The pure geography of Alpine County provides a perfect environment for biking and walking for leisure and recreation. The nationally acclaimed cycling event, The Death Ride, annually brings over 3500 people to the region to cycle over 5 high Sierra passes over 129 miles in one day. This event not only covers the region with bicyclists on the day of the ride, but many come to Alpine County throughout the year to train on the exceptional road routes the region has on offer. Additionally, with two major recreational draws of Bear Valley and Kirkwood Mountain Resorts, there is a strong community of road and mountain bikers, hikers and cross country skiers that need safe crossings of State Highways and connected facilities for efficient and enjoyable experiences. The entire County is littered with campgrounds and trailheads serving wilderness areas, lakes, creeks meadows, and mountains.  Green DOT is developing an Active Transportation Plan using community input and our planning, funding and project delivery experience to develop an implementable bicycle and pedestrian master plan. The plan will include project lists and programs with associated funding and implementation strategies. We are also working to improve driver awareness of cyclists on rural roadways through educational seminars and physical infrastructure projects.
