10 – Volunteers donated over 3,000 hours at 87 eventsThat’s people like you advocating for safer streets and trail access on Mt. Tam, keeping riders safe, fed and happy at events, and programs that get more kids on bikes. Thank you!

9 – 42 elementary schools participated in Ruby Bridges Day to promote courage, resilience and kindness while making connections about transportation and equity in the work we do. 

8 –  Liberty Gulch Trail – The new connector trail under construction on Azalea Hill moved closer to completion this year thanks to over 100 hours of service by MCBC volunteers!

1 – Cascade Bridges Approved!  The long-awaited plan to place bridges over the San Anselmo Creek in Fairfax’s Cascade Canyon moved one step closer to reality!
