Ales and Trails

MAY 7, 2023 •. 8:00 am to 4:00 pm

Ales and Trails 2023 will bring mountain bikers and trail enthusiasts together to support Access4Bikes’ and Access4Bikes Foundation’s work in Marin County and throughout Northern California. As usual, there will be an epic Beer Garden with some of the top local craft brews from around the Bay Area, and of course the food will be on point to accompany the tasty beverages!

Don’t just drool over the brew and food, we have a host of bicycle industry partners on hand to help you with the ride of your dreams. Demo bikes will be on site and we will have 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 (kids are free.) Come 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. Don’t just take our word for it, see it for yourself on the 6th of May, 2023. See you there!


$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!

Roy Tuscany suffered a spinal injury in 2006. After his recovery he founded @hi5sfoundation, a non-profit that has helped hundreds of injured athletes and veterans from across the country. ⁠

“The massive thing I’ve recognized through this work is that sports are a byproduct of community,” Tuscany explains. “We know that if we can get people back to sport, we can use sport as a vehicle to get them back to community and social interaction. We use sport as a way to integrate people back into … people.”⁠

We hope you and yours are having a great holiday season.⁠

📆As we near the end of 2022, here are some highlights by our contributing editor Matt Johanson — pictured here. ⁠

🎉 2022 saw the pandemic recede, wildfires decrease and outdoor recreation dramatically improve as a result. ⁠

🌈 California opened the door to increased outdoor opportunities by committing $57 million for underprivileged people in 125 communities. ⁠

🏂🏼 The Outdoor Access for All initiative will fund access to nature, outdoor leadership education and career pathways. Thousands of people will experience hiking, camping, kayaking, snowboarding and more as a result. ⁠

🏕️ “These programs will turn parks into outdoor classrooms, inspiring a new generation of environmental leadership in California,” said California State Parks Director Armando Quintero.⁠

Regular ASJ contributor Krista Houghton has always been on the lookout for trash on her outdoor adventures. 🏞⁠

This past year, she’s bumped up her efforts – accompanied by her husband – by getting out in her own neighborhood with a trash bag and picker. What started as a downer as she made her neighborhood rounds has developed into a sense of pride in caring for the area she lives in. 🏡 ⁠

Imagine the good vibes and clean public places if we all followed Krista’s example! 💓⁠
