Legislative & Government Affairs

The latest policy and legislation impacting bike-friendly trails in California.

California Mountain Biking Coalition was launched, in part, to provide leadership in lobbying the state and federal legislature on relevant bills and budget actions, as well as proactively sponsoring legislation that impacts access to public lands and natural resource conservation. We support legislation that protects natural resources and acknowledges humankind’s place in the world.
