CYCLING

BIKEWAYS
The City of Merced has one of the finest city bikeway systems in the nation and has recently added a number of new lanes and routes to this extensive system. North-South includes "G" Street, "R" Street, and "V" Street. East-West on street lanes are Childs Avenue, 13th Street, East Main Street, and Yosemite Avenue. Bicyclists can follow a route to just about any area in the City. We're particularly proud of the Class I bike paths along Bear Creek and Black Rascal Creek. Each of these bikepaths extends from McKee Road (east) to Highway 59 (west). Detailed maps are available at the Parks and Community Services Office.
