The Bay Area is a great place to explore by bicycle. Understanding the challenges and opportunities of cycling in each city will help ensure your experiences behind the handlebars are comfortable and safe. We've also listed some excellent cycling organizations, which provide knowledge to new and experienced riders alike. We encourage every cyclist to be engaged, informed, and confident when they steer onto shared roadways.
