Bicycling Prohibited through The Villages at Wild Oak: Please Walk Your Bike

As most of you are familiar, the Superior Court recently ruled that Timber Springs Drive and the Pedestrian and Emergency Vehicle Easement that traverses The Villages at Wild Oak are for pedestrian use only. Cyclists may still legally use these facilities if they dismount and walk their bike as pedestrians; however, failure to do so will constitute trespassing.

We ask that you please abide by the court’s ruling. When we are on our bikes, we are all ambassadors for cycling. It is through responsible behavior, cooperation and acts of good will that we will continue to the grow the bicycling movement and build strong community and electoral support for bike-friendly infrastructure investments and policies.

Safe bicycle access between Annadel State Park and the Valley of the Moon remains a top priority of the SCBC. We will continue to work closely with the City of Santa Rosa, the County of Sonoma and local stakeholders toward securing a safe and convenient bike route through this area, including advancing the proposed 13-mile Sonoma Valley Trail.
