See you there!

“The Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC) invites the public to join in the celebration of the completion of the Cal Park Tunnel, a $27 million alternative transportation facility. The tunnel will provide a safe, easy and fast connection between San Rafael and Larkspur for bicyclists and pedestrians and will eventually accommodate the SMART train.

A ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the County of Marin and SMART will take place at the south portal (near the Century Larkspur Landing movie theater) at 3 pm on Friday, December 10, followed by bike rides through the tunnel and a post-event gathering at Marin Brewing Company.

Join us for this momentous occasion as we celebrate the completion of a major gap in Marin’s bicycle network and the North-South Greenway. The Cal Park Tunnel has been a vision of MCBC since the organization formed 12 years ago and for local bike advocates for at least a decade prior to our incorporating. The conversion of an old railroad tunnel for bicycle and pedestrian use was a dream that’s been realized, and we encourage everyone to come celebrate this major accomplishment.

Join a bicycle procession to the Cal Park Tunnel opening!
