El Dorado Trail

[See this trail map in Google Maps]

Hello, my name is Bob Molinari (Aka, “Bicycle Bob”) and I bought Placerville Bike Shop 33 years ago.  A California native, I grew up in Santa Rosa riding my Schwinn Varsity all over Sonoma County.  Those days I could ride all over town and not get run over by speeding cars or better yet, speeding cars driven by texting teenagers.  It goes without saying, times have changed, and these days most parent’s won’t let their kids of any age ride on the street.  They are not free to roam and experience this kind of freedom that we did as kids.  TRAILS PROVIDE A SAFE PLACE FOR KIDS!

At Placerville Bike Shop we work on approximately 1000 bikes a year and sell 300-400.  We can see that despite changing times bicycling remains to be a very popular activity.  During the summer months people from outside the arewa contact the shop inquiring about local rides.  Many of my customers drive to Sacramento to ride the American River trail, and spend lots of money on restaurants and shopping in that area.  TRAILS WILL HELP BOOST OUR ECONOMY AND KEEP THE MONEY IN OUR COMMUNITY!
