The Tiburon Bike Train

Tiburon Bike Train logo

The Town of Tiburon has launched a pilot program to run bike trains along the old Rail Trail from downtown Belvedere/Tiburon to Bel Aire School. Adult Cycling "Conductors" and Volunteers will escort and support students to school every Wednesday.

Your child’s participation is absolutely free of charge. After registering for the
program your child will receive a sticker to identify him or her as a participant.
The rest is easy. Just show up at one of the designated pick up spots. We invite
you to travel along with your child.

While the bike train is focused on Bel Aire students, Del Mar and Reed students
are welcome to join in. However, all Reed students must be accompanied by an
adult to participate.

Crossing Guards will be present for safe crossings

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who are the “Conductors”?

A: “Conductors” are LCIs (League of American Bicyclist Cycling Instructors) with first aid, CPR and/or EMT certifications, background checks and basic mechanical skills. They carry cell phones and are accessible at any time through text and voice.

Q: Will the bike train go any other day or in the afternoon?

A: The “Conductors” will only be present on Wednesday mornings. The hope is to grow bike trains organically. Parents are encouraged to organize their own bike trains on other days and in the afternoon.

Q: I want to send my child by bike but he/she is not skilled or strong enough. What can I do about this?

A: Children can learn bicycling skills through the WheelEscape bike clubs or through private lessons. Visit for more information.

Q: How do I know my child can keep up?

A: If your child can ride at an average pace of 8 to 10 mph. they will be fine. If they can’t ride that fast we encourage you to come along. We will designate at least one volunteer to ride with the slower group.
