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.
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.
The Safe Routes to Schools Program improves the quality of life for entire school communities through education, encouragement and infrastructure improvements. Presented in partnership with the Transportation Authority of Marin, Safe Routes teaches cycling skills and promotes healthy lifestyles, while championing green transportation.
While the MCBC Experience is part of every ride, clinic or workshop we put on, MCBC Signature Events bring cycling enthusiasts together on an even larger scale! Whether you are helping a newer rider on Bike to Work Day, exploring trails on a Dirt Fondo ride, rolling over roads with an international cycling star at The Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin, or coming together with other enthusiasts at our annual celebration of the bike at Biketoberfest Marin, our Signature Events capture the flavor and character of what makes riding here so special.
