How does your business benefit from bicyclists?

At RCU we believe in promoting good health and an active lifestyle for the whole family. We love that the Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC) helps children and adults learn to ride safely on the road and navigate the streets, creating courteous and confident riders.

What should bicycle riders know about your business?

At Redwood Credit Union our mission is to passionately serve the best interests of our Members and help put you on the financial path to pursue your goals and dreams. We want to help you afford the bike you want to reduce your environmental impact and save money on gas, car maintenance, and parking fees.

We offer bike loans with amounts up to $20,000. Please visit our website to see the most current rates and terms.

Are there any last words or final thoughts that you would like to share?

Redwood Credit Union was founded on the philosophy of “people helping people” and offers a range of benefits that extend far beyond traditional banking services to help you pursue your financial dreams and goals with confidence and peace of mind. Newsweek has included RCU in its list of “America’s Best Credit Unions,” and we were recently named one of the most innovative credit unions in America by In the past year, RCU has been honored as the healthiest Credit Union in California and the sixth healthiest nationally, a testament to our dedication to sound financial practices and Member satisfaction.

We are deeply rooted in the communities we serve, and we strive to connect with them in many ways, including our Day of Impact last fall when 850 RCU team members came together to build 418 bikes, then donated them to children in the area who may not have otherwise had means to get a bike.
