The county road system connects the backend of Yolo County and is a great way to see the outskirts of Davis and beyond. County roads are an OK place to ride your bike. While the scenery is often good, and the traffic low (depending on the road), there is no bike lane and you might run the risk of being decapitated by farm equipment. You might also be sprayed by a crop duster (although the dusting shouldn't hurt you). If you do go out exploring the outskirts of town and the county roads, be sure to take a camera with you and bring back some photos for the wiki!

The numbering system for the County Roads works as follows:

  • East/West integer roads -  Numbered from 1 (along the border with Colusa County) to 39, increasing from north to south.
  • Cross-Cache Canyon roads - Numbered from 40 (at Fiske Creek) to 82 (foothills), increasing semi-irregularly along Highway 16 from northwest to southeast. Numbers continue as:
  • North/South integer roads -Numbered 83 (west of Capay) to 106 (near the Yolo Bypass levee), increasing from west to east across the valley floor.
  • Sacramento floodways roads - Numbered from 108 (west of Tyndall Landing) to 161 (near Prospect Slough), increasing semi-irregularly north to south along the Sacramento River.

Integer Roads are one mile apart in the Outskirts near Davis. Letters increase from A to H.

Sunflowers are just one of the many crops that can be seen off of the county roads. 6/18/05
