Yet Another Reason Davis Should Be Selected for the Bicycling Hall of Fame

Davis is just an incredible bike town.  There is good reason it is one of two finalists for being the host city of the Bicycling Hall of Fame.  And here is one example of why it should win — the bike paths and bike lanes around town make this city great for commuting on ones bike.  Here are some pictures I took yesterday of my favorite bike ride to work.  It is a little bit out of the way but it is worth it.  About 7 or so miles total each way and it only has ~ 4 road crossings and one short stretch of a few hundred yards on a bike lane – and the rest is on off road bike paths.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
