:50min:

There's be no other year-round path or road because that whole area
below is a flood basin and underwater during snow-melt season.
