Wheelhouse: The Pacific Electric Trail

The Pacific Electric Trail, once part of its namesake railroad, is a 20-mile, car-free bike path threading six cities. Bike the entire route in one big day or pedal a segment of it so you have more time to explore some sites and grab some bites. Here are three distinct sections of the Pacific Electric Trail. Ride on!
