Biking

Bike Trails and Lanes

The City of Irvine provides a system of 61.8 miles of off-street bikeway trails and 301 lane miles of on-street bikeways to encourage the use of the bicycle as a safe and convenient means of transportation for both commuting and recreational purposes.

Reducing Carbon Emissions in the City

The City recognizes the benefits of bicycling as an alternative mode of transportation resulting in reduced carbon emissions, environmental enhancements and increased health benefits for all members of the community. In the near future, the City plans to launch a comprehensive safety education program promoting walking and bicycling to elementary and middle school age children.

In June 2009, the League of American Bicyclists named the City of Irvine a Bicycle Friendly Community, the first such distinction given in Orange County.
