Mountain Bike Rides


The Bay Area is where mountain biking began, and we're truly blessed to have some of the best singletrack in the world. From Marin to Santa Cruz to local East Bay spots, there's a ton of great mountain bike trails to explore.

Joaquin Miller Park

Joaquin Miller Park is a place we should feel lucky to have. As mountain bikers in the Bay Area, trail access is limited. NO BIKES signs are as prevalent as rocks, roots, and Oak leaves. Joaquin Miller Park is a small park in the Oakland hills, maintained by the City of Oakland and a lot of dedicated volunteers. It has many trails, almost all of which are open to bikes. Legal singletrack? You bet. A good amount of it.
