Biking in Ventura County

Bike to Work Week - May 14-18

Don’t miss out on Bike to Work Week. Visit our interactive bike map above or download the Ventura County Bikeways app to help you find the best route. Android

Whether you’re a regular cyclist or new to the road, VCTC would like to hear about your experience biking to work. Let us know your ideas to improve Ventura County’s bike paths here.


Biking is fun, economical, and convenient. Whether you ride for pleasure, sport, exercise, or transportation, it's something a whole family can do together. It's also a great way to get or stay in shape. And given the diverse topography within Ventura County, the experience can be as easy or as challenging as you wish.

 

For some Ventura County residents, cycling is an appealing alternative to commuting by car or bus. Cycling to work or school reduces the number of cars on the road and helps protect our air quality. Concern for the environment has prompted government agencies like the Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC) to endorse cycling for both recreation and commuting.
