Metrolink Bike Month 2021
Metrolink is celebrating "Bike Month" throughout May with an exciting lineup of engaging activities and virtual events in collaboration with our bike-loving SoCal Explorer partners Aventon Bikes, AllTrails, and the Los Angeles County Bike Coalition.
Metrolink trains are a convenient, safe and sustainable way to travel for both work and play. Check out our Metrolink Experience video featuring four cyclist friends on their way to Riverside, riding the 91/Perris Valley Line with their bikes.
