Bicycle routes  

City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County has assembled bicycling routes and trails throughout the region on their countywide bike map, and specifically the Menlo Park segment.

Additionally, developed the interactive Bike Mapper tool, which identifies the best bicycling route between your starting and ending points.

Bicycle Master Plan  

In 2005, the City adopted a Comprehensive Bicycle Development Plan that provides a blueprint for making cycling an integral part of daily life in Menlo Park.

The City’s General Plan Circulation Element (1994) and the El Camino Real and Downtown Specific Plan Circulation Element (2012) also identify various bicycling facilities and improvements.
