Access 4 Bikes’ Ales and Trails is back this May

Access 4 Bikes (A4B) is a non-profit trail advocacy group in Marin that is dedicated to improving the Marin mountain bike experience both now and for the future. Unfortunately, mountain biking in Marin is sometimes portrayed as out of place on public lands, tolerated rather than celebrated.

Mountain bike access in Marin is largely relegated to over-grade, rutted fire roads, many of which were built decades ago when recreation and environmental protection were scarcely considered. Such fire roads are not only less enjoyable, but they are less safe than narrow trails, which inherently keep speeds down while also drastically reducing environmental impacts. 

A4B works to empower Marin mountain bikers to get fair and reasonable access to public trails. They believe in sharing trails with other user groups, and are happy and willing to lead the way in trail stewardship and environmental protection with their growing demographic and enthusiastic volunteer corps.

Ales and Trails 2022

A4B is excited to bring back their Ales and Trails event this May with JamBar as their title sponsor. There will be a beer garden and awesome food that will be on point to accompany the tasty beverages. There will be demo bikes on site,  as well as guides and organized rides to take you on a sweet ride — or you are welcome to ride on your own. This is a family friendly event.

Join A4B on May 7, 2022 and enjoy the live music, the famous kids race, and reconnect with 400 of your closest friends to celebrate the success and struggles of opening more trails to mountain bikes in Marin County. 

$75 includes demo bikes, group rides, barbecue lunch, craft beer garden with commemorative glass, event socks, live music and more. Kids are FREE as always!
