Nor Cal guys: Can I get from Sacramento to Bethel Island?cory
Oct 8, 2001 4:10 PM
Got a week of vacation and nothing much to do (got to go by the end of the year, and I want to do it while the weather is good). My dad lives in Elk Grove, and I have other relatives on Bethel Island. How can I get from one to the other without having to deal with the Antioch Bridge? Any other suggestions for day rides around the Delta or into the foothills would be welcome, too.
Thanks

It looks like the only road onto Bethel Island comes from the South. Bethel Island is a fair bit East of Antioch and has some sort of bridge or viaduct for access. The Antioch Bridge connects to Sherman Island. I've ridden as far as Byron, which is due South of Bethel Island, but that's as close as I've gotten. It's pretty flat out there. You could probably get onto the flanks of Mt. Diablo using Bethel Island as a base. Marsh Creek Road, Morgan Territory, and Vasco would be some of the roads to check out.
