Description:     Take the 8:10am train to Martinez for a ride around Carquinez Straits and onto Suisun City (40 miles, 1275 ft) for a train ride back to Sac.  There's also a short option (23 miles, 1250 ft) that is scenic and goes across both the Carquinez and Benicia bridges.  This route goes on the old CarquinezScenic Drive, which now has a section of class I bike trail.  While nothing epic and rather short ride compared to usual rides, the route is scenic and interesting for those who haven't ridden in this area.
