I’d like to introduce you to the Motherlode Bicycle Coalition (MLBC) and invite you to BikeMotherlode.
The MLBC is an association sponsored by the California Bicycle Coalition Education Fund, a project of CalBike. We represent Mariposa, Tuolumne, Calaveras, and Amador counties. We have 23 members, with a five member volunteer board and a volunteer executive director.
Our mission is to increase safe roads for cycling, host bike rides and cycling events, and promote the Motherlode as a premiere bike-riding destination. We offer monthly group rides of varying degrees of difficulty, as well as bike-safety courses and family-oriented events.
MLBC also provides another important resource for bike advocacy at the MLBC Bike Valley to Sierra website, https://www.bikevalleytosierra.com
This website features the Caltrans and CalBike Bike Riding Tourism Report and Signature Bike Projects in San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Tuolumne, Calaveras and Alpine counties.
With miles of rural roads, beautiful scenery, and back-country trails, the Motherlode has always been a hidden gem for bicycle riding.
Pre-pandemic, there were seven bike events that occurred in Caltrans District 10. While many of those events have been put on hold, three of these events are scheduled in 2022. We hope to see you there!
