Bicycling

The City of San Marcos is dedicated to increasing bicycle use by expanding safe, convenient, and fun bike lanes and trails for all ages and abilities throughout the City.

Complete Streets


To facilitate the development of new bike facilities, the Transportation Department incorporates the strategy of Complete Streets. Complete Streets are streets designed for everyone. They are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users of all ages and abilities, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders. The Transportation Department evaluates all department projects scheduled for paving or reconstruction for Complete Street elements including new bike and pedestrian facilities.

Bike & Trail System


The City's bike and trail system connects resident and visitors to more than 1,700 acres of breath-taking parks, our pristine spring-fed river, the university, our historic downtown, and world-renowned shopping. We hope you enjoy your bicycling experience in San Marcos.
