Our Bike Scene
Fort Bragg and surrounding areas provide some great terrain for cycling and mountain biking whether you are looking for an easy glide around town, or seeking more challenging terrain. The recently completed Pudding Creek Trestle now bridges the town with the seaside recreational path called the California Coastal Trail. The path begins just south of the Pudding Creek trestle and extends north past several oceanfront motels up to MacKerricher State Park and Ten Mile Beach. Riders can pick up the convenient trail in town and avoid the highway automobile traffic.
Each year, hundreds of bicycle tourists pass through Fort Bragg during their journey along Highway One, one of the most spectacular oceanfront highways in the world. Fort Bragg offers many different motels and campgrounds just off of the Highway for a layover.
Mendocino Coast Cyclists / SOBs
Mendocino Coast Cyclists is made up of 40 enthusiastic riders of all ages and experience. They schedule regular rides each week and visitors are welcome to join. A group ride is usually held at 11 a.m. every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.
Contact Roo Harris for a schedule of trails and rides at email@example.com or visit the local bike club’s Facebook page (Mendocino Coast Cyclists) for a schedule.
The SOBs (Seniors on Bikes) is an affiliate group that gather every day at 10 am for a 10-mile ride on the Haul Road, followed by coffee and a cookie; occasionally lunch. They meet in the parking lot by the Skunk Train, behind the North Coast Brewing Company. Longer rides held about once or twice a month. The Haul Road is paved and flat, running along the ocean through MacKerricher State Park.

New Trail Guide
Says Author Roo Harris, who also guides mountain biking trips for Mendocino Bike Sprite: “I am dedicated to making recreation a means of supporting the coastal communities. The guidebook will help local residents as well as our guest from other areas to enjoy the JDSF (Jackson Demonstration State Forest) and State Parks here on the coast.
Please contact me with any questions regarding the guidebook or how we support mountain biking in our communities.
