The Marin Century Bike Ride dates back to 1963 when a group of hardy Marin County bicyclists attempted the novel idea of organizing a 100-mile bike ride through the hills of Marin County.

In 2005, due to its growing popularity, the ride collected more in registration fees than was needed to pay the bills. That is when the volunteers decided to use surplus funds to support our community.

Since that time the Marin Cyclists have given over $450,000 to local youth, cycling and other non-profit organizations that serve our community.

The Marin Century is organized, managed and run entirely by volunteers. In its 58-year history, over 40,000 bike riders have enjoyed the scenery, camaraderie, food and challenge of the group rides.

Thank you volunteers, participants and sponsors who have made this event possible! Together we can make a difference.

You can try out one of our club rides at anytime. We have all level rides that can range from 20 miles to 100 miles.
