Marin Cyclists Club
Connecting cyclists since 1963


We Give Back to our Community

The Marin Cyclists hosts the Marin Century for the pure enjoyment of cycling and to give back to the community. The organizers of the Marin Century are all volunteers; there is no paid staff.  Here are the organizations we're proud to support!
 Marin County Bicycle Coalition 501(c)(3)

We are the cyclists improving your rides since 1998. The Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC) has been steadily improving our county’s road and path facilities for walkers and bikers since we formed in 1998. You’ve seen the impact of our advocacy efforts in each of our towns: permanent bike racks, bike lane striping, green-and-white bike route signs, road resurfacing, ‘sharrow’ road stencils, and so much more. Marin County Bicycle Coalition goal is for 20% of all trips in Marin to be made by walking or bicycling.

Trips for Kids 501(c)(3)

For more than 24 years, Trips For Kids®(TFK®) Marin has been providing lessons in self-confidence, environmental awareness, and healthy habits to disadvantaged youth through the simple act of having fun on mountain bikes. Trips For Kids started in Marin and has grown into an international organization with more than 70 chapters operating in the United States, Canada, and Israel.

Trips For Kids Marin serves at-risk youth throughout the San Francisco Bay area, working with over 300 local organizations. The core offering of mountain bike rides is supplemented by the Earn-A-Bike programs and the Re-Cyclery bicycle thrift shop.
