2 Clicks 2 Action: 

Mount Tam is credited as the birthplace of mountain biking however mountain biking on single track has been banned since the 80's.... until now. Marin County advocates have been using the resources of Tom Ward and IMBA CA to create a trail proposal to open more single track to mountain bikes in State Parks in Marin County.

Please help Marin County advocates by submitting comments on the trail proposal. Click on the "2 clicks 2 Action" link in the attached message to easily submit your comments. It will only take a few minutes of your time and it will help towards opening more legal single track in Marin County.

See this link for more details:


IMBA California is opening trails across the state. Now, we need your voice to reopen four Marin-area singletracks where mountain bikers have been banished for over a decade. It's about time we're allowed back into mountain biking's birthplace.

Take Action
Your strong voice is essential to winning this landmark opportunity. IMBA's Marin County request has ruffled the feathers of anti-bike groups who have already announced their opposition and are building a case to exclude riders like us. All California residents are urged to take action:
  • File Comments
    Formally file your comments with California State Parks. IMBA's simple form is just one screen and will submit your official comments. Deadline is June 30.
  • Sign the Singletrack Petition
    Add your name in support of opening these four trails, plus many others across the states.
  • Rally Fellow Riders
    Ask your friends and riding partners to echo your voice and bolster support for singletrack.
  • Donate
    IMBA's California Fund bankrolls one righteous goal: create exceptional mountain biking experiences in the Golden State.
California State Parks' deadline for comments is June 30th and they need to hear from you. This is the cornerstone of IMBA California's push to open more trails across the state and it requires a volley of support from all riders to set a bike-friendly precedent.

Singletrack at Stake
The four trails we're working to open:
  • McKennan Gulch Trail at Mount Tamalpais State Park
  • Easy Grade Trail at Mount Tamalpais State Park
  • Bill's Trail at Samuel P. Taylor State Park - Alternate Days
  • Mt. Burdell Trail at Olompali State Historic Park
More information and details about each trail are available through Access4Bikes.
