BICYCLING & BIKE ACCOMIDATIONS
"Life is like a ten-speed bicycle; most of us have gears we never even use"

Ride and Park your bikes at our secure facility under the tent at the Main Stage of the Festival.
RIDE SHARING APPLICATIONS
"I think the key to life, is to just enjoy the ride while you are on it"
Johney Depp, American Actor
Where public transit fails, and because parking near the festival is somewhat limited, we encourage our patrons to consider Ride-Sharing. Secure applications like Lyft and Uber are tried and tested ride sharing applications you and your family may want to consider.
"Sometimes that light at the end of the tunnerl--is a train"
Charels Barkley, American Basketball Player
Recently, the San FranciscoChronicle has reported that the construction of the Sonoma Marin Area Regional Transit (SMART) Train is nearing completion, while some estimates put its opening date towards the end of 2016 some sources say that major construction may be completed by May 2016. SMART will eventually allow the entire North Bay Redwood Passage to access the festival in future years.
