Hey nice photos.

If you're looking for another adventure in the area, try "AmtrakBack". We start in Rancho Codova, buying tickets in SAC, but you could do Davis as well....

Park in Davis at Amtrak, buy a one-way ticket from Suisun to Davis. Ride south from Davis to Dixon, then North to Cantelow Road/Pleasant's Valley. Refuel at Solano Creek Park outside Winters. Climb 128 to the Dam, stay on 128 to Moskowites Corner, then take 121 to Wooden Valley, Gordon Valley, Mankas Corner, Oliver, Second, Texas...into Suisuin and take Amtrak Back. Enjoy a taco and beer while waiting for the train.

one of my favorite rides.... you could also do the Davis/PutahCreek/Winters-SteadyEddies thing rather than Dixon. Once in Winters go south along 505 to Peaceful Glen/Cantelow, and complete the loop on Pleasants Valley back to Solano Creek Park before climbing 128 to the dam.

It's 100 miles for us from Rancho so probably 75 from Davis to Suisun.

I'll have to try that. How hard is it to get a bike onto Amtrak? Do they make it easy for you? Sounds like it could be a lot of fun.
Easy. Every other door on the side of the train has a bike logo on the side, enter one of those doors. An attendant jumps off the train at every platform, there to serve anyone who needs help while boarding. You're in good hands.
