Marin Cyclists Beneficiaries and Partners
We are the cyclists improving your rides since 1998. The Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC) has been steadily improving our county’s road and path facilities for walkers and bikers since we formed in 1998. You’ve seen the impact of our advocacy efforts in each of our towns: permanent bike racks, bike lane striping, green-and-white bike route signs, road resurfacing, ‘sharrow’ road stencils, and so much more. Marin County Bicycle Coalition goal is for 20% of all trips in Marin to be made by walking or bicycling.
The NorCal High School League www.norcalmtb.org
The NorCal High School League was organized to provide a well defined race season for junior racers and to promote the formation of teams at public high schools. With the cooperation of local race promoters and our sponsors we are able to provide the best cross-country junior race series in the United States. The League is working to make high school racing the easiest way for juniors to get involved in the challenging and exciting world of competitive cycling. We believe that mountain biking is the 'T-Ball' of our sport and in addition to succeeding at the international level of mountain biking, we've also seen many League athletes go on to succeed in road racing and collegiate cycling. Several League alumni athletes are now racing on professional teams at events like the Tour of California and the Sea Otter Classic
