Marin County Bicycle Coalition
Since 1998, Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC) has been steadily improving our county’s roads, multi-use pathways, and off-road facilities for cyclists and pedestrians. Over the years we have seen the impact of their 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.
For the past 10 years, Studio Velo has been an ongoing financial supporter of the Marin County Bicycle Coalition and last year we took another step to support the MCBC by creating The Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin. MCBC is the exclusive non-profit partner of The Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin, a partnership that will help drive MCBC’s efforts, from building a larger network of safe trails and paths throughout the county to deeper and more comprehensive education and Safe Route to School programs. By participating in The Jensie, you will be directly supporting The Marin County Bicycle Coalition.
You can also support them in their effort in expanding off-road access by signing up for the Dirt Fondo of Marin. The funds from this ride series directly support MCBC's Off-Road Program.
MCBC’s work improves our quality of life in many ways:
- increased opportunities for daily physical activity,
- teaching your children to be skilled and safe bike riders,
- reduced road congestion and greenhouse gas emissions,
- transportation equity for our low-income neighbors
