Advocacy brings cyclists' collective voice to life. We advocate vigorously for increased bicycle and pedestrian funding, interconnected routes, and policies to enable a great ride. We are always looking forward, working to build a bike-friendly Marin.
Confidence leads to a great experience on the bike. We help build new rider confidence through safety and skills education- from classes teaching parents how to share the joy of cycling with their children, to programs demonstrating the benefits of green transportation.
Every new cyclist is a power for good. We provide the opportunities and environment to support Marin's diverse cycling community. Our network of events is a central hub for cyclists of all ages and skill levels to connect, learn, ride, and have fun.
Whether you are a daily commuter or just take occasional trips to the grocery store, new bike lanes and expanded pathways allow you to ride with confidence.
Safety education and bike-friendly infrastructure make it easy to enjoy Marin's communities, parks and scenery by bike.
Expanding and improving Marins trails network invites you to connect with nature and indulge your taste for adventure.
From newly paved routes to inspiring events, we smooth the way for you to connect with like-minded cyclists and take your rides to the next level.
Our work also benefits pedestrians. We make walking safer and more pleasant by expanding pedestrian access and connectivity.
The Road Advocacy Program builds the political support needed to identify, promote and fund bike and pedestrian improvements in Marin. Safety and connectivity between communities are the driving themes. We work closely with our public agency partners toward completing the North-South and East-West Greenways, Marin's primary bicycle and pedestrian routes.
The Off-Road Program expands mountain biking opportunities through education, environmental stewardship and trail development. We are committed to bridging gaps in Marin's trails network, while also maintaining and restoring existing trails. This effort is guided by the vision of one day riding from the Golden Gate Bridge to Point Reyes, all off-road.
Safe Routes to Schools promotes access to safe and healthy travel to schools. Founded by Marin County Bicycle Coalition in 2000, the program is now nationwide. Since 2005, Safe Routes to Schools is a program of the Transportation Authority of Marin and MCBC serves as the subcontractor for the education and encouragement components at 55 schools. Safe Routes to Schools teaches over 10,000 students pedestrian and bicycle safety classes annually and hosts over 350 events to encourage students to walk, bike, bus, or carpool to schools.
