A California Cycling Destination

Make the Central Valley, Motherlode and Sierra a Tourism Cycling Destination

What’s your wish list for the future of bicycling in California? Share your ideas, via Zoom, at one of our Interregional Cycling Tourism Community Outreach Workshops and Stakeholder Meetings.

The Interregional Bicycle Tourism Study, a project of Caltrans has identified five showcase areas in the Central Valley, the Motherlode and the Sierra on which to focus plans to make cycling safer, more comfortable, and more fun.

Read about the proposed showcase areas by downloading this PDF.

We need your help to learn as much as we can about these areas! We’re relying on you, an actual cyclist who has ridden the roads, to tell us what needs to change and what that change should look like. We want our proposals to reflect the experience and needs of bicyclists and lead to real progress in making Northern California a premier cycling destination.

You will join other stakeholders—recreational cyclists, business owners, tourism, civic leaders, and government officials—who all want to encourage cycling for a better local economy, and a healthy resource for residents and visitors alike. We strongly encourage you to participate in this exciting and ground-breaking opportunity to shape the future of cycling recreation in California.

Please feel free to forward this invitation to others you feel may be interested. If you know someone we ought to invite, please send me their contact information. And by all means, register with the link above, or let me know via email if you are interested in participating in a workshop!

Agenda items for the upcoming Cycling Tourism Workshop and Stakeholders Meetings

  • Identify Priority Routes: Share the proposed routes and seek suggestions

  • Identify Priority Improvements: Seek input on which potential improvements are highest priorities.

  • Identify Bicycle Tourism Regional Assets: Gather input from the community and other stakeholders about recreational, historical, culinary, and other attractions that would be useful in promoting the region to bicyclists.

Make your voice heard! We look forward to your input.
